I dont doubt anything you say, it just seems a liottle odd.
Also, wouldn't backing of a little from max load save a lot of throat wear?
Sir, I dont percieve you as being a butt head. I can see where the post you mentioned looks odd being 3200 is normal and 2893 is below normal.
Allow me to elaborate.
In fact, instead of hijacking this thread any further I will post a link to the new thread below. Here if you read carefully and pay attention to the velocity documentation AND the dates, you will understand the message of what I am trying to say here.
300 RUM barrel life. The whole documantation.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
