Does your rock 5r meet your standards for fps or did you pressure out before ideal velocity? Thanks fellas, brent
Both Kirby and I felt that it would be faster were it not for the considerable amount of bullet compression due to the wide lands. That said, it does OK, if not a little below average in the fps department, I think, although if I had the $ right now, I'd be likely to have it rebarreled, likely with a Krieger or Benchmark. But with either of them, I'd be checking on land width. Nothing like spending $6K, in part to get top fps out of a tube, and then realize there may be mechanical cause, that really shouldn't be there, keeping you from getting that velocity. I have put down 8 big game critters in the past 4 seasons, from 350 to 741 yds with accurate one shot hits, only one of which is from this year so far. As you know, those big 300g bullets really do a number.
