Re: Need chrono\'ed fps for.308 varget loads PLEASE
I have found that Hodgedon's cliam of around 2730 FPS at 46 grains is VERY close. Of course, that is subject to change with the cases you use, the primers, seating depth, barrel length, twist, barrel quality...That list is huge. The best thing to do is buy a crony. You will loose or gain about 60 FPS per grain or 6 FPS per tenth.
Guessing a velocity for you a within 30 FPS with out shooting your stuff over a chrony is near impossible.

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.
