Re: 220 Swift usine 35 grn MEF Berger Bullets
[ QUOTE ]
Have not tried it but I can tell you that getting an extra 500 to 800 fps more velocity by only dropping 5 grains of bullet weight seems like pretty optomistic numbers.
Not trying to discourage you from testing these bullets but I can tell you ballistically, your 40 gr load will smoke anything you can get with the MEF. A 50 gr Ballistic tip loaded to 4000 fps would be even better for ranges past 300 yards.
Now that I have been a stick in the mud, give 'er hell!!
[/ QUOTE ]I agree with Fifty you have to include b.c. ,you can shoot a spit wad at 5000fps but without b.c. sectional density,mass it is meaningless, if you want to get the most from a swift try a 1-8" barrel with 75 -80 gr bullets and reach out beyond 300yds
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
