Re: 264 win mag and 140 gr VLD

I cannot get that velocity with my 28 inch Krieger barrel. 66.5 gr of Retumbo will get me slightly over 3200 fps with 140 gr Berger Hybrids. Fed 215 primers. I would check the level on your sensors when you set up your chronograph. My guess it is not level and thus your distance is less than 2 feet when you shoot over it.

Re: 264 win mag and 140 gr VLD

the best I could get with Retumbo with the Berger 140 grain VLD Hunting
68 grains
Nosler Brass
Federal 215 M
OAL 3.300
2,969 fps.
I started again with Retumbo and H1000 this is what I got so far.

Retumbo
Winchester Brass resized from 7mm Remington Magnum Brass
Federal 215M
OAL 3.300
70 grains
3,125 fps no pressure sign*

H1000
Winchester Brass
Federal 215M
OAL 3.300
69.5 grains
3,073 fps no pressure signs

Retumbo seems to heat the barrel up pretty quick and H1000 just feels warm. Ill going to see if I can raise it a little more and then see how they shoot I will post those results.
