I just finished the rifle a couple months ago and haven't ran it through a chronograph yet. They aren't hot, though, I'm expecting 2950 or so. I really like this caliber and this rifle. Awhile back, a friend wanted to know what I thought about the cartridge. Simple question, if you neck down a 30-06 and bump the shoulder out a little, how bad could it be?
JD338, very good numbers, thanks. You guys may talk me into opening the chamber to the AI. My barrel is a #5 contour Shilen SS. Ought to work great.
JDJHNTR, sounds like a fine rig for what you built it for.
Good hunting, Tom
