Load has no pressure signs and accuracy is .5 MOA. I am thinking it should be around 3300 fps, but am curious if anyone has used a similar load that has velocity documented. Thanks.
I have a load for a 180 TSX in my RUM. I am running a 27" Lilja barrel. The load is: Nosler Custom Brass, Fed 215GM Mag Primers, 94gr Retumbo, COAL 3.635~ .070" off of rifling. This produced 3385 fps and showed great accuracy potential with a .562" pair at 300 yards (this is not my main load, would need to prove accuracy). ES was 17fps. Hope this helps.
