    i am one of those that is not hooked on heavy bullets..

    my pet load is 96.0 grains of reloader 22 under a 150 barnes tsx, at just slightly over 3600 fps with a 26 inch barrel.
    i most likely could go faster, but ragged holes say "no"..
    besides a cow elk at 723 yards this past season, didn't like the load much.... 1 shot... 1 kill...
    sighted in 2.5 inches high at 100 yards, 13 clicks up puts me dead on at 500 yards....
    gotta go look at the cheat sheet to tell ya the rest...

    hodgehodge there are a couple of ways to measure your chamber. The best way I have found it Honadys Lock-n-Load OAL gauge. There are also a few other methods that I am not very familiar with.
