There are several powders in the Nosler manual where 3020 fps would be at or below the velocity for the minimum load
RL22 - minimum 87 gr, 3070 fps, maxium 91 gr, 3160 fps
H1000 - minumum 96 gr, 3030 fps, maximum 100 gr, 3125 fps
RL25 - minimum 94 gr, 3131 fps, maximum 98 gr, 3227 fps
and loading a high capacity case below minimum has dangers of secondary explosion effects. All of the powders listed have a maximum velocity listing above 3100 fps except for one and it is at 3095 fps. So, EXPECT to have velocity more than 3020 fps.
