What velocities and accuracy have you been getting?

I think this would be a sweet 400 yard chuck rifle. Probably my next build.

Re: Anyone load for the .221 fireball improved?

I've had several 300yd+ kills with my .221 (non AI). A little extra velocity from the AI configuration should get you to 400yds.

I prefer the 40gr B-Tip with LilGun @ 3,600ft/sec.

It is a calm weather rig. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I prefer the 40gr B-Tip at 3600fps as well,but I can barely get that out of my .222 let alone a fireball are you using a 36" barrel or a shooters Chrony to get that vel.?

Oh yeah! It might even go farther. I have seen a .22 hornet hit a 9" gong every shot on a calm day, and the fireball improved would be quite a bit faster. Would be fun.
