My velocites were approaching 2900fps with a 25" Shilen barrel. Please Start low and work up.
What primers? were they the molly coated silver scenars? I want to make sure I start low enough. I know that the moly coated ones will take a hotter charge than the plain vanilla, so I think that would be important to know as well.
What is the twist of you barrel?
I would like to keep the speeds on the lower end of cooking. 2800 is plenty of muscle for my needs HA HA
