Re: Is there a "best" velocity for 30 cal?
There are (more times than not) optimum velocities for any given bullet. Much of this depends on barrel twist. Also as with most other things, most bullets perform better when they arent "hot rodded".
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
