your serious about the 210 at 3600????

Even if he thinks he is, he's not. My buddy has a 32" full custom RUM and it tops at like 3240fps. No way to add 350fps to that without 10" of barrel, and a 5" diameter action made of pure cold forged asteroid-distilled unobtainium.

I've heard of a guy shooting a BR 300 rum at over 3300fps (3350 is in my head..), but he throws away the brass after one full power firing, and he is using a massive ejectorless BAT action and huge barrel on a BR HG.

This is either a defective chronograph, or unchronographed, based on a faulty ballistic program input, or maybe just a typo.
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
