I'll give you the whole specification:
.223 CZ527 American sporter, 40g Nosler BT seated 0.020" off the lands, 28.0g of AA2460, Win brass, CCI 400 primers. Leaves the muzzle at ~3640 fps and shoots holes touching @ 100 off the bench in 3 CZ's I know of (one is mine, two with wood stocks, one with synthetic, I've shot them all).
The bullet's terminal performance is excellent. I've killed a couple hundred ground hogs DRT with that load. I'm just about to order another box of 250 of those bullets.
