    I'm still waiting on my barrel, but was just wondering if anyone can give me an idea as to what velocity I can expect. I've done alot of reading on the net about it, but was looking for some first hand experience.

    My barrel is gonna be a 28" Criterion Bull Barrel on a Savage BVSS LA T&T by Fred at SSS. I was hoping to make use of the Retumbo and H4831sc that I have on hand. I may give RL17 a try also, but I sure like the stability of the Hodgons powders. I've also decided to use WW brass and BR2's as a starting place.

    Thanks!

    I thought the .284 with the heavies was a little more popular than this.
