    Just wondering if anyone is running this combo and what velocities they're getting with 180 grain bullets? Is it possible to get 3100 fps?

    There are guys that claim to be getting 3100 fps with 180 gr but I don't know what barrel length they are using. I have a 25.5" that I get get 3050 but that is with a heavy bolt and case filled to capacity.

    I just started using the new IMR4007ssc powder and getting 3000 fps with plenty of room for more powder and no pressure signs. I haven't had the time or weather conditions to test any further but I stopped at this load because of the good accuracy and needed it for a hunting trip.
