    Looking for loading data for a 330 Dakota with 300g SMKs?
    FPS?
    Powder?

    Ernie it is, xp-100. I have a 9T Broughton 18" comming in a week or 2. I am going with a 1.250 for 4" HV Taper should be just over 1" at muzzle. Barrel will be around #4.7oz + brake 300g SMK around 2400 to 2500 fps. I have been running the numbers and looks like around 2000 ft lbs of energy at 1000 yards and plenty out to 1 mile at hi elevation /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif Hope the brake will let me use a rifle scope.
