    Hello guys in the process of building two rifles. One being a 6.5mm Creedmoor. What kinda of velocity can I expect form a 28" Krieger Barrel loaded with either 140 Berger VLD Hybrid's or 140 Grain AMAX's. What type of powder or amount ? From what I have heard people say the dream velocity is close to 2850 fps. Just looking for some information y'all might have ! Thanks !

    With the length of your barrel and a good drop of rl17, I think you could accomplish that speed. Everyone I know chases accuracy in the creedmoor 1st, then look at speed if something isnt adding up.

    My Cooper likes 42.1 gr of H4350 with Fed 210M behind 140 gr Barnes Match Burners. 2800+ loaded .030 off the lands 5 shots under .5 at 100 yds. Haven't had a chance to shoot longer because of the 15mph winds for the last week.
