    using 168 or 180 berger bullets in 1/9 twist barrel can you get 3100 fps with 28 in barrel.

    You should be able to attain 3100 easily with both probably over 3200 with the 168s.

    Nick using 175 Sierra's and US869 I hit 3o69 with a 26 inch barrel at 102 grains. Accuracy was at 101 grains at 3003. Now I want a longer barrel. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    i could shoot 180 bergers around 3230, 30" barrel but with a 7 twist. that was with 872 powder, mild load. i know retumbo or 869 would probably go faster.
