    With the 208 amax's I get 3150fps (92.5gr match reamed) in the warmer days, I have switched back to ADI AR2225 (Retumbo) though as I have 3 tubs to use and get very similar results but best groups for me are at 3080fps

    I'm right around 3000 fps w/ 90.5 of H1000 was just curious how much more I could get.

    The top velocity I got for the 208 was 3300fps........But that was too hot as the primer became a little loose:rolleyes:

    I used this as a guide but they didn't do 210gr pills

    300 Remington Ultra Mag

    I have been shooting 92 gr of retumbo and getting 3080, with a 210 berger, as an average, but my velocity spread is a little much. about 90 FPS. H1000 is what i am trying next.

    I have been playing with N165 and lighter 168 pills as I have a 1:12 twist twist Rum at the moment......

    I would have to check the load but it is around 95gr and I am getting 3500fps and 22 spread

    3570 was the top speed but with tight lift so the preasure will be up there at 3500

    It looses nothing until past 700 yrds the wind and enrgy number favour the 208's I used to use when I had the 1:10 twist barrel.....under 20moa at 1000 yrds with a 200 zero helps as the scope on that rifle lacks travel (sightron got shifted to a target rifle:rolleyes: )

    In this rifle, the H1000 gave tighter groups than Retumbo.
