    I am loading 66.5 grs Hodgdon Retumbo in a case made from Winchester 7mm Rem. mag cases fired by a CCI 250 primer with a 130 gr Nosler Accubond bullet and I get average 3350 fps out of my 27 3/4" Shilen barrel. Half MOA accuracy and 3350 fps combined with the 130 Accubond bullet and I don't worry about shooting deer from point blank to waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out there.
