I'm getting 3000 FPS with a 160 accubond . 3.310" off the tip . 2.735" with my Hornady tool off the ogive . factory 24" bbl length . reloader # 22 powder .



with a Barnes TSX 160 I was getting 3100 FPS . same gun , same powder . 2.700" oal with my Hornady tool . I don't have the OAL off the tip wrote down .



I've quit using the TSX's I just didn't get the results I was looking for . so far I'm happy with the accubonds . Jim

This is my cousins rifle, its a T/C Encore with a 28" barrel so it looks like he should be able to push them 3050-3100 fps pretty easy.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
