    I have had few people ask about chronograph data for the load above. Measured 5 shots this afternoon using a Magnetospeed.

    168gr Berger Classic Hunter bullet, 75gr H-1000, 215M primer
    Average Velocity= 2973 fps
    Std Dev= 7

    Had some questions regarding trades. Would consider other custom rifles, custom barreled actions, custom actions, or Nightforce optics.
    Thanks

    Did you try anything faster, or settle on accuracy?

    I did not try to get more velocity out of it. I was happy with the accuracy. Did very little load development- only tried 162gr Hornady ELD X bullets and 168gr Classic Hunter Bergers with H-1000 powder.
