Yes I have. It was around 3240 fps but the more accurate node was 100fps slower. I believe I was using H4831. Can’t remember if it was that or RL23, but I’m pretty sure it was H4831.
Thanks. I'm getting the exact same velocity out of mine with the 124's ahead of 52.5 gr H100V, Lapua brass, Fed 210, OAL 3.088" in a 26" CA Classic...

Got to test some of the N560 with the 123gr AH and I think I might have found a new powder to run with for deer season.

24” Proof Prefit - Dead Air Nomad L
6.5 PRC
Lapua Brass
Fed 210M
N560
1/8th turn FCD
2.937 COAL

61.6 - 3294
61.9 - 3298
62.2 - 3318
62.5 - 3344
62.8 - 3377
63.1 - 3374 - Ejector and Sight bolt
63.4 - 3402 - Ejector and heavy bolt

Looks like I’m going to load 62.8 and roll with it as N560 seems to pick up about 90 fps with less pressure over the IMR 4955 loads I was planning to use.

Your H100V loads are almost spot on for me with ADG brass except I was getting 3400 at 58.2gr from a 24”. When I do my part the groups are great at the higher speed.View attachment 259278View attachment 259279

Also I did the test from 51 to 59.5gr of IMR 4955 and the entire group was right at 2 MOA, take out the two lowest and two highest and you have from 52 to 58.9 producing a group slightly over one MOA for 16 shots.

Do you have speeds or pressure symptom notes for this run? Can you number which holes were what shots?

I stopped at 59.5 as it was max pressure with very heavy bolt lift and ejector marks, I believe light ejector marks started at 58.6 if I remember correctly. Below is the velocity chart from my excel notes, also note that two other rifles maxed at 58.6gr showing the same pressure signs as my rifle did at 59.5gr.

I’ve since switched the barrel to a different action which shows pressure earlier and am now running VV N560. My N560 load should give me around 3370fps, range was to busy for the LabRadar today but I did check my zero for the opening of deer season next week. There’s three in there but I’m not sure which hole it went through so I just used the two for group sizing.

Very faint ejector @ 57.5, I think I can push a little more, but I’m about out of room. The only thing I have faster is IMR 4064 and that will be too fast, won’t it? 20” rem factory barrel btw.
