    I've been trying to workout the ballistics of my hand loads without actually having to shoot hundreds of rounds but this is hard to do without a chronograph.
    I'm shooting a 26 inch bull barrel, 36g imr 3031, and a 52 grain hornady A-max. Does anyone know what muzzle velocity this should be getting? I've been reading about other 3031 loads and it would seem this load is really hot, but no neck cracking and extremely accurate.
    Thanks for any help

    Can't help with 52 grainer but with a 50 grain and 3031 34.6 gr gets you 3820 fps.
    40 gr ballistic tip & 4320 with 40.0 4580 fps.
