    I too love my .270 AI with Lilja 30" SS 1:8'" 3G propelling the 175 Matrix VLD at 2993 FPS with 58 H4831SC (current accuracy load). Got close to 3100 FPS but groups opened up as well as pressure signs. Others are reporting more velocity with RL26, have a couple of 1-pounders but haven't had a chance to try them yet. The rig groups 5-7" inch at 1K if I do my part. It was primarily built for the heavies but might try the 130s and see how fast I can push it.
