    Supersport,

    That looks like quite a "light" load

    Do you have the case capacity in grains of H2O?

    If not you are looking at approx. 2618 fps MV and 2282 ft lbs ME

    Hope that helps

    My Nosler manual shows that the most accurate powder tested for 150grn bullets was N140 and the most accurate charge was 42.5 grn giving 2645 fps.

    Trouble is with manual velocities is that they often do not use normal production barrels but pressure barrels and as barrels vary it is very rare to get two the same.
