    In the 3k ballpark, probably just under. But still they have to go over the chrono. there would still be to many variables

    my program shows 3 kinds of 85gn spitzer with BC's of .304, .307, .315
    I went with the latter

    loads from 37.9gn to 44gn with 43.5gn (86%load density) of N160 pushing 3150fps being the best
    40gn shows as 2900fps

    but as usual you will need to work up a load for that rifle and this may have no bearing on the best load for it

    Can you you put the COL up?

    If they are Sierra 1520 at the standard COL of 2.710 they are running about 2490.

    this is wat he went by but started at 36gr upto 43gr of vit160,no pressure signs,but groups opened up after 40gr,but if there only pushing 2490 they must be under deer legal?

    Velocity (squared)
    =========== x Bullet Weight (in Grains)
    450240

    i.e. 1377 ft./lbs.......... mate.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Looks a worry when you have highlighted 75grn and not 85grn as in the original post hope that was deliberate.
