Thread: velocity

    velocity

    after almost getting my fox load sorted out i was just wondering if someone might have a rough idea of how fast its being pushed. i dont have access to a chrony and i appreciate without one i cant get an exact answer but its just something that im curious about. the rifle is a tikka t3 hunter 1/12 twist .223 and im shooting a 53grain vmax over 26.5 grains of h4895. cheers guys, even if all i get is the reply of buy a bloody chrono you tight git

    Why don't you simply look it up in your reloading manual that will give you as much of a guesstimate as most. Unless you run it through a chronagraph you will never really know what it is doing. The twist rate is nice to know but the length of the barrel may be more useful.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    look word of advice mate listen to what mike { 8 x 57 } has told you look in your manual

    then if your really want to test your groups against mine come down to monmouth for the h 4 h shoot
    if mikes running one this year .

    so i can tan your ass and send you back up to gainsbourgh feeling really pissed off regards pete

    haha oh pete ill bet you a crumble!! yeah i did just have a look, but was just curious if someone had "a more definte" figure from using same components/rifle etc. im not too worried by velocity. ill tighten that group up just for you. im assuming your .222 is shooting tighter?

    Of course it is, 0.24" groups at 200 yards.














    One shot groups that is.
