    Sorry Bud, been in the bush. You cannot go wrong with anything between 2200 and 2300 fps. I've always been happy with up towards the 2300 fps mark.

    I shoot 380 gr North Forks at 2275 FPS so 400 gr at 2200 + FPS sounds about right.

    Sweet! Except for the "carbine":p barrel! I like anything over 2150 fps. My most accurate load is 72 grs of IMR4064 with 400gr Barnes Triple Shock for about 2200 fps.

    That's just about right. Velocity loss will be about nil. Nice looking.
