    A chronograph will be invaluable in your developement and in the long run will take the guess work out of your exhaustive study and will help get you to your desired endpoint. If you already employ one please disregard my 2 cents!

    I've loaded my 500 Jeffery up to 2510 fps with 570g Barnes TSX's. I had to switch to a slower power, IMR 4350. No pressure signs, recoil was stiff. Fun index was low. We all have our recoil limit. That's why I throttled back to 2300 fps. You'll find your perfect load within your recoil tolerance.
