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.

Thanks DOC , I will see what's the best grouping I get with speeds between 2200 and 2300

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.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
