I see 2900 fps achieved in the new reloading data, is this a realistic velocity? Also, has anyone experimented with the Barnes 130 gr TTSX with good results?
According to Hodgdon your IMR 4350 outperforms the HB 100V by 130fps, no advantage there. Superformance only nets a gain of about 40fps.
2750fps seems slow, Hodgdon list that for a Minimum charge, what is your load and barrel length?
