Like I said, my Doppler was acting a bit out of sorts so I’ll do the test again on the 500gr Hornady rounds because that seems crazy good. I hope it’s right though because the rifle will shoot that round lights out.
    I never got any where near the 2100 fps mark in my H&R rifle with the 500gr using my reloads and they were fairly close to max using H110 powder. The highest speed I got with the Hornady 500 gr XTP was 1550 fps.
