Without reading back to see what all speeds everyone is getting that actually that sounds about right to me. My main load of 85gr Noslerís is running 2900fps so dropping 10gr bullet weight and getting 160 fps gain sounds reasonable.
Think about it this way in the 250 Savage they dropped the bullet weight to 87gr to get 3000fps and thatís burning more powder from a longer barrel. I realize they were keeping pressures a little low but hey they still do on factory ammo. cool Pretty efficient little round.
