Needs to make 2650 or it will bounce off.
Add more powder.

roflmao This is true I wouldn't shoot anything larger than a squirrel with that load at those low speeds.

Nah,That's way too slow. I was pushing a 140 VLD at 2900 fps yesterday with RL-17 out of my Creedmoor,and the primer's were just starting to flatten. Those things were getting up there!

Buzz go hunt and enjoy the mild load, the deer or hogs will not argue about being shot with that round as dead critters do not complain.

My 260 with the 143 ELD-X came together best at 2825. I could get some more fps, but I'm not about to mess with a load that's .5 MOA or better.
