I've got a Remington 700 BDL in 7mm RM. I'm preparing for an elk hunt and was shooting over a chronograph to get my muzzle velocity. Which are listed below:
1: 1473 fps
2: 1454 fps
3: 1426 fps
4: 1402 fps
I'm shooting Federal 160gr Partitions so I know my velocities should be approx...
Yesterday I was Reading in Jack O´connor´s book “The Hunting Rifle” (p. 68) that .270 win factory loads were charged with 55 grains of du pont 15 ½ powder to produce 54,000 feet/pounds, resulting in a muzzle velocity of 3160 ft/s when firing a 130 grain bullet from a 24 inch barrel.
