Just shot 30 rounds of the new Buffalo Bore ammo through my Marlin 336 which has a cut-down 19" barrel. Velocity was in the 2071 to 2106 range out of this short tube. Once sighted-in, I was shooting two-inch groups at 100 yards. There is more recoil with this round of course -- for those of you who don't know, this Buffalo Bore offering is a 240-grain JFN. I think it is safe to say this cartridge does what Tim Sundles say s it does. Namely shoot at 2200 fps (out of a regular barrel) and kill large game in the 150-200 yard range.
