I put the 700 BDL 7mm Rem Mag in a HS Precision sporter stock and mounted a Leupold VXIII 4.5-14x50mmLR w/30mm tube and illuminated reticle.I also handload for the rifle and it really likes Nosler 160 gr. partition running 3100 ft per second,she's a shooter!!
That is really fast for 160gr. My 160 loads avg 2950fps w/ IMR 4831. How do you get that velosity?? Highest published data I have is 3000fps.
Nice pellet Rifle!!
OK If we're splitting hairs 3062 fps on my chronograph with the rifle pictured and the load custom developed for that rifle and chamber only. It's a HOT Load.
Some of the older loading data that I have as far back as the early 60s shows 160gr. nearing 3100 fps with their max. loading limit a bit higher than today's current max load data.
