    42.5 of 2209, or 44.7 of Superformance. No obvious gain from using SPF so I stick with the 2209 cos its usually much easier to get hold of.

    Yup, running an RPR, chrony tells me its doing 2653 fps, but validation shows its a bit faster. Shot out to 1400 no problem, so boringly bloody accurate!

    Do different brand primers really make any difference?

    What are your recorded velocities, peak or average over a number of shots?
