    And 3060fps is Surpriseing thought you would be less than that with such a short barrel
    I thought you would probably be getting more 270/08 velocitys as quite a bit of that 58gn powder change would be burned in the air after it left the barrel surely
    Seems a nice handy kit
    Surprisingly I thought that the suppressor would be black as anything after just a few rounds but looking in it with a torch it's not, R17 seems a strange powder being on the slow burning end of the spectrum but it works well in short barrels in a lot of calibers, guess I will have to give it the old night time test with no suppressor to really see what's getting burnt outside the barrel

    Quickload says that with that barrel length and load (but not tuned for COL and case capacity) that you are burning a bit over 98% of the powder. That's not too bad, lots of fairly popular loads are round the 95%
    nor-west and Ryan_Songhurst like this.
