    You might be better off with a slower burning powder.

    60gr Viht N165 gives me 2850-2900fps with 150gr Sierra Gamekings out of my 22.4" 270 Win.

    I expect that you'd get 3000+ fps with 150gr....

    I'm getting 3650 fps from a 19.75" barrel. 2.54" OAL...

    I've had the 70gr Blitzkings over 3000fps. They have a reasonable BC for a good trajectory. Haven't tried them on game though.

    I've just got a Sightron S-TAC 2-10x32 which is a good fit for my Sako A1. They're quite reasonably priced over here and lightweight.

    I shot a small roe doe this morning at 70m with the 90gr TGK (1:8" twist Sako 6x45, 23gr Viht N133). Live weight would be around 15kg. My muzzle velocity is around 2550fps so impact velocity would...

    I'll be out for a stalk this morning with 90gr Gamechangers in my 6x45. Will report back when I get anything. They're very accurate for me with no elaborate load development.

    6x45 'carbonlight'

    Here are pics of my rifle that I've bedded into the carbon stock that I made a couple of months back.
