Anyone chronograph this cartridge in a 14" Contender barrel?
Just curious what kind of velocity is obtained.
Thanks,
Charlie

In 2007 I chronied that ammo. I only fired 5 shots across the chrony which was 15 feet from the muzzle. It averaged 2442fps from my 14" barrel.

Looks like a good load. It's too bad the round isn't more popular in general with more factory fodder.

That looks very good, thanks pab1.
Had a 14" barrel about 7 or 8 years back but didn't have a chrono, traded it for a 30-30 as could find the 7-30 Waters ammo anywhere locally. Now shooting Hornady 140 grain Monoflex which can't find anywhere locally, so maybe a 7-30 barrel may be in my future.
Thanks again,
Charlie
