    I know a guy that had 10 boxes I believe of the Winchester factory loads Super X is what I think they were. I can inquire and get back to you if you would like.

    That page from Accurate Arms above says it used a 24" Douglas barrel. I wonder what the "real world" velocities and pressures are with a 20" barrel Marlin.

    Rule of thumb decrees a 20 FPS loss or gain per 1 inch of barrel with everything else being equal. But oftentimes--everything else isn't equal--LOL!

    Thanks but I have some brass and bullets inbound through the mail. If that should fall through the cracks--I might be sending you a PM.

    I clocked factory Winchester 200 gr. ammo from a twenty inch barrel at just under 2100 fps. My handloads using 200 gr. Sierra ProHunter FPs over H322 give me 2200 fps in the same rifle.
