1050 to 1100 fps. That will be very close. Said by a guy who's shot that exact charge with that exact bullet.
Awesome!!! I was hoping you would see this 35Remington!!!
I have been following/reading your posts/work/recipes Closely for the 25-20! It Sure Is a fun little combo and easy on the loadin supplies....

I was Tickled (to say the least ) after firing the first three rounds and realizing after going down to look that they were all in the first bullet hole!!!!!:marchmellow:

This was shooting off the top of a pickup bed with a Bulls Bag right before dark..?
I Can't wait to set at the bench relaxed and give it a go... Also to stretch it out and see what happens.? If the results after more loads made up (same) are similar (ish)at the bench out to 50-75 the Squirrels are Gonna be IN TROUBLE!!!!

Thanks
