Twin Cities M80 Ball 147gr 2717fps (vs 2790)

165 gr Hornady SST w/43.5gr RL-15, 2600fps
165 gr Sierra GK SPBT w/43.6gr RL-15, 2555fps
These mirror my chrono'd speeds seen from various ammo types (Federal, Winchester, NATO, Wolf/WPA) It's the barrel length itself, not so much rifle specific. A 16" barrel gives up about 2700FPS. in ideal conditions.
