    velocity will depend on several diffrent factors including barrel length, chamber tightness etc. It sounds like you are using hand loads as well so type of powder etc makes a big differance. Without more info it is hard to answer your question correctly.

    Weight of bullet
    Length of barrel
    Size of charge (powder amount)
    Type of powder
    Rifling on barrel
    Type of bullet (style)

    This is a list of information needed to answer that question.
