probably something to do with the bullet weight might produce less momentum and less penetration that way?
it starts out with a much higer velocity and actually more energy but has a BC of .450 instead of .496 (Federal Gold Medal 175)
but i think it still out paces the .308 just im too lazy to calculate this when the ballistic changes at differnt velocities
accuracy is great ive herd some people say recoil is less... i cant tell the differnce... thier velocities are higher i can notice a differnce between Aussie surplus 144 grain for example kicks like a .223 not that any of these .308 loads kick that much (cause its a ligher bullet at probably similar velocities)
now then accuracy is comperable and they both out pace 168 grain (federal gold medal match) yet 168 gr does better at 100-300y id say
my rifle likes 175 grain a lil better but its hard to say for sure its close

Mel:
they mention 24" barrel in the catlog
why i dont know maybe an error

but it is still a nice accurate round from a 26" barrel
be interesting to see how the 22" barrel on your Bravo handles it, and what speed it spits it out at, if ya want to try a pack of it and see how it does

Scatch:
bc stands for ballistic coefficient, its a coefficient to determine how much velocity degredation is at various distances, how much a bullet will drift in wind and all too

Bead Drawer
im probably about 100 fps short but i havnt used a chronograph so dont quote me on this, just judging by the bullet drop that i have had out to 600
its about a full minute higher either that or im too stupid and cant count 1/4 minute clicks from where it was and where i thoguht it would be

Mel:
www.ammoman.com has Federal GM 155 gr for $19/free shipping (last i checked)
when i order i have it in no more than 3 days, last order, 5000 rounds of .22 LR ammo came in 2 days, 40 lbs of ammo free shipping :)

velocities arnt hurt with your 22" barrel with the 168/175 grain if i recall correctly will be interesting to see if thats true for a 155 grain bullet
speaking of the Bravo when can we see a pic of that put in the gallery section :)

well what do you have?

its a couple of weeks when will i see your stuff in the gallery section?

do you have a class III or how do you get the supressor there
and do you have to 'explain' to the government what you 'need' one?
