not generally. you need to push them at least 2,700 fps to keep them supersonic at 1,000 yards. With the 175s you can get it done with most any velocity over 2,550 fps.

Caver- Me and Dan were using 168s but we were using Re-15. I forget the load since I lost my data cards.......... :( If my memory serves me right, we were using 42.5 gr I believe.

I am very interested in this load to because my 5R seemed to really like 168s. I want a good 168 load, but I also want to play w/ 175s and 190s eventually.

I think that 45 or 46 is the MAX load on that... so I can see that 47 is a little hot :lol:
