250gr LFP 8.0 grUnique 1,000 fps1.58" Win LP guest
Astonishingly accurate in Rossi M92 carbine. 5-shot/50m one-hole grps from rest were common. Still under 2" @ 100m. Vel is a "best guess" but at 8.2-8.4 gr/Unique there was a discernable super-sonic "crack". One can probably work CAREFULLY up to 9.0/Unique for more velocity, but no combination tried has given same acc as 8.0/Unique
