As has already been stated, it's intended use is for rifles that require shorter rounds, like the AR-15. I have a few of them. From a 16" barrel, I load the 90gr TNT is to 2930fps, the 100gr Nosler Accubond to 2800fps, the 110gr Accubond to 2700fps, and the 115gr Nosler CC to 2640fps. You can add approximately 300 fps if they are shot from a 24" barrel. These loads require the use of a SPC2 chamber and 1:11-12 twist barrels, Remington screwed up the chamber print when they submitted it to SAAMI.
