Temp 76 degrees. Chrony F1

1991 Colt 45 ACP
6.8 Grains Power Pistol, 230 Gr. FMJ, WLP.
816, 789, 835, 803, 835 FPS

The rest are from a Remington 700 ADL 22 inch Barrel in 308 Win.

Cavim 147 gr ball.
2713, 2754, 2775, 2756, 2760 FPS This stuff is surprisingly accurate for cheap Mil Spec. ball ammo.

46.5 grains Varget, cheep 147 gr FMJBT (Factory scconds?), WLR, Commercial Winchester Brass.
2778, 2790, 2711, 2762, 2794 FPS. Trying to duplicate Mil Spec ball load. It's close. Accuracy isn't quite as good as the Cavim but close, a higher quality bullet could make it better than the Cavim real quick.
