The 40 grain Vmax is ballisticly the best bullet for the .22 Hornet,...

Re: .204 Ruger velocities?

- What is the elevation? - What is the distance between the muzzle and chronograph? - What is the weather conditions? - Is the light over cast or bright and sunny? I've found in my experience that all of these things come into play. The above is not relevant for the original question. This trend is...
