    Still curious what velocity this load honestly develops. For example, Federal's LE223T3 loading is actually FASTER than Winchester's RA556B 5.56 loading (LE223T3 is typically 1-200fps hotter. Even though RA556B is 5.56 pressure, and LE223T3 is .223 pressure, and they are within 2gr prjectile weight of each other). .223 vs. 5.56 doesn't mean shit in the real world after the bullet leaves the barrel. What matters is velocity, not pressure (to external ballistics). I'm curious what this round ACTUALLY clocks.

    Have you had a chance to test this round out? Also curious if you know of a release date on it?

    Not yet--probably at least another 3-4 mo at the earliest.

    I can chronograph some if you have some samples to send.

    I can do 11.5" and 16", suppressed as well.

    When I get some, I'll be happy to. It's cheaper than me buying a chrony.

    I don't doubt your statement but I just picked up a case of the 64g with a 2015 head stamp. I wonder if they decided to go with both or were just finishing out what they had in stock.

    So...when is the 75gr ammo going to hit the market? I can buy 62gr Gold Dot all day long today, but the 75gr stuff we were told about a LONG time ago? Nada.
