6mm rem, 55 gr Ballistic tips, 26" barrel
Well We tried some "Slower" loads, same bullet different powder
"Big game"book speed around 3900 fps, to cold to mess with the Magnospeed.
No wind , for Mt, and -14* , 200 yards, prone in the snow.
First target is test with normal 4200 fps load .

Second is with the slower "Big game" powder.

Then there is a silly rabbit that came to a shooting range.
