What kind of velocity are you all getting from your 221's??? I am using Guns magizine's Charles Petty's load of 16 gr of lil gun and a 40 gr v-max out to the Chrono I went and it averaged 3575 out of my 700 lvsf with no pressure signs even with soft Herters primers. anybody else getting these results?

Dusty:

That sounds like a pretty good ball-park velocity for the 221 FB and a 40 grain bullet.

Just for reference, Hodgdon's web site shows 16.0 GR Lil' Gun as a max load with the 40 Grain V-max and a velocity of 3535 FPS. - BCB
