    I'm hoping someone out there is shooting Hornady factory 168 grain A-max or A-max TAP out of a 20" barrel.

    I'd like to know the average velocity.

    Thank you

    twist rate on your barrel? I probably guess around 2575-2650 fps.

    It is a Remmy SPS-T, which I think is 1 in 12"

    Thanks Rob!

    Black Hills runs 2620 chronoed out of my gun. Im using Hornady TAP now with a chart for 2600 and im still making hits. So I think 2600 should be close.

    Both loads using 168AMAX and 20" LTR with a couple thoughts rounds through it.

    The TAP i am using is the red box police stuff not the black box stuff.
