Worked up LeverRevolution today with 130gr Berger. 18" 3r 10 twist stainless with specwar suppressor
31.7 2464fps SD-15.6
32.0 2490fps SD-32.5
32.3 2514. SD-5.0
32.5 2547. SD-24
32.7 2573. SD-14.0
33.0 2572. SD-10.2
I stopped at 33 when velocity flattened. No visual swipes but measuring case head expansion nominal was .419. 32.7 gr was .421 and 33 had 2 at .421 and one at .423 so I'm thinking 32.7 is my safe limit.

LVR is one of the better powders for 130 grain bullets. 130 Berger has good accuracy and high BC but do not expand or fragment. Consider 130 Fusion or 130 or Speer SPBT for hunting.

Xman thank you for all the effort you've put into this forum and answering all my questions, hunting is makers, cbb, or sst's. These are strictly target more of a see if i could duplicate or beat the grendel and consolidate to 1 round. Between this, the insane numbers my 12.5" puts up and reliability not a hard choice. Now if i could just get H to spin up a couple of blackout barrels for subsonic fun id be golden.

I understand why H doesn't do 300 BO barrels. I've had two 16" 300 BOs and said never again. Supersonic rounds were anemic with the Barnes 110 TTSX being one round that made it viable. Subsonic turned out to be just for fun because a 200 grain subsonic bullet is basically a 45 pistol. I'm lucky my hog kill rate was as good as it was. Had to go back to 6.8mm to be effective. .... Then I saw a Rosco 10.5" 300 BO barrel for sale with a pistol length gas and grabbed it in a weak moment. It shoots lights-out (3 touching at 50 yards). So now I have a BO again for fun.

After I shot a big 10 last year with the blackout and maker bullets I was done with it for hunting. Can't blame the bullet it expanded perfectly round just doest have the ass to punch thru. Shot 2 does with the famed blacktip same story 1 I couldn't even find an entrance wound on onc once we tracked her
