  • Bornaghi - Speed measured at the muzzle or 3 Ft away?

    how are Bornaghi shells measured at the muzzle or 3 feet away?

    thanks

    Bornaghi's are measured per US specs at 3 feet.

    But many EU similars like the Clever line are measured at the muzzle, so an EU load at 1300 is about the same speed as a Bornaghi at 1250. For example, I've chrono'd Bornaghi Star 1250's against Clever Bal d'or 1300's and they are within 10 FPS...
    My stuff: K-80 w/ S&S custom Stock and 32" flat rib, thin-wall choked barrels; Castellani vest or jacket or Lonesome Charlie pouch, Pilla glasses, Bornaghi Star or Gold 1oz 7-½'s @ 1250 fps ammo.

      Thanks, Jack! I bought 4 flats of Bornaghi from Able during their free shipping promo back at Christmas. I hope to burn through some boxes this weekend!

        Bornaghi is my main goto ammo, I know you'll like it too.
