Team,

Can anyone tell me what the FPS is when shooting a 250gr Barnes TEZ out of an Optima V2 with 100 GR Black Horn?  How much will it increase the FPS going to 110GR BH?

THANKS,
Hoosier

Not sure where it falls with 100 grains, but 110 out of my Apex is 2003 fps average

I forgot to mention that I shot these in Harvester EZ load smooth sabots

Yes that is quite funny ...a friend of mine that's living about 450 miles distant will chrono a load and if I duplicate it I get different results .
