You can expect somewhere from 2800 to 3000 FPS at least.

I have a 17" on mine and get 2785 fps with 140 Berger VLDH's. I pushed slightly higher and developed pressure signs.

PS..........Awesome cartridge. Worked extremely well on plains game in Africa and hogs here in Cali.

I’m running 2800 FPS with 140 Berger Vld’s from a 17” Carbon Six 1-8 twist barrel with H1000. 2850 FPS with 135 grain Hornady A-tips. The gun weighs in at 6 lbs with the 2-10 NF scope. Easy to pack around and light recoil with the Holland muzzle brake. I have pushed the 140’s faster but pressure signs were showing, and accuracy wasn’t as good. Have killed a nice black bear and a big 4x4 Arizona mule deer with it.
You’ll really like the 6.5 SAUM thumbup
