LIL'GUN
These loads were all shot, with the Hornady .452 250gr XTP and MMP HP sabots. These velocities were record at 15' from muzzle.

1.9cc dipper = 29.5 grains = 1,974 fps

2.2cc dipper = 33.8 grains = 2,185 fps

2.5cc dipper = 38.2 grains = 2.341 fps

2.8cc dipper = 41.9 grains = 2,467 fps

3.1cc dipper = 46.5 grains = 2,600+ fps

3.4cc dipper = 51.2 grains = 2,767 fps

The 3.4cc dipper (51.2 grains) put three shots into a group just under 1" at 100yds. The sabots looked good, not burnt thru or fingers missing. Like I said, more data on and info
on Lil' Gun will follow.
