QuickLOAD indicates IMR 4895 should produce around 2350 fps and still be under max pressure.

That looks to be around maximum velocity without knowing your barrel length, bullet you are using, and fired case capacity.

Good luck.

That powder is closest equivalent to AR 2206H according to http://www.adi-powders.com.au/handloade ... alents.asp

That could be a close match but not an exact one.
Definitely a work up to it load thats for sure.

Really hard to be more helpful without barrel length and actual bullet being used.

I used 20 inch for the barrel and a 220 grain Partition.

I went off a 22" barrel and a 220gn Sierra RN.
