I have a feeling that they will work like a legigh controlled kaoss at 1150. I am sure I spelled that wrong but anyway thanks! I always enjoy watching bullet test. Almost as much as I like doing them.👍😁

Are you sure you want to bring these to the party at 1150 fps? I would think 1050 would be about the max with a BHN of 10.4? Maybe I’m wrong, been wrong before… 😉
