Default RE: 6.5x55 vs 6.5-284

100 FPS is that all there is to this?

I get a little over 2700 fps using a max load of RL-22 (47gr)and a 140gr bullet out of a 29" barreled swedish mauser, you can load another full grain of the same powder in a stronger action, but the velocity gain isn't much. A 6.5x284 from all accounts pushes the 140 gr bullets around 3000 fps.
