Roughly 1700fps MV by VOLUME....i think so. That beats the snot out of a 44mag with a 250gr.

Thanks guys. I want to try this set-up for my 10 year old. Hopefully it shoots well out of the Sidekick.

SideKick as in a NEF ML?

They actually make a ACP conversion just for that gun...I think Precision Rifle makes them. I would also consider the 250gr GoldDot too. Thats a good bullet for that speed.

I hope you dont mean a side lock.
