Is a 50cal Knight Mountaineer not capable of shooting a 325gr bullet faster then 1700fps?

I shot the SST 300 grain flextips last year and wasn't very pleased with the performance of them.
Then im not sure you will like the 325gr FTX much better but i think the 325gr has a slightly thinner jacket than the 300gr SST/Shockwave.



Compared to some other 458s

Sure it can...





The problem is how far down range does it stay up to 1600/1700 fps?

It was the 300 grain so I'll pass on the 325. I do have some bloodlines (don't remember the weight I got now) that I had planned on trying also but I haven't shot them yet.
