Please note that 8mm WILL be allowed at out Arnhem game, good news to some I hope.
Please stick to the 1J + 5% for auto, 2.32J max single shot.

.34g = 252fps + 5% auto, 383fps max single
.45g = 219fps + 5% auto, 333fps max single

Are these power limits the same for 6mm? I'm wondering what spring to run in my enfield. I run it at 1.3J in Guernsey. I can drop it below 1J by putting the orginal spring back but then you don't realy feel the shot.

Minimum engagement ranges for people with single action/sniper rifles would apply, think it is normally 30 feet. Make sure you have your side shooter on you :)

You do the maths - it's energy limits that matter!

fps calculator:

I make it:
.27g = 283fps + 5% auto, 429fps max single

But don't quote me... try it yourself!
