I have been working on a matrix to demonstrate where we can look at the effect of velocity on our HIT% and the corresponding RECOIL. +/- 3% but this should give you some real insight. The 90 VLD look very appealing for PRS style matches in a 22 Creedmoor or 22 Nosler for a gas gun and for the best of all worlds the 7mm because at low velocity it beats everything in Hit % with a manageable recoil and at high velocity it is a long range hammer.
