Awe, c'mon guys ... you're being too hard on that guy!

You can get 3600 FPS out of a .280 Remington (cough) Handi-rifle with a 139 grain SST and H4831. All it would take is around 69.4 grains of powder...too bad the case's max capacity is only around 59.9 grains. Also, the pressure would be up around 102,000 PSI.

(BTW) My max load using that bullet and powder was 59.5 grains, and out of a 24" barrel I managed to get 2955 FPS, and pressure signs were starting to make themselves obvious.
