About 2400-2600 depending on your load. There are several loads made for short barrels. You may want to look at the Hornady loads, and the try federal 168 grain loads. For some reason most Rugers seem to like the heavier pills. Barnes Vortex 150grain copper bullets do 2550ish.

Some of the Hornady loads get you into the 2800 range.
