Re: 300 WSM loads

I was just interested in getting some load data, not discussing the philosophy. I was concerned that quickload may not be accurate enough but it seems in this case it was spot on....

Re: 300 WSM loads

To answer my own question, absolutely no pressure signs at all with a node in the 66s. so i will try low 66s at 800m on saturday. recoil is stout in a 7.5 kg rifle, noticeably more than the saum at these velocities (assuming around 2800, no chrono).

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

You know , when some dude wrote a few posts back that he was only getting 8-900 rounds out of a saum before a rechamber , i was about to type that maybe he needed a few cleaning tips, ie carbon removal etc, but than i noticed that it was Rod and decided that he probably knew what he was talking abou...

Re: Trail boss 357mag loads

Sounds like there are two no-nos there.
1. Dont crush the trail boss flakes
2. Dont gum up your gun with black powder unless you want the authentic smoke cloud :)
