Re: 300 Tejas

either your chrony is up the duff or your loads are so hot that at best you will throw your cases away after 1 firing, or at worst cause serious injury to yourself or somone else.... if you are getting close to cheytac case performance from a 300RUM case.... you are living very dangerously...

Re: 300 Tejas

so inform us.... how many reloads are you getting from your stated load of 111gr of 7828ssc with 300gr projectile @3200fps?
let me guess, this is the first time....

my hero, youve survived a way over pressure load...
how about you tell us what was your ES or SD for this load was???
let me guess, you have no idea...

And lastly, how about you tell us what the ID of your primer pockets are after shooting this load???
let me guess, your mate borrowed your verniers the other day and cant measure it....

Why are you so worried about what limit he is willing to push his rifle to. So what if he only gets one reload, if that is indeed the case. I know some guys that will sacrifice brass to reach the speed they want to shoot. You seem very negative and attacking right from your first post in this topic. You are coming across like a real asshole.

Re: 300 Tejas

If one can push a 300 SMK out of a 338 Edge at 2950, I think it would be possible to push a 300 grain 375 bullet out of an improved 300 Ultra case somewhat faster. How much faster? Donno, but I would expect an extra 100 to 150 fps for a max of around 3100. I really dont see the advantage for doing this as the BC on the 300 gr. 375 projo would be much less than the 300 gr. 338 projo and any advantage gained by the extra velocity would evaporate fairly quickly. There are no free lunches so it comes down to giving up a little here to gain a little there and in the end you wind up where you started.

Why? because its not safe what he is doing, the cases pressures are rediculous to get that kind of velocity from an improved RUM case. 111grns of 7828 with a 300grn pill FFS!

old mate comes on here braggin about how much velocity he gets from his rifle but makes no remark as to his brass life, accuracy, or safety. what if someone inexperienced decided to try that load in their new rifle?

Anybody can push a hot load out whatever rifle they care to, but at least if your gonna brag about it, tell us the price you are paying in terms of brass life or early pressure signs so that we can compare it with honesty to other loads and calibers. I for one (and im sure there are others here) am interested in this 375tejas caliber, id just like some REAL and USEFUL info about its ballistics.
