Everyone told me the velocitys I was getiing out of my 30", 300 wby comp/hunting tube with both the 210 VLD (3275 fps) and the 230 Hybird (3195 fps) were impossable also!! When I convinced them that the speeds were correct, I was called reckless and ir-responsable by the wizzards of smart on the internet!!
Sometimes what it is is what it is. My drops have been comfermed with three different programs with both bullets out to 1500 yards. I had 7 firings on that Norma brass...the only PSI sign I ever had with the brass was that it started to expand in the web area. It fit fine in the shell holder on my press. What got me measuring was that it started to fit tight in the shell holder in my priming tool after the fifth firing. The brass was (otherwiae) fine...the PP's were still tight, the OAL hadn't changed, and I saw no sign of weakening of the brass above the belt. I tossed em to prove I wasn't reckless
!! What the hell...brass is cheap and I have lots of it.
Get rid of that verticle, keep watcing your brass for PSI, and enjoy life!!!
