I worked up slowly and used the same 10 cases for all the load development. After three loads the pockets were still fine..... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Dan I wouldn't be too concerned what POP thinks.There are manny on the internet that believe that if they have not seen it or experienced it then it is not possiable. My rifle will not get the speed that you are getting,but that does not mean anything to your rifle

Re: 180 TXS at 300 yards

Look... All I am saying is that 3500 fps with a 180 grain bullet out of a 300 RUM is not "natural" from a safety standpoint. I have worked with over 20 300 RUM's and I have never seen such speed safely. The most I have experienced with acceptable Case head expansion is 3350-3375 MAX.

BTW jwp475 :

What is there to see? I am not saying it is not possible because I have not seen it. I am saying it is possible but probably not safe! All you have to do is add powder to realize such speeds!
We are not talking about taking an elk at 800 with Matchkings here. We are talking about Physics! No one can fool or beat physics! No such thing as a free lunch remember? So if you do not understand my posts please do not patronize me.

Re: 180 TXS at 300 yards

Dan B,

Gentlemen,

In the most peaceful possible way let me say this, POP is right!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve also reached 3500 f/s with 180 gr. Barnes triple shock and definitely is not right… that’s a time bomb especially with that powder which is temperature sensitive.
Three reloading and primer pocket still ok? Dan, what chronograph are you using?
The max range velocities that POP mentioned is what I had figured would be about max and equally safe. 3400 f/s out of a 26” barrel makes me nervous! I have been reloading for almost 35 years and I have always liked working up carefully to its very limits and obtaining 3500 f/s with 180 gr. Is doable, but not for me to carry around, I intend to live to get even older! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Respectfully,

Javier O Moncada.
