8mm Titan...It's like the bean field of dreams. If you build it, they will drop.
Just curious as to the performance you would expect from your 8mm Titan...??

Got my attention...

Yup, a very good bit better! Should call Dan and see if he would make some 250 gr MTH's

A lot of good bullets in 8mm ('323) are out there! F. ex. Sierra 220grs, bonded Woodleighs 220 - 250grs (!!), 200grs Accubond and so on... but no Bergers

I wouldn't even know where to guess...I would guess it would probably push a 250 between .300 RUM and .338 Lapua speeds. At this point it's anybody's guess as to how it will perform...

I really would like to see this one come to life...

Lack of suitable bullets being the biggest detractor. The 200grn SMK is no slouch but a 250-ish would be a good bit better...

I nearly picked up a 325wsm for kicks & grins, it seems to be a nice little stomper in it's own right.

Ya know if Dan would make up some 250's, i could see myself (or you) being the first kid on the block with say a 8mm/338 LM Imp. I could see them being a .8ish BC bullet traveling in excess of 3200 fps down a 32" nitrided tube with a good load of RL33

I could shoot with Broz and his LRKM
