Hodgdon book max charge, loaded to a LONGER OAL, and .080 from the the rifling (which is what I did) DOES NOT equal overpressure. No way. No how. Your earlier assertion that .375 H&H brass is somehow weak is equally bogus. Feel free to not like it if someone experiments, but what has been said about factory tendency to underload the cartridge is accurate. You are all wet on this one and way off base.
I am only trying to keep some from getting in trouble Not starting a ******* contest.
Your comment only shows how little you actually do know if you believe that a book that has
calculated velocities and pressures and no real world pressure test in SAMME chambers or
screwed up chambers is OK. If you read the disclaimer in the book it even states that it is only a
guide line and all loads should be worked up because of different chambers and cases design.
As far as I am concerned You can load what ever you want a hot as you want.
On this site we try to keep people out of trouble but some people you just cant help so
do what you want You obviously know more than everyone else. and who knows, someday
I may read about you.
I have been shooting and reloading for over 50 years and have seen many things that went wrong
and many brass failures for no apparent reason so go with your self.
There are many cartridges that are not designed for the higher pressures and can be dangerous
if loaded to todays pressures Just like the guns that were built for them.
