300 Tejas

I am thinking of buying a 300 Tejas. I have a buddy who also shoots the Tejas. Does anybody know how to get dies for the 300 Tejas? Do you use the 300 Rum to load the 300 Tejas? Any insight on the subject would be appreciated.

    Don't know where in Utah you are, but the originators of the Tejas cartridges are in Ogden.
    My guess, is you fireform the cases, and then just necksize from there

    Cross Canyon Arms would be the best place to buy the dies. You use 300 RUM brass and can supposedly once the brass if formed you can increase load data from a regular RUM by 10%.

    Brad at CCA can give you all the data you need.

    I have been in to talk to Brad but I didn't ask him about reloading information. I just thought it was one of those deals were they want you to buy ammo from them and pay allot more for it. They would have to pay somebody to hand load the ammo so I would think it would be expensive.

    I can't see a barrel life longer than 500 rounds, and that'd be pushing it. The basic .300 WBY mag case is already overbore with anything under 190 grains. Then you move up to a load that takes at least 20 grains more powder for at best 150fps?

    I'd call it a barrel maker's dream come true!

    for sure will be a barrel burner at least, its basically a 300 rum with a la ackley shoulder for a 10% gain in case capacity, yes you can go up to extreme a use very hot loads with very short case life 2 no more than 3 loadings and get the velocity up, think the .300 Win Mag will always be the king. if you want something with more authority go to the .338rum or .338edge they mark a difference.
