7.82 warbird

Yeah , I know [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img],

But , hey! it's not mine [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] A friend of mine bought into the " hyper " velocity hype, then went out and bought a sako actioned Lazzeroni warbird , and no , he didn't ask what I thought about it so I had no opportunity to give him my million dollars worth ( in this case , I think the inflated value of my advice is spot on [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] )

So, now what does he want me to do ?.................exactly ! reload for the monstrosity [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. Case trimming ,what am I going to do? I cant find a file to trim die and my Wilson case trimmer does not have a case holder listed for it . I tried contacting Wilson today but I expect they are off till after the new year.

I would appreciate any loading info as regards load data or tools . BTW, he really is not a bad guy cause when he asked me to load / develop a load for it he brought me a brand new 35P with the works and said " here I know you've been wanting one of these [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Thanks for any help you can give , may the Lord of Light shine on your hearts in this coming year .

    HeYYY !!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I want one of them laughing guys , how do you do it ? Yes , you did owe me one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] now youre paid in full.

    Step one of this " project " was really encouraging . When I deprimed the first batch of once fired brass the primers practically fell out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Don't figure to get much run with factory loaded brass as they are loaded to max pressures . Will proabably get some new brass as well.

    I have had some emails giving some load data but so far only with the lighter bullets . I want to develop a load using the 200 gr Accubond . Hope someone out there has a starting point for the heavier bullets . I will post results as I obtain them, right now am waiting on backordered everything, from dies to bullets .

    Jim

    Re: 7.82 warbird

    Thanks Sam, I appreciate the help. I saw those loading suggestions at the Lazz site . The 200 gr bullet data is for a partition , reckon it would be kosher to start with the suggested minimum if I use a Accubond ? I don't know how the two bullets compare as to bearing surface .

    Thanks again , Jim

    If you talk to Lazz they will tell you to start with the lower load data for the 200 Nosler and work up.

    So you are correct!

    Good Luck!
