Re: 7.82 warbird

Is this by any chance the fella that sent the bottle opener/shooting tripod on the Pdog hunt?
As for data, 102gr of H1000 was warm, and 115.4gr of H50BMG was about max. Both broke 3150fps, and the accuracy award went to the H50BMG. When develping these loads I started at 94gr on the H1000 and 106gr on the BMG... of course, you know why I love those H powders Course now that hodgen has bought out IMR, 7828 might have made the list. You can get a bit more velocity with some of the other powders, but sacrifice temp stability... course, I don't think John Lazz cared about that... had to get that velocity number up for the advertisements!

    Does anyone know where to get the case dimensions of the Lazz cases? Might be interesting to see ...

    The warbird case volume as I understand it is only slightly less than a 30-378 Weatherby. So loading data for the Warbird is about 5 grains less than a 30-378 max load.

    I shoot the 30-378 and I've settled in on AA8700 for all 200 and up grain bullets. I thought that the 50BMG powder was too slow. I predominantly shoot sierra 200 spb. It's about the highest BC of the cheapest bullets. I shoot allot and I just can't justify the one dollar bullets unless I'm on the range and bragging rights are at stake.

    Looks like your going to talk to Kirby, I was going to suggest that. If I remember correctly his brother had one at one time and so he has worked with them. Good luck
