Reloaders nest

Has anybody seen this site, Ok dumb question but who operates this thing some of the loads I have looked at on this site seem very wrong. Like a 300gn 454casull producing 2010fps I have been shooting one of these for quiet a while and really don't think so, any comments???

Re: Reloaders nest

All the web sites' with pages about reloading have some (several?) listed loads quite aways above the safe and sane level. Including this one. I think it's a speed and power ego trip folks get on; they want all the muzzle velocity, flat trajectory or muzzle energy they can get from a given cartridge. It doesn't matter to them that they only get 3 or 4 firings per case. I asked a technician at SAAMI about this some time ago and he agreed with me; if you don't get at least 10 firings per case, you're doing something unsafe.

Re: Reloaders nest

The original Casull load for the Freedom Arms revolver was spec'd at 300 grain bullets at 2300 feet per second. Was advertised to have more muzzle energy than a 30-06. I bet that round was pretty snappy in a 5" gun. If you tried that in a Raging Bull I'm thinking it may come apart.

I know the freedom arms guns are very well built and to do this in a Taurus which is not a top of the line gun is just nuts. I think 2300 is pretty crazy in any gun I shoot mine at 1590 with a 300gn sierra and that is enough. The last thing I want is to blow a gun up just so I can say mines the fastest. OH well
