    I was reading you liked 120gr 7mm (in 7mm-08) for instant deer kills,,,, Which bullet (brand, model) do you use? thanks!

    I use the 120 grain Ballistic tip with H414 powder, CCI Br2 primer ata muzzle velocity of 3010 ft/sec. the second best load is the same except I use Varget for a little more velocity.

    The 7/08 needs a muzzle velocity of 3000 ft/sec+ to help the bullets perform. I have used this load up to 500+ yards with 100% success.

    I was just wondering, I built a custom 7-08 & found to my surprise best accuracy with Fed premium with nosler partition bullet..(under 1/2 moa). I shot a couple of deer with it & exit wound was bigger than a coffee cup.! It's amazing how far a big whitetail can run with no heart & very little lung. Thanks for the load info! Kirk
    Thanks for your response to my “manuals” post. An aside question - what source do you use for beginning loads for wildcat cartridges?

    I normally start with the parent case loads and use the increase in case capacity to find a starting loads Based on the design.

    It sounds simple, but you have to stay away from Squib loads. Often I will use a lighter bullet with the powder charge for heavier bullets to hold pressures down. I consider 90% case density a good starting point.

    Hello, not trying to bug you or anything, just wanted to tell you I have learned the most from you on the forum by far. You explain things in a way that's easy to understand. I came to forum for reloading and shooting knowledge / information and many know quite a lot on here, but few can impart it to others....You can. Thanks Dave

    Thanks, !
    I see many post that people just state that It is "The only way" or It is not necessary, and don't give an explanation of why.
    I just try to explain why I do things the way I do so people can at least see the reasoning why and chose the method they like.

    If some think I'm crazy, Ok, It is what has worked best for me.

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    Good Morning Sir, I saw that you rebarreled a micro medallion in 22 hornet. What barrel did you use for that? I have one that needs the same treatment. Thanks
    JE, I saw you posting on the 460 S&W round, did you come up with a round you liked? What barrel length are you using? An odd question, could a 460 S&w be built on a remington short action?

    I ended up liking the 250 ftx and the 300 grain XTP Magnum For the 454 Casull. Both are .452 diameter and for higher velocity.

    My 460 rifle Is built on a short action 700 Remington and has a 1 in 15 twist Lilja barrel. It is also a single shot.

    The barrel is 22" and will produce an amazing 2900 ft/sec+ with the 200 grain factory Hornady loads. (I have yet to chronograph the 250 and 300 grain loads )

    I thought a 460 case wouldn't eject? I may try it in an Encore, 22" huh. Is that max in your opinion? I'd think a 45-70 would beat it in a rifle?

    The Encore is the easiest way to go and i plane to build one on an encore with a 26" barrel to find the maximum velocity

    Factory loads won't/cant compete because of the older rifles they load for but loaded for/in the modern rifles the only limitation is the case strength it's self.

    I don't think that they will stand the 55,000 to 60,000 Psi that the 460 is designed for so all the votes are not in yet.

    Hello Sir,
    I am attempting load development using the Low Es/SD numbers first, then will shoot for groups while adjusting seating depth. I was wondering if you would be willing to take a look at my first set of data from over the weekend and verify that my next loads to try are on par with what you see as well.
    Thank you very much. If willing, I can email or text information to you. Whatever is easiest for you.
    Nick
