Replying to this again…Lord willing in a month or two I plan to pull the trigger on some hammers from George’s Shooting Shack, specifically the 223 grain (I think) shock hammer in .358 cal. I do plan to treat them with HBN along with the bore of my BRNO .358 Norma Magnum and see how fast we can get them hustling. Between the hammer design, the hbn benefits, and the fact that this particular rifle has a 27.75” barrel I bet we can get them to move! At Nathan Foster’s recommendation I’m gonna start with hodgdon superformance (also because it’s a powder i actually have moreI want to start a thread to discuss throat erosion as it relates to velocity. There has always been the thinking that the higher the velocity of a gun the faster the barrel will wear out. I think this thought comes from comparing slower cartridges to faster cartridges. Like comparing a 300...www.longrangehunting.com
This thread is worth reading.
My opinion is no. Velocity in of it self has little or no baring on barrel life.
Our drive band design has less contact in the barrel also resulting in less wear. My opinion,.
Than a pound of on hand and don’t need to find more).
I’ll be sure to send @GLTaylor my findings If this actually pans out and comes to pass, er shall see haha. Feel like something always comes up but that’s life, again, Lord willing!
