    I'm intersted in getting a big cased 30cal going , I'm courious as to what type of brass are you using and what quality is it?
    Also , what would be the heaviest bullet I could shoot out of this case in a 1-11.25 twist 28" barrel at about max load?

    The only brass I have used is Remington and I get at least 5 firings if I don't load too hot. I haven't started loading my 5 times fired cases yet so I don't know how many firings I'll get. I've lost a few to loose primer pockets with only 3 firings but that was my fault. I don't do any brass prep( other than trim and chamfer) or weigh my brass and my 300 Rum with a Kreiger barrel will shoot sub moa to 1000yds, if I do my part sometimes it's .5 moa.
    I would think that with the 11.25 twist the 210-220gr bullets would probably be the heaviest bullet you could get to stabilize.
