    I have put together data from the many shooters that emailed/PM'd me. Here is what I have so far but I am still asking for more data to be PM'd to me so I can continue to add to this.
    Thanks to everyone who contributed to this.
    As always this data is for specific rifles and should be worked up to find what is safe in your rifle.

    Its new so hasn't been posted yet but so far, mostly max tests have been made with various powders. Velocities are reaching 3350'+ with H1000, RL26, Retumbo, N570 and the like. I think someone had a promising PRS load with a moderate charge of H1000 around 3175'. It looks like it should run within pressure constraints pretty well at 3300' with most slow powders, and Im sure there are faster powders that could be used in competition loads below 3200'.

    We'll have 25 sst head stamped brass in May with the next run. 7sst and 338 SS will also be added at that time.
