    I don't think it is going to get you where you want to be with those calibers, unless your using the heaviest of bullets, and even then your not going to get much in velocity, but you will get plenty of cleaning time.

    I have tried it in my STW with some 160gr loads and also used some 860 I had. Both went boom, but neither one was even close to getting up to an ideal speed. Both were also really dirty at the loads I tried. Not to say it cannot be used, just that there are MUCH better choices to be had.
