Thread: the hottest load on the site?

  1. #1

    the hottest load on the site?

    just wondering who shoots the hottest load on the site?

    anyone going to put their head above the parapet and start the ball rolling?

    post should include calibre, bullet and achieved velocity

    Define Hottest?

    Do you mean highest pressure, most likely to be dangerous, inadvisable for others to attempt to replicate... or what?

    7MM wsm 100 Grain hollow point 3,500 - 3,650 ....... 40 Grain Nosler BT .224 cal 3,700 - 3,800 ish, no real point pushing any harder , just for deliberate ruination as opposed to useful velocity.

    just fastest per calibre/weight

    I had a 100gr Hornady 6.5mm SP at over 3300 in the 260. Load was under book max, but I thought it was a disaster waiting to happen. I backed of about 1.5gr and I was still getting around 3250.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    My F class rifle in a 7mm WSM variant sends a 180grain Berger downrange at 3180 fps - (I'm on with re-barrelling it now- just over 1100 rounds untill its toast)

    The 338 LM sends a 250 SMK downrange at a shade under 3000 fps.

    I'm on with a build (for myself) which will send a 370g solid downrange at 3200 fps.


    Hasten to add that all the above (except the 375 CT load - which is predicted) are tried and tested in UK temps, show no excessive pressure signs and are safe in my own rifles.

    That would leave a place for a scab

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.
