Testing stick powders in NEF, short version of our
case/. Using 600 gr hardened slugs. Got 1700 fps
with 215 gr of RL-25. Cases eject easy.Gun roars,
but is working good...Still tight.Ed

Testing Savage with long case-Got 2550 with
320gr WC-855H special ball.730 gr slug.
Same slug,
300gr of RL-25 got 2400. 300 gr of RL-22
got 2800. 280 gr of W-760 ball got 2900.
Will hold more 760, but pressures around 40k on last
two loads mentioned.Savage extracts easy,
bellers like a tank gun.Ed

Been asked about 3 inch versions of our case. I don't have
any to spare. Just the few I am testing NEF with.
But box of ten is only $60 plus shipping from
Rocky Mtn Cartridge, with thick bases and set up for
3 inch chambers.Ed

We are getting a big ole replica of a 12ga 1887 levergun to
test our case on. It is of modern forged steel, heatreated
steel, good for high pressures. Ed

We got recoil now-Got a 1050 gr
Bridger over 2200 fps in the Savage.
I took the hollow base 750 gr Bridgers
made for me, and wedged in .500 caliber
slugs(I took out of 12ga sabot)in the base.
Added 300 gr. I was going to melt lead and put in,
but this was easier about 5 seconds,
after 15 seconds shortening nose on grinder
of .500 slug.Ed

Rob shot a few 1000 grain Bridgers at 3250 fps
and he said he couldn't go any higher as recoil
was "severe". His Borchardt is 24 lbs, and can take
any pressure you could load for it and still
hang on. Cartridges of this size really gets
the juices flowing at over 23,000 ft lbs..Ed

Doing more research at someones suggestion on the
Saiga-12 shotgun. It has strong rotary bolt, and alloy
barrel. Has 3 inch chamber and shortened version of our
case should allow velocities like I get with NEF or
better. Loading brass cases you would have to crimp
slugs good so no sharp corner interferes with
feeding.Ed[/align]

First tests with the 1887 got 600 gr hardened slug out over
1600, Good for a too short of a barrel. We will rig up
one with a long barrel. Gun is good quality,handles nice,
good value for the dollar. Ed.
