It is not an high pressure cartridge. I have shot them 4 times. May be time for annealing. Looks like will go beyond 10 reloads. If you hot load them I dont know. I dont load them over 2500 fps we with 600gr woodleigh. I am still using the same 10 pieces for load devolopment.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
