an antiquated old coot named Elmer Keith derided the term "maximum load" . he thought, rightly so i believe, they should have been termed "dangerous load". the most accurate loads are usually not the most powerful loads but usually moderate loads. of course i am speaking in broad very open terms. some powders are not intended to be used past a certain pressure threshold. for example 800x. imr says it is not to be used past 30,000psi. yet on other forms i see people loading 800x to significantly higher than 30 grand and BRAGGING about it. i am talking 15 and 20 percent and more higher. there are old reloaders and there are bold reloaders, but there are no old, bold reloaders. come on people we need to be careful . our numbers are too few. your pro 2d ammendment votes are desperately needed. please be careful reloading. remember it doesn't hurt to be humble.
