    I suspect that you would cast a tungsten sabot in the center of the bullet. How much powder? I can't touch that one. I reload 22lr. I'm used to using 1.6 to 2.6 grains of powder. That wouldn't QUITE be enough for this gun.

    Well if it is more like 8mm then the 8x68mm RWS round that I mentioned earlier is probably it.

    Well, Traff, you did throw me a bit with the dates considering the first rifle to officially break 4000 FPS didn’t occur for quite a while.

    All forgiveness given.. and thanks given for the chase!!

    That rifle is really a great design. If you look at it closely. Falling block with the straight back folding stock with the folding shoulder padding. Be a good design to copy for any high powered single shot.

    Details of the round
    The round originally had a steel core and a tiny capsule of tear gas. The round was to penetrate the armor of the tank and the tear gas to force out the occupants of the vehicle. The idea was impractical due to the core penetrating the armor and leaving the capsule outside. Later bullets used tungsten cores due to its better penetrating power.[5] The round also had a metal jacket. The official designation of the round was Patrone 318 SmK-Rs-L'spur or Patrone 318 SmKH -Rs-L'spur. SmK means "Spitzgeschoss mit Kern", which translates to 'pointed bullet with core'. (H) indicates the bullet has a tungsten-carbide core, (Rs) stands for "Reizstoff", which means tear gas, because the projectile contains a small capsule of tear gas. "L'spur" stands for tracer, indicating the bullet has a small tracer in its rear.[1]

    300 H&H might do it if you loaded it with a full case of bullseye and used a string to pull the trigger.
