    In modern gun..Use one less wad, replace with powder, might punch hole through plate.


    Here is picture of the bolt from the experimental action,

    with our 416 HSM case in it. Note the amount of the

    base size of locking lugs, the amount of area on the bolt..





    Here is link to guy doing special 585 HE in the EU,

    Good pictures............www.585he.cz

    We tested intermediate action with a 700HE barrel we had here.

    Just temporary to test strength. 1000 gr over 3100..

    Action worked fine.. Ed.

    Ed,

    Does your 700 Hubel Express fire a 0.729” Bullet?

    I’m making 0.729 jacketed bullets and want to find a test bed or two.

    I’ve seen reference to a 729 Jongman. Seems like a rimless 12gaFH.

    Looking forward to your response.
