    ive been toying with 8208 in 444 marlin with plain base bullets and have gotten to almost 1600 fps using clww and carnauba red lube sized to .432. I think 8208 is a very promising powder worth experimenting with but your going to want a gas checked...

    one problem I can think of. lets say you load 1000 rounds and didn't run the brass though sizing die. you get a new gun and it might be possible none of it will chamber. I guess im a simple sort of person and the sizing die is in the box for a...
