    The thing I remember being discussed the most were the 38 Special loads. One guy on THR or TFL, I think, said he literally blew a model 10 up. One thing that shocked me was the 70,000+ PSI pressure rating after they tested some of the loads. I...

    What Speer manual and page is the warning about the Speer 8 data on? I was trying to warn a guy about using the maximum loads, but he doesn't believe me. I thought it was in Speer 10, but I can't find it. Sent from my SM-A515U using Tapatalk

    I've always advised against using SPP's in rifle rounds. I know the safety rule, AND why it's a rule. Now I have to ask the question. I have some 300 Blk loads that develop around 30,000 psi. Will this be too much pressure for SPP's. I really would...
