    Default Max Loads for 8 mm and 416 rem mag

    I have been helped by a friend to take these charges by using the quick load program. Me and my friend started to load these cartridges 3 gr below peak load. These charges are made on the Swift A-Frame and Wood Leigh bullets. I have test fired these charges also.

    As you can see we have only used the standard non-woven balls from Swift and Wood Leigh and no bullets from Barnes copper bullets (TSX). I have had et tsnack with a gunsmith here in Sweden and he says that copper bullets wear out a barrel faster than normal non-woven balls Swift, Wood Leigh, and others.


    Can I hear your arguments on this point of view on the copper bullets. Are There Any of you who Have Such experience???



    I hope you understand my translation from Swedish to English.

    No problems with your English translation, lsjonsson!

    I'm not a fan of the copper bullets, but even so I don't know of much to support the gunsmith's claim about extra barrel wear. Even if it was occuring, I wouldn't worry about it because none of us are going to shoot thousands of those expensive bullets. We'll use something else for practice and reserve the all-copper bullets for hunting only.
