Thats around the area of what im wondering. I want to know how far I can go with my reloads in my Taurus without damaging it. I probably wont reload near max but I just want to be on the safe side.Once SAAMI got around to rating the .454, they rated it at an incredible 65,000 PSI.
Most of the powder manufacturers show 50,000 -55,000 CUP/PSI max loads.
I'd be hesitant to go over 50,000 in anything but a Freedom Arms or a Magnum Research BFR, and even then I would keep it under 55K
Yeah, I wish they would use one or the other. In my researches, they often seem to imply that they are the same, or 'close enough' to being the same.don't confuse CUP and PSI, the methods of measurement are different.
