Here鈥檚 what ya need to try...
135 gr GD over a decent load of SR4756.......
One of our security guys about 30 years ago handed me some and told me to try it.
Holy crap! Seriously....holy crap!
Tell me that鈥檚 not a load to be reckoned with........馃挜馃挜
The problem is, SR4756 is no longer made.

Most of us are fully aware of that.
There are still some people that have it.
If anybody can come up with it, USMM can....

But what we REALLY need is 8 lbs. of primers
You got my curiosity up there Oldfut. So I went and made a hillbilly survey. A thousand Federal large rifle primers weighs according to my scale one lb. six ounces. This surprised me a bit. On the other end of what I surveyed a thousand round box of Remington 1.1/5 small pistol primers came in at a shade over 12 ounces. This did not surprise me. So yes eight lb. of primers is a welcome sight on any account, packaging notwithstanding.

馃槅 Dump out all the SPP and give us a weight!
Six months ago, we may have been approaching the value of gold! Not really, but something to think about from a future investment standpoint.

I am going to dump out all of my primers large and small to get an aggregate. weight and count. Try to figure out how many to a metric ton.
