    After much meditation and contemplation and against all the advice to the contrary i duplexed trailboss on my 270 wsm and not only survive but thrived.
    One thing that always bugged me with my 270 wsm had been the difficulty in running accurate mild loads. Part of the problem is the huge space left behind that does no good with accuracy and i hate the mess left with various fillers.
    Trailboss on its own has been very well documented with wsm chamberings, but there is a limit you can go with trailboss on its own and as far as i could tell no one had tried a duplex loading.
    Mind you my first night before going to the range to try the load was filled with nightmares of my beloved Winchester blowing up.
    I have tried a dozen combinations now and any one interested in the concept is welcome to enquire.

    Surviving it and recommending it are two different things. :)

    I see no reason that you should not share your experiences with others, but I will caution everyone involved that the loads under discussion are not tested nor validated by any entity capable of determining if they're safe or are a lurking disaster just waitin' for the right conditions.

    Yep. Uncharted territory should be traveled very carefully.

    A bad idea

    king9 - -
    You've clearly already been warned against this practice in the past, but, it's your gun, your eyes, your - - - well, you get the drift. Be advised that this extremely hazardous practice is well outside the pale here on THR. I'll leave your initial announcement up, mainly as a caution to others.

    Please DO NOT favor us with any additional details about your duplex loads. Normally, even loads grossly above published values may be posted here, so long as the required cautions are included. This is not the case with mutiplex loads and mixed powder loads.

    I'm not trying to tell any adult what he must or must not do with his own gear. As a THR Staffer, I will exercise some restraint to what is posted on this forum.

    A paraphrase seems to be in order here:

    "There are old Handloaders and there bold Handloaders - but there are no old, bold, Handloaders".

    You know how it goes .......... a lost eye here, a severed finger there - pretty soon it's hard to handload anymore!
