    Thanks

    Thanks for the info. Might I ask where you got the info? I searched forever on the internet and couldn't find anything. I also looked in a number of books and magazines without any luck. Thanks again.

    No problem, I don't need much of an excuse to go looking up obscure cartridges. :) They're in Load From a Disk software.

    OK, I'll ask. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't know.

    What the hell are you guys talking about? :evil:

    Easy.

    They're looking for the case capacity, in grains of water, for the Lazzeroni series of proprietary ultra-velocity (and very overbore) rifle cartridges. That gives you an idea of how many grains of powder the cartridges will accept, sans bullet displacement.

    Similar powder-hopper overbore cartridges include the .300 Remington Ultra Mag and the big daddy, the .30-378 Weatherby Magnum.

    For an idea on how much powder is needed to feed these monsters, remember that one pound of smokeless powder is equivalent to 7000 grains. If you load one of the Lazzeroni rounds light, say around 100 grains, you'll get a whopping 70 rounds per pound of powder. :eek:

    Of course, the .50 BMG folks don't buy powder in single pound amounts. They're running on the order of 240 grains per round. ;)

    $100 per box of shells?:what:

    I thought shooting remington Hevi-shot was expensive at around $1 a shell.


    Have to add that to the list of things expensive to spend an hour with:

    2. Prostitute

    Hooooly cow! Thanks, that's very interesting stuff. I had never heard of that maker before.

    (I did know what the water was about, just didn't know what a Lazzeroni was)
