re: your QL data (info?) of 12gr of 800-X for a Nosler 240gr JSP (one of my old favorites, BTW), Hodgdons shows a "null" (?) START load and then a MAX of 14.2 for 800-X @ 1415fps with 39,600cup, the highest pressure shown using a 240gr Nosler JHP. From a reloading standpoint I don't think the bullet design should matter...?

This was also @ 1.600" vs your 1.580": I don't see how +2.2gr & -0.020" jibes with the QL data (info?). It would certainly still be a HEAVY LOAD, none the less.

Cheers!

P.S. Hogdons 23gr START load of 296 gets you there with a whole Hades of a lot less pressure! And that's from an 8.275" barrel: that 240gr @ 1400 fps from a pistol should relate to considerably more from a rifle/carbine.
