The latest build, a bull barreled H&R chambered in 30X357 Maximum!

This gun was built for a customer, so I did not get to do a load development on it. I did however get the customers permission to shoot a couple of rounds through it, over the chronograph, and velocity was quite interesting to say the least! I only shot 3-shot groups, but I did come up with these velocity figures -

Sierra 110 gr. Hollow Point - 2,800 fps.

Nosler 125 gr. Ballistic Tip - 2,762 fps.

Hornady 155 gr. A-MAX - 2,618 fps.

I thought those figures were not bad at all for a cartridge of this size. Also, none of the loads showed and signs of pressure, and I believe I could have gotten a little bit more speed out of each of the bullets tested. And, out of respect for the customer, I feel that I did not have the right to push the loads to the max, because this is not my gun!

I just thought that a couple of you guys might like to see another gun picture. Smile

Now that looks damn fine indeed mate. I've never been a lover of laminated stocks, but I must admit, that one looks good.

This calibre has me intrigued and looks very interesting, so much so that I am wondering if it would be useful in my lineup of rifles.

very very tidy work as always mate...and I for one just love "plywood" stocks
those velocities arent to be sniffed at thats for sure. bet that middle load will be a winner on deer sized game and will be devistating on anything smaller.

Thanks guys, glad you like the rifle...

Way beyond a 300 BO. Does a 16" .308 do much better?

I have never shot a 16" 308 but I have shot a couple of 14" barrels in 308 Winchester, and no, they did not do any better. The only thing they did offer was a LOT MORE muzzle blast and recoil!

Maybe I missed it somewhere but...

I can see the performance difference in the 30x357 mag and the 30x357 MAX, but what are the differences in the actual cartridges?

you should be able to poke 125grn loads out of .308 at over 3000fps and 110s up to 3300fps thats data from 60cm barrel...24" give or take.
data from nick harvey manual.

hunterjoe21,

the difference between the 2 cartridges is in case length. The 357 magnum is 1.290" long and the 357 Maximum is 1.605" long...
