I worked up a load (as recommended in Bob Hagel's book on practical ballistics for the N. American Hunter) which was on the upper end of the charts. Actually, exceeding the charts and managed to blow primers and seize the bolt on a Remington 788 .223. I worked up the load in the winter and shot in July using W748 powder. I'll never do that again.
