I was looking through the Hodgdon annual reloading pubication yesterday, and all (at present) short magnums are listed. I developed a concern about the possibility of overloading during reloading. The manual lists pressures for each load. The frightening part is all of these loads are in the 65,000 pressure range. "Blue Pill" or test loads usually have a pressure around 70,000. If a reloader changes a component or hits on the high side of a powder measure what's to happen.
It is important to develop new cartridges and the equipment to handle them, but errors could be devastating as pressure increases.
