    Is there a company that can pressure test reloads? Seems to me I saw this here before but could not locate with a search.

    I use the George method. Here George, try this one. If his gun doesn't blow up I know that it's safe.

    Search for Tom Armbrust. He tested alot of steel trap loads for our club.

    I've discovered you can ask a powder mfr to test a load for you because they're interested in the business.

    Tom Armbrust in McHenry IL, has done any number of shell tests for our club. Last I recall, it was $5/shell, 5 shells/test minimum. do a search and you should come up with his name.

    regards all,

    I think a guy by the name of Neil Winston does pressure testing.

    HP White Laboratories can do it as well. They might be a bit more expensive.
