    Anybody know the psi of the 3 dram loads? Briefly looked on the internet and nothing showed.

    Thanks,

    Remington isn't saying.

    Wouldn't matter much because you can't buy the powder they use anyway and PSI has nothing to do with recoil.

    Rod, we have been told on this forum, by a Remington manager, the custom powder used in their Light Target (2 3/4 dram) and Light Handicap (3 dram) burns at Red Dot speeds. So figure the Light Handicap, 1200fps produces about 10,100PSI.

    Curious why you ask, because the answer is, it is less than SAAMI limits, and it otherwise doesn't matter.

    But its probably close to what zzt says.

    I believe Neil has the strain guage and accompanying paraphernalia.

    If you be nice to him he might have answers.
