Maybe this is why they that's the maximum load of 800X, because their data shows the pressure at 30,000 psi. This is also the pressure limit shown for 800X in other bullet weights as well. There's something going on there.
That's quite a nice first post
Unfortunately, with all the advances in medical science, there still just isnt any cure for "stupid".
