At this time I'm not asking for the componets, cause I havn't joined the group yet. That said.... what is the lowest psi (nitro powder) shell that has been created and used successfully? I have a set of barrels that are thin in the right tube, and not sure if they are salvageable. You may have followed the thread on gunshop.com "can this be fixed".
Thanks for any help in advance!
Cheers, battle

Depends on components. But 5500-6500 psi is achievable with certain powders and components..

Hi RWG,
Thanks I appreciate your help! I had thought they could be even lower? I think that will work in my sistutation if barrel are deemed good enough.
Thanks,

Battle, isn't the barrel in question, the one with the big dent in it? Confused
