Guess the caliber/cartridge

Bullet DKT SP
BulletWeight 1000 grs
Powder Alliant Reloader 15
PowderWeight 180 grs
Primer Federal 215
Brass Make Searcy
Barrel Length 23.2 (inches)
Velocity 2052 fps
Comment 2 grains of Bullseye as "igniter"

Energy 9330 ft-lbs
TKO 205.2
OGW 12961 lbs
IPSC PF 2052

I was looking up some load data and found this. I thought it was kind of interesting because the powder charge weighs more than the bullets I normally shoot.

R15 seems too fast a powder for that big a charge, so I'll guess one of the monsters. 700 something or another?

Yeah, I think 700 Nitro Express would be a good guess.

Wow!! Didnt take you guys very long. I thought maybe I would at least stump someone. 700NE is correct. Those things are like a hand held howitzer.

So how would one keep the igniter charge where it needs to be?

I imagine the mountain of R15 on top of it turns it into a diamond.

I wish I had a friend who owned one or could afford one. I dont have any use for one, but it would be nice to pull the trigger at least once. Biggest rifle I own is a 30-06.

Compressed load with a good crimp.
