Riss... For an extended discussion of this topic you might see if you can find a copy of Phil Sharpes' Handloading manual in the library. Though it was written in the thirties, and the last revision I'm aware of was in the early fifties, much of the data is still applicable. The graphite which Doc Lisenby mentions is usually used in a colloidal form, i.e. it is much finer than hardware store graphite. It is still available from the Acheson Chemical Company Sharpe mentioned. I've been to 4800 fps in a 244H&H Magnum shooting 55 grain Noslers using the Sharpe #2 wads, and seen no ill effects on a tool steel barrel. Pressures as registered on my Oehler M43 were exceptionally stable
