yep, this is the best you find

we had it to, http://forums.nitroexpress.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=239619&an=0&page=0#Post239619

the post war norma load make 579 m/sec with a 12,7 gramm/ 200 grains 8mm S roundnose. thats the maximum what could be safe in the rolling block or they made a higher load then. this was because the swedish hunting law asking for 2000 joule min. energie at 100 meter to hunt moose in this time and they want to use the rolling block because it was a common cheap farmer gun then.
you should be under this with your load.

With top-end loads, it should be producing in the neighbourhood of 28,000psi.

AR2219 / H322
BM2 / Benchmark
Bench Mark 8208 / 8208 XBR

AR2208 / Varget
AR2209 / H4350
AR2213H, AR2213SC / H4831 / H4831SC
AR2217 / H1000
AR2225 / Retumbo
