home Forums – The GUN Forum Max pressure for Sporterized Gewher 98 in .270 win?

    I have an old Turkish Gew. 98, large ring action, that’s been sporterized and is chambered in .270 win.
    I am just getting started reloading and am mostly interested in accuracy loads for my bolt action rifles. I am curious how I would determine a max safe pressure for this rifle. The typical factory load for .270 win. is already more pressure than my reloading manual’s max safe pressure for the original 7.92x57mm. Is there any reliable information to determine what the action can handle? I’m not too worried about the barrel since that is made for .270. Or is there an approach I can use to make an educated decision?
    Thanks for the help.
