I am looking forward to try the 8,5 mm KJG on driven boar in my .338-06 Ackley Improved. For your interest here is some information on how to form cartridges for this calibre. I more or less follow the advice given by George C. Nonte in his Home Guide to Cartridge Conversions, Stackpole Books 1967; a standard 30-06 case is primed with a large pistol primer and then charged with pistol powder, in my case 0,97 g of Bullseye. For over powder wad a quarter sheet of toilet tissue is then rammed down with a pencil. The case is filled up with some non-abrasive filler. I use flour for this and then seal the case with vaseline to avoid spilling the flour. Firing this in a 338-06 Ackley rifle will produce a perfectly formed cartridge case in that calibre. The only difference between this case and one fired with full power load is a slightly sharper shoulder on the latter but shoulder diametre is the same. While there is no bullet, the force of this charge can cause severe injury at very close range so one has to be careful.

be careful with Flour, as it may burn. Saw dust will not.
Thank you for your e-mail and advice. I should have known that you are just as familiar with this aspect of shooting as any other! In my loads for this .338-06 Ackley cartridge I have, until now, used 16,2 g Nosler Partitions on 3,69 g of VV160 and magnum primers. Should I also use magnum primers for the load you recommend for this cartridge/KJG ?

that Load was sick! Much too slow Powder. Sure Magnum Primers were right for the Vihtavuori N160, but just 3000 bre are not enough. Those were just 2/3 of the intended Pressure!
Around 4 g are the Powderamount from which You may start to use Magnum Primers. In This Case the fast burning Powders may not require it, but they are an Option. Which Powder will You load?
