Ok, heres a plan that crossed my mind today:

I love the FTX bullets, not just because they work in lever action rifles, but by virtue purely of their design and precision.

What if I loaded those up over a max charge of CFE BLK? According to Hodgdon, that delivered 1887 FPS from a 16″ barrel. Subtracting 200fps gives 1687, which appears to render 1000ft-lb+. As a bonus, they are designed to work at lower velocities, and the shape of the ogive will put it closer to the lands. I may have to try that!
