    Nope . The OM was a 500 gr RN 45-70-500 . The the Cavalry couldn't handle it so they got a reduced load for the carbines a 405 . 45-70-405 . That was still too much of a good thing so it got wadded down to a 45-65-405 . In the modern...

    I have and use CH , CH4D , Lyman , Herters , Lee , Pacific , Redding and RCBS . I can honestly say I can see , feel and touch the difference between Lee and RCBS . It's worth the $15-20 per set for the touch and feel . I don't have a Lyman set less...

    I have the last 4-5 lbs in a 12 lb keg of Unique lotted in 1969 that makes it 49 yr old . The sister 8lb can of Red Dot turned 50 last yr but there's only 3-4# of it left . Still goes bang , runs a little faster than data in most of my pistols .

    High velocity to flatten trajectory ......... No high BC to flatten trajectory . The Hornady and Barnes 300-350 gr bullets gain nothing for their shape with BCs of .18-19 . Yes you can run them hard but not really any harder than than a GC cast...

    I'm told they will take 40 kpsi in a steady diet . That generally means anything on the shelf jacketed or lead . For us it means gas check designs . I took the NOE version of the 458132 , 535 Postell , at a raging 1100 fps at 4,000 ft MSL it...

    I actually read the first 1800 posts in the now 4000+ HyTek thread . Probably it is the HyTek coating sticking to the barrel ..... There is a solvent that removes it but you'll have to sift through the first 10 or so pages of the HyTek thread for it...

    From the list 7×57 or 06' . The 7×57 will get you 90% of the numbers of the 06' and if you can get a slow twist barrel match the 06' with cast . The down side of the 7×57 is that 90% of the barrels and rifles are 8.5 or 9.5 twists where a 10.5...
