    I just purchased a CZ75 Tactical Sport Orange. That is the finest out of the box pistol I have ever seen or handled.

    I don't have a 455 so I can not comment on them. I do have 452's and 453's. Between the two I prefer the 452. I don't care for the set trigger on the 453. The stock 452 trigger becomes a thing of beauty with the YoDave trigger kit...

    Yes the rifle has been fed a steady diet of 170ish boolits and some factory fodder and taken beer and varmints with reduced loads and I never had an issue like this before.

    In a centerfire cartridge firearm the bullet is seated long with almost no neck tension. The bullet pushes back into the case when it contacts the lead angle. I don't know if any lead bullet shooter do this, but, it is fairly common for BPCR...

    This will be done ; and as I already have some of these measurements; it should be easy. For sure my boolits are .311, that is fact known and measured. Thank you for the nice write up and as I have some 44 cal balls that’s what I’ll use.

    In a 45/70 with jacketed or when soft seating not much of an accuracy benefit, however, with lead bullet for my BPCR's I find significant benefit to anneal.

    The 30 BR is a great chambering, however, its top end pressures are over anything safe in a Contender. It would be a great choice in an Encore.
