    I am going to say it's your lube at that speed. I had something very similar going on with my home brewed lube and the 7.62x54r, multiple groups on same target, 5th shot out every single time. I tried adding ATF helped, then paraffin and fliers went...

    Interesting colored wood, I can see a bit of striping in the butt. Looks as if stock has been refinished though? The one pictured on the Wiki link is just fantastic, tiger striped stem to stern!

    In my previous residence, I had installed a gas furnace and was impressed, so I did the same here a few years later. The first was plumbed with black iron and the next with a flexible line coated with a yellow plastic. I never got an ad suggesting...

    When I was a kid everyone had a cold and the major complaint was a week with a snotty nose. Now, it seems the nose drainage flows south and affects the throat and then the lungs for at least a week each and two trips to the Doc. Are colds worse or...

    I think these people should have to live with what they design. Maybe things would be more people friendly.

    You could try some 5-7 shot groups, maybe even more rounds would give a better picture. I see a typo in your data though you forgot the C in BL-C (2) or lot# 2 however your canister is marked. Have fun and enjoy, even if you are using those danged...

    Many punched flash holes have a burr inside the case. Drilling removes it, and eliminates yet another variable which is very important with light or heavy loads.

    My experience with after market add on accessories is dismal. Most are cheaply made at exorbitant prices and have a history of less than a years service before failure. Even the factory installed ones don't seem to last, but then YMMV. I'm...

    With all the smart vehicle technology why can't they make all cars with the ability of a remote starter? At my age that's a useful extra on just a few currently. The only time I had a vehicle broken in to was after an officer insisted I lock it...

    In revolvers and ESPECIALLY in rifles, the 180 grain bullets make the 357 Magnum into a real game-taker. Such a good, useful caliber.

    That is one strange looking piece of brass! I made a belted rimless rifle cartridge casing a couple of times, not on purpose though. Glad the casing didn't let go and nothing/nobody got hurt.

    It is encouraging to see Colt trying to stay in the game. I really like the concept--6 shot, 3" barrel, 28-oz package in 357 Magnum. If good quality is there, I will buy one.
