    I'm using a 22 inch barrel. I'll be happy with 1300 fps. I loaded up about 20 with 30 grains of 4198. Loaded a few stouter with 41 grains. May try some 3031 in some. Going to ladder up in 2 grain increments on the 4198 and go from 30 to 40 grains....

    Bringing sharks or moray eels onto your boat is like sharing a campfire with sidewinders. To each his own.

    If you start with the (you name it) will harm you, and work backward from there, you can almost prove anything. Politicians are famous for it. BTW I had two dogs with all the trimmings for lunch. It's the greasy chili that will kill ya.

    Right now I've been using 43.5 grains of 4198. Longest shot in mountain area around 125-150 yards in our Northern zone. Southern zone maybe 75-400 yards but I use 7-08 and 7 mag for that hunting. A 300 grain mold would have been ideal but I wanted...

    It was ported. I sold it years ago. Just a 22 inch Remlin now. That's one gun I wish I had never let go. Lesson learned. Been bidding on one on gunbroker got another week left.

    I've got to load and chronograph some this weekend. I've got plenty of 4198-3031-2400-unique -4895--Varget. I'm thinking same thing at around 1200 to 1400 fps max will do sufficient for anything here. I took a Fallow deer several,,many years ago...

    I am casting out some 396 grain 45-70 with gas checks and am thinking of using H4198 as a go to load. I had went mid range to max on it and kind of a bruiser out of the Marlin Guide gun for a woman my size. I am going to be deer hunting and...

    My first rifle purchased was a 552 BDL. I never found ammo that it preferred or despised. I just cleaned it and gifted it to my eldest granddaughter.

    Never for short term gains but purchasing 5-10 oz on a regular basis as long as its falling is wise. Eventually it will be profitable regardless and a wind fall is always possible. It's a poor mans stock market and more fun then a piggy bank.

    Remember to occasionally add water to check for float switch failure and restricted pipes. That's a surprise you don't need. It's easier to fix in the dry than under water.

    The part of the extractor that folds down over the face of the bolt is the CLAW on a claw extractor, the bevel is the bottom edge of that claw that slips into the extractor groove of the cartridge, notice the shape, very very little at a time.

    I've done a couple from BLANKS and they needed extra work to be 100% To tight or not enough rounded off on lower corner, feeding issue, too loose and you are screwed, it can jump the extractor over the rim and you can run it like a push feed, not...

    Look directly at the face of the extractor, head on if you will, you will see the bevel on the edge of the extractor. That bevel is what slips into the extractor groove on the cartridge. After you get the extractor to fit down in to the groove in...

    This is the best I can do with cell phone. Bolt is in same position as your picture, no cartridge under claw as yours, note the extractor to bolt interface, that is what it should look like. I hope this helps you

    Yes and then the bevel on the claw to cartridge head, the cartridge should slip under the extractor with enough force to hold the cartridge in place-CRF. make sure the collar wraps around the groove in the bolt as a slip fit also, especially if...

    Maybe this will help, maybe not:-) cell phone pictures not too good. SR extractor on bolt and with cartridge under extractor lip. You may have the wrong extractor or one that has never been fit, maybe even an extractor collar that is wrong?
