    vzerone replied to a thread Hollowpoint failure in Cast Boolits
    I think many have the wrong idea of how a cast hollow point should work from a pistol/revolver for the bigger game such as deer. You want that hollow point to open and mushroom only after it has initially entered the body right upon entering the...

    Try fitting the offending round base first into the headspace gage. That will help id where the problem is and how to fix it. I learned that doing 5.56 mil brass that apparently had been fired in a very generous chamber.

    Why would a five groove be any different? They drill the hole, ream it and hone it and that's your bore. So it would have the same bore as 4/6/etc groove barrels. Micro Groove is slightly different. All you need is a V block to use with you mic...

    The problem with automated readers is, they are always right, even when they are wrong. There is no sensible reading human to thoughtfully correct an error. Those bar codes are fool proof when they are correct, but all it takes to screw them up is...
