    Did you ever think that heaviest bullets may be because the cavity it came from was ever so slightly larger??? It's pretty hard to cut multiple cavity mould exactly 100% the same. You know you're measuring in tenths of a grain so it doesn't take...

    He's talking about this post Tim Did you notice, in the 2nd test with the .308W the 23 good shots (with barrel fouled) using the “select” bullets the group average size is .697″! The velocity of that match load is 1980 fps. That says...

    I don't think it's much of problem with larger caliber that aren't overbore. Once shooting a Jap with a surplus duplex load i shot five shot and you could fry bacon on the barrel. The rifle was 65 degrees from being it a cool basement. I reloaded...

    If you are worried about pressure in your Garand you can buy a cheap piece of insurance by buying a Schuster valve from places like Midwayusa. Then you don't have to worry about such things as bending your op rod. I can tell you that 872 suplus...

    If your mould is out of alignment and you can move it fore and aft ,when it's closed and the handles are gripped firmly, then either the alignment pins aren't protruding enough, the female holes in the other block have are too large or a combination...

    You got it right BHjiu in that the rpm to ruin accuracy is so high that not only do we need not to worry about it, it doesn't make enough difference to care about. I'll lean towards a engineer schooled in the things that are needed to fully...

    From what I understand it's based on a modified 450 Bushmaster case which is turn was based off a 284 Win. The 30 RAR has a larger rim size then the 30-06/ 308 family. It's possible you could get those two other cases to work, don't know if...

    Forget that rpm thing. The velocity you picked as the most accurate pretty well may not be. To say it wouldn't shoot more accurate at a higher velocity is just not true.

    Popper I think, not sure, they may have changed the barrel nut. I know they changed the free float tubes. I'm not overly excited about dual ejectors. We know that spring loaded ejectors push the cartridge to one side of the chamber ALL THE TIME!! ...

    That's good they do. It's like cars, what is it, they have to make parts for 10 years? DPMS still has some of their older type AR10 stuff. I wish they would have standardized them meaning all the manufacturers. This is probably the reason...

    So I have always thought that the accuracy loss at too-high RPMs was a result of the boolit destabilizing. It sounds like I was basically attributing cause and effect improperly. The boolit will not destabilize when spun too fast, but accuracy is...

    Well DPMS kind of de-standardized their "old style DPMS" with their new Gen II. Have you looked at the differences?

    Didn't see what you'r using for frame material, but even thin gussets at frame joints will be a plus with very little added weight.
