    Why not get some powder coated boolits? I was shooting some 158gr rnfp to over 1700fps in my '92 clone, with good results.

    Have some 245gr boolits that are powder coated I would like to run about 1800 fps. Any recommendations on powder/charge. Searching, I came up with a load of 26gr 4759/tuff dacron but anyone have any other suggestions. Have decent...

    Ok I missed that they are powder coated, try heat treating them. It seems strange that only one out of every five does it though, but with mine as a lube problem it was the 5th shot always not random.

    How about barrel/cylinder gap? Friend of mine bought a gp100 that did the same. He called Ruger and he ended up sending it back. IIRC the cylinder/barrel gap was about .002" less

    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!

    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...

    Been using a plastic headed mallet for last 30 years or so. Used to use the wooden mallet then a plastic one that a friend turned out of materlial like a cutting board. Making a mallet out of Bois 'd Arc would be quite a mallet!!

    Used a propane torch to heat the spout. Very slow drip. After I emptied the pot and refilled with known alloy, still had to clear the spout and all is well now. Sent samples for testing to BNE. Maybe we can figure out the mystery. I’ll post results...

    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.

    Donít forget Promo. Same powder as red dot, different density, so watch your weight. Less cost.

    I think I shaved a few ounces off by changing out scopes, the Burris seems lighter than the Bushnell. The weight doesn't really bother too much unless gaining elevation, going from 3500 to 6500 every ounce counts, setting in the safe none of my...

    I remember these and Ranger Rick, pretty sure someone at Accurate Reloading Forum was shooting these out of the Lott at 1900 fps, seems like H335 or AA 2230 powder was used.
