    Just received mine the SN is 600+ earlier than listed. I went for the 54 and I would think that the 50cal would be more popular. Bob

    The way I understand it the powder measures are set up for 2F powder so 33gr would be about right for the denser powders like Swiss and OE. Personally I have never fooled with T-7. Back when I was guiding elk hunters in NM, I had a hunter take an...

    Somehow I never heard of this dealer, but those rollers sold out pretty quick at those prices. I'd like to have one of the 12X44s in centerfire. Bob

    My thoughts as well but I got an excellent price on this one and it has grown on me after re-barreling and new wood. Bob

    I'm not that worried about it. This is my down time and a good time to have a project. Several years ago I had to put a finishing shot on a ML deer and it would have been nice to have a powerful back up. My hunting partner was surprised to hear a...

    I got one 12 or so years ago and it actually shot pretty good in the 8MM chambering, but I converted it to 40-65. I wish I had a good use for the barrel and parts left over. Bo

    You might want to stick with the 1" if you have plenty of them, just easier to do the smaller stuff. Bob

    A little late but I've had good luck with OE2F and the Postel, 68gr for mid range and 76 for LR. Bob

    A chamber cut not concentric to the bore, big time. The pilot must have been way undersized.

    I sure like it, but then I only use it properly.:drinks:Since when would 24 gr of IMR 4198 and 3/4 gr of fluffed up dacron be improper use, cause that is the load depositing melted dacron on the case necks of 8mm.

    ^^^^^^ This sounds like it could be the problem, barrel constriction at the threads, especially if you can shoot this load and doesn't lead in your rifle.

    Oh ya it can and does melt upon firing, I find it often melted around the very end of the neck, hard and can be scraped off by fingernail. Most recently with 24.0 Grs IMR 4198 and .8 gr dacron. I have never used dacron with any powders with a burn...

    I have found it burned around the very end of the neck, and yes I have had it blow back into my face when shooting into the wind, so I don't think it is all consumed, but most times no not on the ground in front of the bench.

    swheeler replied to a thread Fillers...? in Single Shot Guns
    Absolutely the base of the bullet has to make the trip from the expanding neck then through the throat and finally engraved by the rifling, so once inside the bore if no blow by of gases of course there will not be leading, we're talking about what...

    Yes that is what I stated, pressure up-velocity up. My thought is dacron is doing something similar too BPI buffer but without all the friction in case transition from body to neck. I think it is sealing the bore, kind of a gas check under the gas...

    Like I say, I think it has to do with the powder itself, ie harder to ignite ball powders v easier to ignite ball or extruded. Now I never said all ball powders or all extruded powders, heck there are ball powders with NO deterrent coating. I don't...

    OK but what is increasing the velocity, it has to be pressure increase, that's how it works increase pressure increase velocity. The not enough "mass" argument doesn't work for me simply because PSB or BPI ORG to be more exact rivals dacron for...
