    Also something to think about, when you pull a bullet the crimp scrapes and digs into the sides of the bullet. When you fire a bullet, the pressure expands/balloons the case. From what I've read, the release of the bullet from the case with even a...

    Some claim that Jewel triggers aren't the best for a hunting trigger as they don't tolerate dusty, dirty conditions. I had a jewel on my 7saum for 5 years and swapped it this past year for a shilen. I had no problems with my jewel trigger. One...

    Timney is good, especially their Calvin Elite, though it is more expensive. My favorite, though, is Shilen for about $145.

    I have shot a few hogs with the deep hollowpoint 311410, but they were subsonic. They retained most of there mass after hitting bone, but did open up very well at 1000fps. Alloy was air cooled range scrap, about 10-11 bhn

    I have seen them out of stock at different times in the past years. Not sure why. I don't see them as a high volume sell. There was a post to a Frankford copy of the Co-Ax that might be available or available soon. I think it had a good review,...

    If you wanted to reload and use jacketed bullets the speer 110 grain JHP loaded to 1200 fps would really be a great round for yotes with a lot of "pop" with contact. I load them to 1000fps in the blackout. The speer 110 is the M1 carbine...

    Start with a new firing pin spring and possibly a new firing pin. I'm not seeing excess pressure with some of the pierced primer loads, more of a poor/sloppy finding pin fit in the bolt face. That is a known cause of cratered primers in normal...

    Do you have an ultrasonic cleaner? I'd pull the trigger out and put it in an ultrasonic bath of detergent and water, then blow it out and maybe re-bath it with solvent, blow out and rinse with naphtha or lighter fluid.

    I see that now. Kind of glossed over the first part and picked up where you talked about differences between the two conditions.

    I think that a 100 yard run is going to be pretty standard with a double lung shot with any boolit running in the 1700 fps range. If you want more shock with that slow of a boolit , break the shoulder(s) down.

    Just saying, that to the uninformed, a lighter shade/coloring of brass could be from something other than a case head separation. I have had case separations and stretched cases on some 300 BO brass recently. The shiny rings on th cases aren't...

    Also, if you carry your ammo/cases in plastic Berrys or Midway cartridge boxes, be mindful of the ring left by the cartridge box. The vibration of the empty cases in the box (case head up) will leave a shiny ring on the side of the case and look...

    I use both. Like most here, I use Imperial for small, one off sizing jobs and One Shot for bulk sizing of rifle cases. I spray inside a gallon ziplock bag. It greatly reduces the amount used vs the coverage. I do also mist the pistol brass to...

    Very nice job... How do you install the threaded cups? I drill and tap and use acraglass gel to lock the cups in place. What thread pitch did you make these?

    I see that high plains brass do not appear to be neck turned or reamed. I'd measure a fired case out of your chamber to make sure the fired neck diameter is at least 0.2022", preferably 0.2032" or larger for proper bullet release.

    They work, but dont give the best suppression for any platform. Dedicated caliber cans will always provide the best/most sound reduction.
