    From the 1:8 10 pistol, not the most accurate but hot ones are hard to handle recoil. Sitting at bench with SB front rest. 50 yds, all holes are round. Middle is 145gr hot.

    I have pics from Marlinowners site, no vid. 2 pins to punch on 2 piece FP. Older models have a one piece FP. Question is why?

    Ages ago in a far away galaxy ( maybe Tetons?) bears walked among us. On the paved path. IIRC they were browns & I think mama was teaching them how to panhandle. Have some family pics of them on top of cars, poking heads in windows, etc. Was told...

    Carpenter's pencil (one with the wide flat point) lubes best and you can remove the 'bumps' easily when the plate is hot. Use it as a scraper and lube. Changed over completely to the pencil method it works so well. Also try filling from alternate...

    2 1/2# is too light for me for anything. I put the happy trig in my 336 and that did make a big difference. Actually bushed trigger pin, EDM cut sear. I do like the floppy marlin trigger, takeup before the actual pressure - happy doesn't have that.

    AR10 39gr 4895 168gr GC PC ~ 80 yds, freezing weather prone. 310. 300 BO 1:10 carbine 145gr PB PC ~ 2100 fps. 3085. Both HT after PC, ~4% SB 0.5% Cu. Neither of My BO will take 310 sized. Seems to me harder alloy needs closer to bore sizing.

    Mark1 - what load. I have BO 1:10 18" carbine and push 142gr PB PCd to 2100 and get MOA. What alloy? IMHO 1:15 may be too slow.
