    Yup. The Creedmoor, Hunting got in the way. We were there only long enough to shoot the 3P. Yes, I like to hard seat bullets about 0.050 to 0.100" depending on the chamber and bullet design.

    Hey kokomokid, all, Food for thought... Necksized and expanded (if needed) cases Maybe, could be, how you choose the bullet, fit the bullet to the throat and a neck sized case, any small run-out gets addressed when the rounds get chambered. I...

    Thanks Wolfer. That's the nice thing about the roller....... no need to be fast, just need the first shot to be dead on. I really like the creativeness on your approach to the scope base. Most all my rifles are all optically enhanced too, my older...

    Yup. New gun or total replace. Maybe better off with a total refund and move on. How exciting, bet you can't wait to see how they will handle the next "FIX" you might have down the road. lol

    Yes, I think they do have a nice carbine there. Now if they only would make one chambered in 45 Colt I'd be getting one.

    This thread keeps coming up and makes me pine that I do not shoot my 338-06 anymore. I built my first 338-06 in 1979 and shot a bazillion (GG) cast bullets in it as well as hunting deer and elk. I had LBT make me a PP mold about 25 years ago....

    I think you got it. Fit the throat, not the barrel. I have a first year 1892 with a tight barrel. BUT, bullets from my Ideal tong loading tool cast 0.427-0.429" (not round) and load and chamber fine. A four cavity 42798 cast on the soft side and...

    Thanks. I am glad you have a good one. I would have thought or hoped they would have used the same spec reamers. Odd that (too) long case mouth chamber in mine and some others. I wonder (guessing here) if in production they use a set of reamers to...

    That is a good piece of info Bob. I am going to look into that some more. I am in the same boat with my 1886 33 Winchester, SN on action dated to 1890's and barrel marked with WP in oval - well before the 33 Winchester was on the scene. I belong...

    Flatsguide - my Browning BPCR 45-70 chamber is long and will take 2,135" brass and should for best accuracy. Now that you have cast your chamber, can you say how long yours is?

    Okay! In the picture they did not look like 2-4/10ths but clearly are. I've done a lot of this hunting with an 1886. My advice on your maximum working range is, making a first shot at an unknown range past 150yds is a wounded critter. Here is...

    In your picture you show three empty cases on their side. Those are not 40-82 cases. (are they- perspective) What are you using for cases?? 40-65? 40-82 cases can be made from Starline 45-90 cases if you need some.
