    That is correct. The problem was understood in the very late 1890s. Primers with fulminate of mercury were discontinued and non-mercuric primers were introduced. That solver the problem with smokeless powder cases being wrecked by the mercury. ...

    Hodgdon's 60% rule basically applies to jacketed bullet use. Note the technician responded with; "It is very likely that a primer will blow the bullet out of the case. It is almost a certainty......The problem comes when the loads are so light...

    That should be M1906 ammunition, the stripper clips being a possible clue. Have you pulled a bullet?

    A 16" M94 AE 30-30 Saddle ring Carbine is my main truck gun. It wears a Williams peep rear sight and Firesight front. It's light and fast handling...powerful enough and well suited for my needs.

    That does not mean it was loaded to higher pressures than M1 ball because they weren't. They were supposed to be loaded with the M1 174 gr bullet. Notice the box does not identify it as M1 or M2 but as ".30 Ball Cartridges". They also were...

    I suggest the use of a Dacron filler instead of the wad as used in the old Lyman manual. The Dacron filler is beneficial and I use it. Many don't use a wad or filler but whether you find it beneficial depends on the weight of the cast bullet you...

    "The doubt is : may I enlarge flashole avoiding dacron filler?" The Dacron filler will still be needed for N110 to ignite and burn efficiently under that light of a cast bullet in the 7.65x53 case. The enlarged flash hole may help a little but...

    Maybe, maybe not.....but then I'm not shooting a TD or lever action am I so why should I limit myself?. Why would I load a 300 Win mag down to 30-30 ballistics and "bet" it might work? If I wanted to hunt with the 45-70 in a TD, which I have, I...

    I don't think that's a "myth busted" MT Gianni. The short stubby pistol WCs shot in 18 3/8" twist barrels are not very stable past 50 yards and many times make slightly oblong holes at 50 yards. The much longer .30 caliber 311440 will be shot...

    Yes it is true the arsenals switched from the recommended extruded powder to ball powder. The residue left by the powder was a calcium/carbon deposit that was very hard. The gas piston of the M16 series is part of the bolt with the cylinder being...

    "Are you trying to say the 14 twist didn't stabilize the bullet and it tumbled causing more damage? Might be where the story of smooth bore M16's got stated." Not stating that at all. I didn't mention anything about a "smooth bore M16" either. ...

    My 400 and 500 gr loads for my 450-400-70 Siamese Mauser run 49 - 55 ft/lbs of recoil. When I fire the 500s from a sitting position they roll me over backwards.....lots of fun...... No application? Obviously you've not hunted elk in a pole...

    "When that early Vietnam issue 5.56 ammo was used, and if it performed right, it blew a mighty big hole in the enemie's body that a 7.62x51 wouldn't do." Have to disagree. I was in Viet Nam in early '65 and then on to other target rich...

    Appears the cartridge photo's are with the wrong headstamp photo's? The MF FA 83 appears to be 7.62x51 made at the Footscray or Maribyrnong ammunition plant in Australia. The stripper clip on it is of M14 style. Note there is no + with the...

    BH209 and the Hornady 250 SST's are hard to beat in an Inline. It smokes em' FAST into a 1-1/2"-2" or less group out of my TC Impact at 100 yds. The only bullets that were more accurate for me were the Barnes 300 gr...but they were a devil to seat...

    The Fastfire 3 is completely adjustable, and is also capable of leading moving targets. Just ask the beer cans I chased around with my M1 Carbine this morning!

    He certainly is correct about minor alterations of the load having influences on the load. His example especially with the small capacity case of his 'cat. I found that out a long time ago in '74 when I got my 1st Oehler chronograph with the 22...

    Use an RCBS X-Die to FL size. You won't have to trim and cases will give many firings.

    Using a lathe with a collate and using a drill in the headstock or a counter sink works well. I have used my mini lathe to do so. Getting the hole centered and parallel to the bullets axis is essential to accuracy.
