    But No Goats - They eat the native Vegetation (Do Bison eat Non-Native Vegetation?) No there is no salvaging and keeping the meat - left to waste as is the case in Most of the "Biologist/Eco-Freak" endeavors. If there is a need to reduce or cull a...

    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.

    swheeler replied to a thread Fillers...? in Single Shot Guns
    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...
