    Everyone I know that shoots subsonic ammo with a can has action locks installed so the action does not cycle and make noise.

    While ambient temp dosnt actually affect the lead temps it does the cooling of the stream of lead and the moulds rate of cooling. Used to be with the older powders ambient temp wouldalso greatly affect velocity and pressures. Your upping the pot...

    The "crowned" rollers also work better on tapered surfaces and also do well with straight surfaces. As to force You don't need tight just enough to support the barrel. a nice touch on all 3 rollers does fine....

    I believe I would bolt the ring to the legs rather than pop rivet it. a 2" wide 3/16" thick ring to fit snugly around outside and 2 1/4" bolts in each leg would hold nicely. Welding if possible would be better. If bolting a 1 1/2" overlap of ends so...

    One plus to the AR platform over the garand and M1-A/M14 is the bedding or lack off. The AR series ( 15 or 10) once built and tuned to match standards tends to run there till the barrel burns out and needs replaced. The garand with its thin bedding...

    The magneto speed is one of the new generation chronographs that is not affected by light sources or shadows. Its a good unit and accurate. Attaches to barrel so some front sights or other attachments may affect it and take more to set it up. ...

    You can make a sleeve for the bearings outer race that's convex on the outside so it only bears on the one point. It normally dosnt take a lot of radious to accomplish this. ( Think of the crown on a flat belt pulley). Machine the sleeves and press...

    I will agree with elk hunter on the primers not being quite hot enough for ball powder. It looks like the load is slightly compressed also. Other issues might be a plugged or blocked flash hole, cleaning media, manufacturing burr folded over. ...

    I worked with clover lapping compounds 320 and finer. Not overly aggressive but metal is removed ( a .0002 removed is .0004 on dia). Rotating the lap helps to keep lands and groove even . To charge the lap roll...

    Get the 3/8" and 1/2" round edge finders with the double ends and one end .200 dia. The old style "wigglers" work but arn't near as handy. If your going to use it just in the mill an intrepid with back dial and the swing mount is easier to read...

    A good way to reinforce those legs would be a 1/8" plate fitted and welded inside the legs to stiffen them up, This will make a very solid I shape of them. Then forma ring from 1/4" x 1 1/2" flat stock and weld around the outside of the legs at 1/4"...
