    Out of office for a few days, spring break with family. Work is going well on all orders. Will not take too long to start shipping orders upon return. Thank you for your patience to those of you on my list. Brian

    Thanks for your service. I worked B's, E's, H's and a couple of J's. They have came a long way since the A's. I don't have any 2 cavity Lees and I don't remember how they vent. Since it's mostly one cavity it could be a venting issue.

    8mm Remington magnum case necked down to 7mm is what the STW is based on. 300 Weatherby and 300 H&H brass will work but I believe both require fireforming to be complete.

    On Browning's high gloss finishes they use polyurethane. Not sure on the 1895's. I am fortunate to have a dip tank that I use MEK for stripping epoxy and polyurethane. The above recommendation should work.

    Yes it threads into the front of the breech plug. Other versions use carbide bushings. http://arrowheadsporting.com/breechplugs.html Not sure what a flash hole extension is but these systems do reduce and extend the flash hole. Once they erode...

    "Perhaps there actually isn't any greater increase in pressure inside the primer? Or if there is an increase it is not a sufficient increase to pose any problem or danger." I don't know the answer but I tend to agree that it's not an issue at...

    Same cartridges are 65,000 PSI SAAMI. Priming compound will not produce 65K. With the smokeless muzzloaders some loads are over 50K using a primer designed for a 14.5K max cartridge. The small vent liners restrict the gas pressure enough so it's...

    For me with my current needs or wants it would be a 220 Swift. I love this cartridge. If you want something different 225 Winchesters are nice in single shots.

    Might be time to contact Corbin. Did you try less lube on jacket, more on punch and apply a little more pressure?

    Comparing one animal to another means nothing. Comparing the same cut of meat from the same animal is easy. Age some, freeze some and prepare them at the same time. Question answered.
