    The AR15 WILL NOT fire out of battery. It can not happen unless the firing pin was sticking forward. You had a case failure from an over pressure situation. And it also looks like your brass is way over length. The swelled area on the case the...

    Velocity is the enemy to AR500. Most manufactures say at 2,800 to 3,000 you will start to see damage. Also steel core, armor piercing, and full metal jacket ammunition are not recommended for the longevity of the targets. I have cut some for...

    The issue is the size of the ejection port on the short action when using rounds that are normally used in long actions like the 30-06. Since the bolt face holds the cartridge head the bullet catches on the front of the ejection port when unloading...

    You don't have to pull the bolt when the cartridge is fired. Case has enough clearance to extract normally. You only have to pull the bolt when you want to remove an unfired cartridge.

    My favorite load is 10 grains of Unique under a 385 grain cast. You can take the TD's up to 28,000 PSI but with heavier bullets it lets you know that you pulled the trigger. If I was going to shoot a Buffalo yes but far more fun with lighter loads.

    In 308 win the 5744 really shines for me. It is one of my favorite powders. If you can find any 2400 or 4227 those work well too.
