    Manufactured cigarettes are required in several jurisdictions to use so-called "fire safe" cigarette papers. Loos leaf cigarette papers are not.

    Looks good! I only make them for 44cal but with non-violent house rounds, top with corn meal to seat the ball out to the mouth, card wad and a lube wafer to keep fouling soft. I twist both ends and cut the tails off, store my 44 cartridges in 45acp...

    I have had very erratic performance, including major velocity swings with full to the base and pressured if not compressed loads of TB in 45 Colt. Like you, I will not use compressed loads of TB. Haven't tried it in 45 acp.

    Just to clarify, I am not suggesting that the boolit be larger than bore size, only then, when patched, the final diameter should exceed bore diameter. If I hadn't been clear on that or my meaning was misunderstood, my apologies. If I misunderstood...

    Thanks for the very cool photo. I am aware of what is under discussion with regard to chamber size and I have not taken issue with the position that a tighter chamber is preferable to looser chamber, nor have I expressed views that would suggest an...

    Great boolit for the 30-30! .311 may be on the large size for Winchester's cut rifling, but it's a good place to start. My Marlin microgroove likes .311 but I have a Handi Rifle with cut rifling that prefers .309 and an old Winchester (since rebored...

    With Ruger now chambering several rifles in 450 Bushmaster, it may give more impetus to the cartridge, otherwise, it's really 6 vs half a dozen.

    So, there may be some terminology issues here. There are tighter and looser chambers. I don't believe they are necessarily "paper patched chambers" and grease groove chambers", just different sized chambers. Seating depth of course depends on bullet...

    You clearly have a real issue. Chippy. I did not address or refute any remarks you made. I explained what I have learned and it contradicts your belief. Tough. Move on. I don't know who you imagine you are or why you think you're the forum bully-boy...
