    I have way more casting and reloading stuff than I need but I can afford it and I want it so it is worth it to me. End of story.

    That's why flatness of a fired primer is a poor indication of pressure. I tested some Winchester white box M193 a few years back for a friend. He said he was getting 3340 fps from his 20" AR. That is a bit fast. I stopped after 7 rounds as...

    vzerone Please don't misunderstand, I was not being critical at all. I was just explaining the why the psi (CUP) figures you posted were different than the psi I posted. It's like driving your car about 60 MPH, your also going about 100...

    And that's why we saw so many M1917s being used in NMC competition......the M1917s are more accurate and easier to operate, especially in the rapid fire stages than M1903s..........and if you buy that I've got a bridge for sale here in Lake...

    Previous TMs had definitions and testing procedures. Also the pressures listed are MAPs (Maximum Allowable Pressure). That is not necessarily what any lot of cartrdges is actually loaded to. Cartridges are loaded to a +/- velocity spec not to...

    Yes the pressures are listed as "psi" but they are measured via CUP method. All older published pressures taken via CUP and LUP were refered to as "psi". However, with the advent of modern and better pressure measuring methods (transducer and...

    With a bullet stuck in the throat, leade, etc. an AR bolt/carrier when drawn to the rear and released has sufficient momentum to push the next feeding bullet back into the case. I saw this many times over the years even with M193 and M855 ammo. It...

    Popper Did the primer show a firing pin indent? My AR 10's have firing pin springs. Does the DPMS? AR 10's are not standardized like AR 15's

    Easy enough to test with a primed case. Chamber the primed case and pull the charging handle back until the bolt rotates slightly and pull the trigger.

    I velocity/pressure tested some Venezuelan CAVIM 84 7x57 about 7 - 8 years ago. I would assume it was intended to be used in their FN-49s(?). It was loaded with a 139 gr FMJBT over 45 gr of an extruded powder. Cases were CAVIM 84 lot #101-01. ...

    Did not fire out of battery or bolt and bolt carrier would have been blown to the rear. OP had a bore obstruction. Watch the sequence of events in the video. OP pulled the trigger, just a click, no bang, no recoil. OP Ejected the case and next...

    For the folks that believe you can fire an ar out of battery take a primed case and try it. The bolt has to be fully rotated before the firing pin can reach the primer. The video clearly shows and the OP stated he manual cycled the next round...

    No with the Dillon swager if you adjust the swager too deep you push material into the bottom of the primer pocket. This seems to only be an issue with 223 due to the small size of the internal support rod.

    On a side note I was out at the range and a shooter was having lots of failure to cycle/issue. I normally don't stick my nose into other people's business unless asked. I was testing a couple of match ar's This shooter came over and asked...

    In the video the you can't tell if you ejected brass when you manually cycled it but I would bet you did. I am far from an expert on blown AR's but I have inspected and or repaired 9 or 10 that had blown. In addition to building ar service and...

    I modified a Leupold base to fit the rear sight of one of my "sportered" M91s. I put a Redfield 3X pistol scope on it. It's also D&T'd for a Lyman SME receiver sight and I modified the front base to take an M14 front sight. The Bolt handle is...

    "This has been an interesting read. I am flummoxed as to what this cartridge will do that a 35 Whelen IMP will not?" The 35 XCB (35x57) was designed to feed out of standard Mauser actions w/o any action modifications. The 35 Whelen IMP most...

    Only 16 and 20" barrels with no mention of twist in 308W. Might do well with some tweaking in CBA commercial rifle matches.
