    Ok I missed that they are powder coated, try heat treating them. It seems strange that only one out of every five does it though, but with mine as a lube problem it was the 5th shot always not random.

    I am going to say it's your lube at that speed. I had something very similar going on with my home brewed lube and the 7.62x54r, multiple groups on same target, 5th shot out every single time. I tried adding ATF helped, then paraffin and fliers went...

    Interesting colored wood, I can see a bit of striping in the butt. Looks as if stock has been refinished though? The one pictured on the Wiki link is just fantastic, tiger striped stem to stern!

    You could try some 5-7 shot groups, maybe even more rounds would give a better picture. I see a typo in your data though you forgot the C in BL-C (2) or lot# 2 however your canister is marked. Have fun and enjoy, even if you are using those danged...

    That is one strange looking piece of brass! I made a belted rimless rifle cartridge casing a couple of times, not on purpose though. Glad the casing didn't let go and nothing/nobody got hurt.

    Light strikes could be a sign of long headspace. Same for the primer appearance. The primer backs out with the case forward than get reseated under pressure.

    I think I shaved a few ounces off by changing out scopes, the Burris seems lighter than the Bushnell. The weight doesn't really bother too much unless gaining elevation, going from 3500 to 6500 every ounce counts, setting in the safe none of my...

    New paint nutmeg with black webbing and 2 coats of clear matte. While I was at it I bought a Burris Fullfield II Ballistic Plex scope and a set of Leupold rings. Now all I have to do is get out and sight it in!

    I remember these and Ranger Rick, pretty sure someone at Accurate Reloading Forum was shooting these out of the Lott at 1900 fps, seems like H335 or AA 2230 powder was used.

    For LE write a ticket or citation they need to site what code you allegedly violated. Without that it's not a valid citation.
