    That is really interesting info. I didnt know that they reamed the cylinders 3 then rotate and 3 more. The difference in pressure from one chamber to the other causing difference in recoil is not something i've ever heard of, nor thought...

    Other than with throats that are undersized, what would be the benefit of reaming them? Having slugged them and measured with calipers, I know it isnt the most accurate measurement, but its not completely useless right? I measured .433 x4 and...

    El Bibliotecario, I was getting leading the cylinder throats, forcing cone, and the first inch of barrel using plain base bullets. When I shot gas checked bullets, the leading was completely alleviated in the bore, but the forcing cone still...

    Finished the book a while back. It was interesting. A little different than I expect, but some good insight into the model 94 and its uses in 30-30. Not much in the way of history of its use though. I would recommend it to anyone that is...

    You seem to not know true moisture content. Look about you for someone who might possibly have a wood moisture meter and measure true content.

    Thank you for the tip. I did try a flat punch, but it was larger. If I had one that was the same as the nose of the bullet, im sure it would have given better results. I actually bought the 402 punch for the lee 358 140 SWC bullet, and just...

    I have a 31141 mould, and I have a #8 top punch. The punch's cavity is just a touch larger than the nose of the bullet. It would seem to me, it'd be better, if it fit just right. Is it supposed to fit better than that? I know bullet...

    I was testing loads the other day, I got a 1 5/8" group with my winchester 30-30, 31141 reload. Factory federal 170 grain did 1 3/8 group on the same session. Both of those at 70 yards. Im pretty happy with that.
