    My 455 really likes Wolf Match. Luckygunner has it in stock right now along with Eley Tenex. Get a box of each, the Wolf is half the price. Gun will tell you what it likes.

    You might try loosening up the sprue plate. If it is overtight, it could bend up at the opposite end of the sprue plate from the hinge screw.

    I believe mine is a Frankford Arsenal cleaning kit that it came in. I really like it so much better than a cleaning rod. I don't have to worry about having guides for each rifle, its rubber coated so nothing to damage the barrel, and nothing bends...

    After a good scrubbing of the bore on any of my 22s, it takes a few rounds for the barrels to settle in. I usually just run 2 wet patches with Hoppes down the barrel with a bore cable, then three or four dry patches til they come out pretty clean....

    Really happy with the Skinner sight on my 336. It comes standard with two different sizes of apertures. Its not as fine as a peep sight, but they are accurate and quick to acquire.

    I would play around with 5 dummy rounds loaded as long as possible while still fitting the magazine. If they don't cycle flawlessly, start seating them deeper and repeat the cycling of the bolt. See what length works best.

    It looks like you fired those in a Glock. Same as my brass looks after it's been fired.glock has that weird firing pin and pin hole in the breech. Like I said, looks normal.

    The V8 60 was a 60 horsepower motor that came out in 1937. Its a smaller block and heads, 136 cubic inches. They weren't known as barn burners but in a light weight ride like a Track T or a midget racer, it could be fun. I wouldn't expect any more...

    Dillon spray lube. I was going to make my own lanolin/alcohol spray, then saw the Dillon stuff at Graf's in St Charles. Same stuff, don't have to mix, and I shoot a lot more pistol than rifle so it made sense to just buy it.

    My thought would be that the 9x18 is a fatter round which would indicated a slightly larger chamber. When the brass was fire formed it spread out which shortened the case. Just thoughts, but in my mind that makes sense.
