    I have no problems feeding those in my 35 Whelen, Mauser VZ24. I do use resized 30-06 cases, which are short at 2.460". My case mouth is shorter and the bullet groove ends up back .024" more than yours. Try seating even shorter and see. Better than...

    Using a PID to control the pot heat adds another whole dimension, too. This would reduce the learning curve in halve. PID plans are on the site.

    A hot plate and PID make a yuge difference! I used a #10 cut off can to make a warming oven.

    A yard sale hot plate works great for molds. A cut down #10 can make a good cover to make a sort of oven. A wood handle on the can keeps you from getting burned. See the top left side of the photo.

    No worries about getting poor bullets at first. Just melt them back down, no one will know. Cast quickly to heat up your mold to temperature. Don't start inspecting your boolits until they start frosting over. Then, you can slow down your cadence....

    I put a thin coating of Alox on any metal under the wood of my deer hunting rifle. So I don't have to tear it all the way down to clean it, if it gets wet, until after the season. I'll use BLL next season because it's even thinner.

    With the "set" spring it looks like it did real well from 2100 psi to 1500 for a 170 dollar pcp..Looks like about a 42 fps. spread for 25 to 26 shots. Probably do even better as it breaks in more?
