    ya I would think after 50k the rifling was all but gone and if anything pressure would have dropped because of it. About like shooting a 401 bullet out of your 41 mag. Either it was fatiqued metal or a bore obstruction. Keep in mind that guns are...

    I bet firing that would leave marks on the cases. Absolutely unacceptable. Any machinist or gunsmith could have easily made a correctly fitting part. Frank-certified machinist.

    Copperheads are only slightly hard to identify just before they sluff. Their patterns aren't as distinct then. They don't look anything like rat snakes. It's not like they are rare.

    that is ALOT of rounds through a bolt action gun. I guess its possible that the metal was fatigued or that there was a flaw in it that took that long to fail. Other thoughts are that if they were that lackidaisile with there loner guns that they...

    When I was with the local VFD that's exactly what we called some of the fires we fought. Some were also spontaneous combustion when the Insurance Policy was combined with the Mortgage.

    now money IS a valid argument. Not a lot of high power long range shooters up here and he 6.5s I saw on the racks at the gunshop were usually sold at a reduced price because they collected dust. Now if I found a steal on one id not be beyond buying...

    You wouldn't be alone! Although some of the targets are so small, a trade gun is really put to task. Olives at 25 yards, anyone? Plus shooting through the loops on a pretzel without breaking them!
