    Yes I have one on RBH and Ruger SSix, I like them. I'm not sure they are made any longer though, One Ragged Hole was the name. The link above may be the same company with a slight name change for the sight?

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I do not FL resize my .45-2.6" cases. You can taper crimp them using the FL sizer without the expander ball in place. Seated 1/10th deep, I can pull the PP bullet out with my fingers. The light crimp just keeps the load together traveling to the...

    Based on Sellers book, nearly all of the Sharps cartridges were designed around PP bullets. IMHO, rifle grease groove bullets came about about the same time Sharps went out of business in 1881(?). The PP bullet was more labor intensive than the...
