    Hamish replied to a thread 30 Bobcat in Case Forming / Re-forming
    Anything between .30 Makarov/Mauser length and full length Max. I know fellow's shooting all kinds of different length, rimmed and rimless, single shot, bolt, AR. Little thirties are more for funner.

    I grew up on it. My Dad loaded it in just about every cast bullet load with the exception of His Bullseye Competition Loads and Hot .357Mag & .44Mag loads. And that is a lot of .380, .38Spl, .44Spl , .45Colt, .45ACP Hardball. And a bunch of rifle...

    Hamish replied to a thread 30 Bobcat in Case Forming / Re-forming
    Tom, By any chance, do you have a set of 300 Blackout dies to do a comparison? Would be quite interested to see the dimensional differences between a .30 Bobcat and a .300 BLK rimmed.

    Wouldn't that be .327 Fed Mag. And It's a light cartridge. If you're going to put it in a heavy rifle, you might as well go with a bigger cartridge. I think the 1st batch of 1894CL's in .32-20 were Great Guns. Wish I still had mine. And...

    I believe that you can still get them from Ruger. If this is incorrect somebody please post the current info.

    I get same in one Marlin ‘94. My newer Cowboy dosent do it. So I agree generous chamber. I have shot some healthy RUGER loads pushing 300’s to 1600 to see it. Worst is brass probably won’t last as long. But I have had that rifle for over twenty...

    NOT a brass problem. A sloppy chamber and excessive case sizing problem.

    I will put You in My Prayers tonight. I know how hard it is to watch a Parent suffer until the end. We had to do it twice. My Wife and I are hanging on by our fingernails too. Prayers help sooth the Soul.

    Well that’s a big one! My first attempt set at 400 left a pool of lead with a couple lumps. Ironically it was red HF and looked omanis. Temps on these cheap ovens can be all over the map

    If you get into reloading .32 ACP in a major way, you will find that mixed headstamp, range pickup brass varies greatly in wall thickness and is rather a nuisance. Dealing with it is a fool's errand and poor economy. As one who has over 50 years...

    Too hot for the chamber dimensions. You are asking alot of the brass to expand that much and seal a sloppy chamber. The .45 Colt, .44 Magnum, .357 were not designed for lever-action use. To make a cylindrical case feed reliably in a...

    I like my 222/20 better than my later, bigger & heavier 223/20 Savage. That 222 is a earlier model and much lighter. Shoots great too regulation is MUCH closer than the 223/20. Not much difference as the 223 is a 1:14 so it won’t shoot heavier than...

    Chamber is too large. Measure diameter of fired case at the bulge. Expect that it is over .485" Load is probably too hot. Dies size the brass too much. Measure your sized cases, expect they are smaller in body diameter than .475" Look...
