    Probably. Additionally SAAMI has not established a MAP (Maximum Average Pressure) yet for the 32 H&R Magnum. Thus what you see in manuals is their interpretation of what they think they should call a "maximum" load. As there are revolvers, SSs...

    I am curious as to how they will know just "what" your bullets or boolits are composed of if checked. The game wardens going to carry around XRF machines?

    Skilled hand filing can do it, but from my observations of the product produced by trained monkeys at S&W you cannot depend upon it. Most important at Ruger was online statistical process control to maintain minimum required clearance with the...

    I've been using cast bullets in M1 carbines since '68. I most often used just COWWs (+ 2& tin the last 20 years) which run 12 - 14 BHN when air cooled. For many years I've preferred to use a service cartridge velocity level load as that most...

    Am I pushing them too fast? Short answer is yes.....obviously...... You might switch powders and load them down to 1300 - 1400 fps. However, if you want to use commercial cast at those velocities you might look for a vender that sells...

    With a strong modern gun, the 45 Colt can do anything a similarly loaded 44 Mag can, and does it at lower pressure than the 43 Mag. I have only used mine on Hogs, Deer and one Bear. Haven't recovered a bullet yet. Shooting them in 16”, 10”, 5.5”...
