    Take the barrel/action out of the stock and see if it will fire. If it does then something in the stock is blocking the trigger from fully disengaging the sear on the striker.

    Soft swaged Hornady or Speer bullets should shoot fine over 4.8 gr Titegroup w/o leading like that so I doubt its the alloy. My first suspicion would be the lube. I suggest using a Q-tip to put another coat of LLA or the 45/45/10 on the drive...

    The PC increases the diameter including that of the nose. The lands are scraping the PC off the nose.

    I use the Swede stripper clips for my M1903s and .308W Mauser, they work fine. No reason the 358W shouldn't work.

    I've used Jeff Cooper's suggested 7.5 gr Unique under a 200 gr cast for many years. Not my standard practice load but when I hunt with the M1911 or my M98 conversion it is the most common load I use. I also load 7.5 gr Unique under Hornady 185...

    Might weigh some before powder coating. Also the alloy used can give a marked difference in bullet weight. Moulds are cut for a certain ally for a specific weight +/-. If you use an alloy with a higher % of lead the bullets will be heavier. If...

    Guy In another thread I recommended a Dacron filler over 36 gr IMR3031 under your 350 gr bullet in the 45-75. That still should be quite safe but you may want to drop to 32 gr and still use the Dacron filler. That way you can work up to 1380...

    Don't over think it. You answered your own question with; "or maybe my lube wasn't up to the task, there wasn't a lube star". Your home made moly lube simply wasn't up to the task with that bullet in a revolver with that length of barrel. ...

    Concur. It's during the flight of the bullet to target that the centrifugal force acts on the imbalances in the bullet which results in larger groups or poorer accuracy. However the 3 moa accuracy tomme boy was getting is within the expected...

    vzerone I've no doubt the improper use of Dacron can result in the melting of it. I've no doubt Dacron might help seal the bore with a poorly fitting bullet. I do not advise in the improper use of Dacron as a wad or filler with fast burning...
