    I would want the liner flush with the outside of the barrel flat and perfectly smooth, file and polish. Since the threads and countersink are bad I would go up one size to 5/16. While the breech plug is out take the back face and polish it smooth...

    In the H.P. White test Keith used a 429421 cast of 16-1 alloy at 250 gr, sized .429, lubed with Lyman Banana lube loaded over 22 gr Hercules 2400. He does not state (that I could find) what the cases and primers used were but I suspect the cases...

    35 Remington was the original caliber in the Model 8 semi auto rifle and pressures were set for that before it was ever chambered for a levergun. I have never felt I needed more oomph from the 35 in a levergun but I know the brass and the gun will...

    I have shared that same sentiment for years. Most LEOs view their guns as another piece of equipment on their duty belt. I include shotgun and rifle in that too. Many are sub par performers when it comes to firearms handling and qualifications.

    RCBS 32-098 followed by a brass (loose) copy of Lyman's 3118. The Lyman copy does really well in my Hand Ejectors - they prefer a heavier bullet to the 98gr. RCBS. I also like the aforementioned Lee TL SWC.
