    There was just a thread called "Apparently not all gun owners are honest". It just completely disappeared. Why administers?

    I don't think I have ever had a barrel that shaved off long streaks. I would assume that barrel has serious problems. As it is being described, I envision a rough spot in the barrel, and it is rubbing off lead in one spot. Not all the way around the...

    All of the above. It's not like you are handling Anthrax..... no matter what they say in the Soviet State of California. Common sense is all that is required. Good ventilation is good, but lead vapors don't form until it gets WAY above the melting...

    As far as I'm concerned, they did it to themselves. I said this was coming in one if the Marlin threads. And that's the saddest part. They are taking the Marlin name down with them. Oh, wait a minute, now that i think about it, it is President...

    I was working up a load for my 45-70 and using Varget and wheel weights. Near the top end, I was seeing perfect impressions of the Varget grains into the base. Don't know if they were being burned in, or just pressed in. I'm looking for the photo....

    So is it more a sandblasting effect? Or does the heat from that effect have more to do with it? The errosion problem seems to happen quicker to smaller bore diameters with large case capacities. Im thinking 220 swift compared to .223. here.

    I vote this also because i have experience with it. VERY good trigger for the money. I would put one in my bolt gun if i could. I used single stage triggers all my life. But i can't for the life of me figure out why they are not used in more...

    All plausible theories. The reference to diesel engines is interesting. Diesel fuel ignites because the pressure created brings the fuel up past it's flash point (pressure creates heat, heat creates pressure... laws of thermaldynamics). But the...

    That's why I'm in a dilemma. The info in the reloading manual seems to differ.

    The only other reference I can find is mentioning lead exposure in indoor ranges.... "Full metal jacket bullets have traditionally been manufactured forming a jacket and then inserting a lead core from the rear. This leaves exposed lead at the...

    Possible. Have you tried running Sweets copper remover through your barrel? You might be surprised what you get out. I was trying to find where I read about barrel leading. The only reference to lead vaporizing I can find in my reloading manual...

    Heat and pressure are related to each other. It's not just the heat from the powder being burned, but 50000 psi( or more in a rifle), and the oxygen content of the powder adds up. It leads me to this question.... How can a material build 50000 psi+...

    Is the major source of lead/copper fouling in a barrel due to friction? Or is it due to the hot powder gasses vaporizing the metal and depositing down the barrel? My opinion is vaporization. Hodgdon CFE powder works (I think) by chemically not...

    If powder gases WILL vaporize copper, why not lead? It is proven that's where copper fouling comes from. Vaporized copper. Not from barrel imperfections imparting friction on the bullet. The barrel imperfections act like a....for the lack of a...

    My cousin still has lead bird shot in his back from when he was a teenager. Long story. But the doctors said it would do more damage to remove it. The body will form fat sacs around it to seal it off. No lead issues. As for the lead at indoor...

    That's about what I thought. If the factory ammo performs in a handgun, then it will do as well or better in a rifle. There is absolutely no reasonable excuse not to get rid of the 1 in 38 altogether. At least I can't think of one. Other then Elmer...

    But by going 1 in 20, it won't hurt the performance of that factory ammo, and will open up a niche market for factory heavy boolits. Its a win-win. And it won't cost any more to produce. I don't see the issue. What is the twist rate of a common...
