    Ok I missed that they are powder coated, try heat treating them. It seems strange that only one out of every five does it though, but with mine as a lube problem it was the 5th shot always not random.

    I am going to say it's your lube at that speed. I had something very similar going on with my home brewed lube and the 7.62x54r, multiple groups on same target, 5th shot out every single time. I tried adding ATF helped, then paraffin and fliers went...

    Interesting colored wood, I can see a bit of striping in the butt. Looks as if stock has been refinished though? The one pictured on the Wiki link is just fantastic, tiger striped stem to stern!

    You could try some 5-7 shot groups, maybe even more rounds would give a better picture. I see a typo in your data though you forgot the C in BL-C (2) or lot# 2 however your canister is marked. Have fun and enjoy, even if you are using those danged...

    Ranger Rick had his own molds and cast his own, and lubed them with Carnauba Red. His first webpage was on my site. When he went out of business, he put many of the molds up for auction and I ended up with several of them, but we had a fire in our...

    That is one strange looking piece of brass! I made a belted rimless rifle cartridge casing a couple of times, not on purpose though. Glad the casing didn't let go and nothing/nobody got hurt.

    I have a BFR in 45-70 and have pushed 405s to 1750fps. And while it was no longer fun to shoot, it was still controllable. I could put 5 into 1.5" at 50yds with the open sights ;)

    Most excellent, :) I am a real big fan of the Houge Mono-Grip. I tried one for a Super BlackHawk on my 475 BFR. It took a little work with a dremel, but I got it to fit.

    I remember these and Ranger Rick, pretty sure someone at Accurate Reloading Forum was shooting these out of the Lott at 1900 fps, seems like H335 or AA 2230 powder was used.

    Before taking it apart try spraying some cleaner in the workings. Carb cleaner may cut the old oil. Blow it out with compressed air. Try setting the trigger first and then cock the hammer, could be out of adjustment.

    The 500JRH can be loaded to much higher pressures than the 500 Linebaugh. The Linebaugh is limited to around 35,000 psi, while the JRH can be loaded up to 50,000psi. The JRH can launch 400gn bullets to nearly 1600fps, while the Linebaugh tops out...

    Actually, the law reads to not have a "Bore Diameter" larger than 1/2" Not shoot a bullet larger than 1/2" . So look at the definition of Bore and groove measurements. The Bore diameter is measured from the inside of the lands. Now Add .005"...
