    Rick, Do you know what your velocity is with the 4350 load and are you using H4350 or IMR? With 11gr of unique and a 212 grain gas check bullet similar to the one your using I am getting 1250 FPS. I also like 22gr of AA5744 and the same...

    John it seems like you have a lot of experience with these rifles, do you think this is a problem more common in the takedown model or have you seen it in the fixed barrel models also? Thanks, Mark

    This is the group with the 45 grains of IMR 4350. Left to right was easy to see on the front sight but I could not tell where I was in the bull because of the white ivory on the front sight.

    I shot two loads today at 50 yds using the Hornady 200gr ftx and cci lr primers with good results. Neither had sticky extraction. 1st, 36gr of IMR 3031, avg 2125fps and SD of 19. Note, the Hornady manual shows the same FTX bullet and 36.6gr as...

    Thanks Rick, I am really curious why some of these 1886s have this problem. I wonder if its unique to the takedown models possibly having a little flex at the receiver/barrel junction? I have Venturino's book and he was also using a takedown...

    Yes, because the stem on the ejector fits through that hole in the shim, I don't think the shim can move. So far it seems to have fixed the problem.

    I should note that I fire formed the brass using a small rubber band around the case head so the case shoulder would blow forward. After that I only neck sized so even if there was a little bit of extra headspace the brass is fit to the chamber of...

    I checked the headspace by using an unfired case and feeler gauges at the top of the bolt. With a case rim measuring .064 it would close on a .008 but had noticeable resistance on a .010. So somewhere between. 072" and .074" headspace. SAAMI shows...

    I think headspace, caused by the size and fit of the ejector is basically the problem. The 1886 has a huge ejector that doubles as the lower half of the bolt face. If it were just a small pin type ejector I'll bet the problem would not be happening.

    My load in a 1892 Rossi with a 26" Octagon Green Mountain 20:1 twist barrel is 13.5 gr 296 and a 180gr MBC Coated striker bullet doing 1,600fps. I have won several offhand gong matches shooting out to 200 yds with this combination.

    I have read of others complaining of sticky extraction/lever and or case head separation and short case life when reloading for an original 1886 Winchester in 33 WCF. This was happening to me with moderate loads with 200 gr jacketed bullets. After...
