    A wildcat based on a 30/30 operating at higher pressures could be a problem. SAAMI 30/30 or under loads not so much. Also for calculating breech thrust it's the internal area of the case not the rim diameter that matters. The SAAMI spec for...

    Do you have any first hand knowledge of a 30/30 stretching a Contender frame? I have personally seen stretched frames from the 375 Win and the 45/70 but never in 30/30 or 7-30 Waters. The 375 Win is the only one that I am aware of that could...

    I'm VERY interested in that offer! No hurry but I would love to try that. My barrel is modern (not a legal lever silhouette rifle), but I would like to hunt it at least once or twice and black bears on the Alaska coast would seem perfect.

    As an interesting exercise that may come to fruition, let's suppose that one were to pull an Alaskan Coastal BLACK bear tag. And one wanted to take a Marlin 1895 ( a real one, not the modern imposter), in .45-70, loaded with black of course, what...

    While reloading as a gift does have a possible liability concern the same can be said for cooking a meal for someone or giving someone a ride in your car.

    A gift is personal use. The gift was produced as a gift and not for produced for livelihood or profit. While finding example of reloading are more challenging it is easy to find the BATF view on what "personal use" is relating to the occasional...

    The swinglock design is for sabotless smokeless muzzleloader shooting. It's a barrel section used to impart the actual rifle into the jacketed bullet. That is called full form. They also make a smooth die that doesn't impart rifling into the...

    First being rimmed or rimless has zero bearing on the OP's issue of the primer backing out. Shoulder setback is not an issue per the OP and it shouldn't be based on it being a rimmed cartridge. Drilling flash holes is done for a variety of reasons...

    I have both and I prefer the 7-30 Waters. I reload for over 50 calibers and I greatly dislike brass that is not properly head stamped. For brass I use Federal since that is the only one that is marked 7-30 Waters. Factory loaded is still...

    It's a low pressure side effect. You have at least workable three solutions. Increase the pressure enough that the primers reseat, use O-rings on the case or as Larry suggested drill the flashhole. The 303 headspaces on the rim but the issue is...

    They loaded and chambered once so the necks can't be vastly oversize. First I would measure the necks to see what you have. It almost sounds like you have expander ball adjusted to high into the neck?

    I have done a total of one set. I did it on a Bridgeport with a boring head but they can be done on a lathe with a faceplate. The key is to determine what the space between the ring halves is when it is very lightly clamped on a 1" diameter. I...
