    Only for smokeless powder reloaders. Shooting black powder reloads is always going to leave a residue & dirty bore. Due to BP being hygroscopic!

    Kinda makes me jealous regarding the luger. Never did find one worth what they were asking for it. Think coal mine regarding the bore. Frank

    Maybe you are thinking of Santa Fe arms. They did a land office business making sporters out of military rifles back in the '60's and '70's. Frank

    The win 54 action I posted about has the two sloping plates front and rear so at first glance it looks like a standard win mag box. However it isn't single stack. It's just like a regular rimless rifle. Except the feed ramp actually has two grooves...

    Heat the mold to the pot temperature so with a 5 second pour - the sprue puddle frosts in 5 seconds. Would think if you had to wait for the bullets to drop - the mold was too hot and you have lead smear on top of the mold under the sprue plate

    Exal, presume the targets were shot at 100 yds? Use the same powder charges and shoot 200 & 300yd targets. These distances will separate "the boys from the men" Good Luck

    Well instead it not passing the test for a '06 chamber, why don't you try the 350 rem mag case necked up to .375?. Won't be limited to the short 600 and 660 actions it was designed for and you could seat the bullets out further. Something to think...
