    You're just going to have to get longer posts and a bigger post pounder. Those post stealing scrappers might give up if your posts are driven deep enough.

    The shortest ogive 100gr bullet for the .250-3000 is Speer .......not the BT version.I had good luck with IMR 3031 in Savage 99 with 1-14 twist.They should have listened to Newton and went 1-10 in the first place.I bought a 99A with the aluminum...

    These are commercial cast .381 and the dies are so tight they won't even load them .It's in a 1911 1894.Wouldn't be much point of sizing them .379 and they still may not chamber or crimp properly.
