    I have way more casting and reloading stuff than I need but I can afford it and I want it so it is worth it to me. End of story.

    That's why flatness of a fired primer is a poor indication of pressure. I tested some Winchester white box M193 a few years back for a friend. He said he was getting 3340 fps from his 20" AR. That is a bit fast. I stopped after 7 rounds as...

    vzerone Please don't misunderstand, I was not being critical at all. I was just explaining the why the psi (CUP) figures you posted were different than the psi I posted. It's like driving your car about 60 MPH, your also going about 100...

    And that's why we saw so many M1917s being used in NMC competition......the M1917s are more accurate and easier to operate, especially in the rapid fire stages than M1903s..........and if you buy that I've got a bridge for sale here in Lake...

    Previous TMs had definitions and testing procedures. Also the pressures listed are MAPs (Maximum Allowable Pressure). That is not necessarily what any lot of cartrdges is actually loaded to. Cartridges are loaded to a +/- velocity spec not to...

    Yes the pressures are listed as "psi" but they are measured via CUP method. All older published pressures taken via CUP and LUP were refered to as "psi". However, with the advent of modern and better pressure measuring methods (transducer and...

    With a bullet stuck in the throat, leade, etc. an AR bolt/carrier when drawn to the rear and released has sufficient momentum to push the next feeding bullet back into the case. I saw this many times over the years even with M193 and M855 ammo. It...

    Popper Did the primer show a firing pin indent? My AR 10's have firing pin springs. Does the DPMS? AR 10's are not standardized like AR 15's

    Easy enough to test with a primed case. Chamber the primed case and pull the charging handle back until the bolt rotates slightly and pull the trigger.

    Put them in a Tupperware container with lid. Form a small bowl out of tin foil. Put a small chunk of soaking wet sponge (water) in the tin foil. Put sliced apples, slices of oranges or whatever if you want a slight flavor to the cigars. You need...

    I velocity/pressure tested some Venezuelan CAVIM 84 7x57 about 7 - 8 years ago. I would assume it was intended to be used in their FN-49s(?). It was loaded with a 139 gr FMJBT over 45 gr of an extruded powder. Cases were CAVIM 84 lot #101-01. ...
