    Does that 5 inch shroud double as a golf-ball launcher when you remove the can and use a blank cartridge? But seriously, with a pistol-length gas tube with the 11" barrel, you aren't exploring new territory with subsonic bullets in a can. ...

    Kimber just got away with it is all. The Swede action was never designed for the pressures the 6.5 Creebmoor reaches or what the 308W can reach. You'll get away with for awhile, but someday it may come back and hit you in the hind end!

    As issued, it's hands down the Swede's. Take 50 examples of any military bolt action as issued, compare the average accuracy, and the Swedes will win the contest every time.

    BD replied to a thread 6.5 BlowMore in Factory Rifles
    6.5 Creedmore does in a short action at higher pressure what a 6.5 Swede does in a long action at lower pressure. I think I like my Swedes better, but I do need to move my head a bit when I cycle the action or the bolt hits the end of my nose. 260...

    turtlezx, Yes, it was a milsurp propellant, and long ago it was relatively inexpensive and came in 2 different burn rates that I know of: H 110/W296 and AA #9. Unless you can find it at a screaming bargain (Pat's Reloading, Jeff Bartlett, et. al),...

    mattri, I'd choose the maxi hunter first, good bullet i've used several times for deer. I'd get the Lee 50 cal real bullet works well too! get the 250 gr one, it works better in my guns.

    I never meant to imply that a Lee Loader assembled inaccurate ammunition. Quite the contrary--my 30-06 and 223 ammo so loaded in the early days of my refilling hobby did some VERY accurate shooting for me. I was pretty happy with their ammo output...

    My Katadin barrel measures .4575 - yours is probably close. I recommend the Gould - you really do not need a gas check with the 45-70, any velocity that would require a gc will be too punishing on the other end. The Gould is the Lyman 457122HP. ...

    There are 4 6.5 SWEDEmores in the family and they hunt. I find it funny that 6.5 swede load info is mild because everyone knows that the model 96 mauser cannot handle the same pressures as the creedmore is rated for. Yet kimber rebarreled several...

    With a .4055" diameter boolit, performance should be quite similar to the 405 JES. Finding someone stateside to rebore your 1895 to a .4055 groove diameter may prove difficult. Is the 348 win not doable for a rebore?

    With one (obvious?) exception. The more we use God's words the more effective it is. Memorize scripture as well.

    I shoot the LEE 95 RF at .358" from mine. A neighbor has tried the LEE 105, and says they work, but his loads show a bulge at the boolit base which I don't like.

The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
