    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...

    the base price of a lee 6cav is $36.99 so say we got 10 people on board that would be (roughly) $15.00 per person share of the set-up.

    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...

    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?
