    I seat mt bullets according to what each gun likes, or shoots most accurately. It's not simply a scenario of seating bullets out the same for each gun. I play with starting touching the rifling, and slowly seat them slightly back to see what shoots...

    Yes, the cartridge is actually the .38-55 Ballard, not a Winchester cartridge. So guessing he's got a .38-55 Ballard chambered High Wall.

    They still list a lot of .40 cal. octagon barrels. They're under BPCR tapered octagon barrels. I've bought numerous .40 and .45 caliber tapered octagon from GM. ...

    Per an email reply from Browning the B92 were .357 and 44 Mag. only. I have seen one rebore and one rebarrel in 45 Colt.

    It's been done as early as the 60's but the real issue is fouling problems with the larger cases. The 17 Remington is a prime example. The smaller case 17 Hornet and 17 Fireball don't seem share this issue. It also depends on intended usage. Fox...

    Between the virus and the social unrest the manufacturers can't keep up. Most distributors are out of anything remotely reassembling a self defense firearm. Since February over 2 million new first time purchasers.

    Contact John Taylor here and ask him if he thinks it's doable. He's done chamber sleeving before, and could tell you if yours is one that could be done.

    One could bore the chamber on the 8x58 and then sleeve it down first. Then bore out the rifling and re-rifle it to the .40 caliber. Then simply ream the chamber to the new case you want. Saves setting back the barrel, and saves money for the cost of...

    Bottleneck cartridges like the .44-77 SBN make it even easier to chamber since the bottleneck allows the cartridge to enter the chamber at an angle. It's the long, straight wall, large diameter cases that create issues. The .40-82 might be one that...

    The 17 HMR was first than the 17 Mach 2 than the 17 WSM. I have the 17 Mach 2 and the 17 HMR. I shoot the 17 HMR the most. I am heading out of state tomorrow to shoot prairie dogs. The 17 HMR is awesome for under 175 yards on PD's on a claim...

    As stated by some the RB does have AOL issues with longer cartridges. This is strictly from memory and I am not a RB guy but I believe 45-90 is about the limits without having to modify the hammer nose. ...

    Does it work? Yes, as you pointed out most of the time it does. Is it less than ideal yes. The same can be done some bottleneck higher pressures bottleneck cartridges is some actions/chambers. With straight wall lower pressure cartridges the...

    The maximum length has more than just length to consider. Rim and base diameter come into play also. A smaller rim and base diameter will clear the breech block easier, and allow longer length. But the block contour also affects what length and...

    Back in the mid 70's when I was doing 357 Herrett all I had was a Lyman Universal Trimmer. With normal pressure it took a month of Sundays to cut them to length. I discovered if you really jammed the cutters in each tooth would cut a nice curl and...

    Not really. It just means the extractor is long enough to hold the case secure enough to fire. It fairly common for the 10mm crowd to shoot 40 S&W in their guns https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/40-in-a-10mm-glock/

    Primers normally don't denotate with a slow compression. I have tested this several times by squeezing them flat in a machine vise. My guess is the crimp held the primer until enough pressure was applied and it popped in with sufficient force and...
