    The manual just about explains barrel time as good as can be explained but let us break it down a little. Although I have a fair knowledge of External ballistics, my knowledge of Internal ballistics needs more study. For what it is worth, this is...

    frnkeore replied to a thread 8mm Mauser ??? in Military Rifles
    gew98 post is accurate. The actual, nominal groove diameter is 8.15mm (.32087). I know of no 98's that where barreled for SA with the Czech .316 groove barrels. 8.1mm (.3189) was the nominal civilian groove diameter. After WWI, you could have a...

    I just received my mold. Two days, can't ask for better service than that! Regarding removing the GC from the base. It's not that easy. I remove a lot of GC shanks, while it's possible to do it with a drill, as a machinist, I quiver at the...

    4227 is a excellent powder, used in reduced loads. In 30 years of using it in rifle calibers, I've never found it to be sensitive for temp or postion, when shooting BR. It dosen't need anything to hold it back, it will burn effectively. I don't...

    The program, Quick Load will do all that you ask. You change any or all Perimeters and get a resonable estimate of what might happen but, there are no absolutes, even with tested loads. Change the primer, primer lot, powder lot, case volume...

    I had a Norico SKS. It was the version that was being imported in the mid 90's, with a thumb hole stock, that took AK mags. It had a 16" bbl. I bought Lapua ammo for it (300 rounds), at that time for the Boxer brass, since I'm a hand loader and...

    Let me add something here, I've said this before but, not in this thread. I DO NOT advocate the heavily reduced loadings of H110/296 in revolver applications (more than 15%). It's use in revolvers is where this reduced powder phobia got it's...

    I don't own the Horaday #9 manual but, I just took a quick look through it while looking for powder. They give a fair amount of H110/296 loading data and I looked to see if there where any warnings, I specifically looked in the safety section and...

    Since I can't find any PUBLISHED CB data for the G11, I did some QL estimates for kind of standard loads, using the NOE 311 180 FN (K31), seated at the neck/shoulder junction, giving a 2.939 COAL. Since no one seems concerned about using...

    For 7.5 Swiss, i do not think there is any PUBLISHED reduced load data. Jacketed or cast, that I know of. We all take chances when we reload a cartridge case. We as humans, are not infallable. Motor, Can you cite the Hornaday manual and...

    4th edition of the Lyman Cast Bullet Manual, pg 43. One sentence of many about the subject is: "Neither Lyman or this writer (Mike Venturino) recomends the use of fillers in cast bullet loads." Frank

    I like this quote, a LOT. I would guess by this statement, that Larry is suggesting that we band ALL cars. I would also like to see the data on Larry's near SEE loads with 296/H110. I only know of him using it one time. Not to mention that he...

    This just isn't true! Starting with the 195 gr bullet, it was the 185 gr SAECO that you tested. Please review and re-post those results and please when you do re-post the results, post it in larger than postage size attachments, for all to see! ...

    It really bothers me that people make assumptions about 296/H110 w/o testing it. And at least one person has done limited testing of it, found it was safe and still makes negitive assumptions, regarding it. Speer has published jacketed, pistol...

    I assume that your talking about the Lee, Grain/Factor and Velocity/ Pressure ratio? If so, second YES, from me. I like what he has done with it but, a Excel program would be a lot better. Frank
