    I tightened mine as tight as I could - and thought about putting some locking fluid in there but haven't yet. If and when it loosens again I probably will.

    Tell me more ... especially about your setup. Why not a simple wind block? Partial wall? All depends on what your physical setup is.

    "Our Lord was amazingly in touch with the ordinary things of life" - that is one of the typical things that the hyperspiritual loose - the common touch. If we are in Christ we love others - not unconditionally as he did not love unconditionally -...

    The study of internal ballistics and external ballistics have literally filled multiple books! Yeah, you can get a doctorate in it. Complicated? You bet.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    Running the long bullets in the .260 for magazine feeding requires the bullet be seated in the donut area of the neck. This creates issues since most competitors don't want to inside neck ream. They much prefer to outside neck turn. The 6.5...

    I would recommend putting a ramrod down the bore, and comparing on the outside to see how much breech plug you have. The breech plug should have as much length as the bore diameter.
