    Bear in mind tha the RB chamber was designed for the 227grain round nose bullet and cut long accordingly (@" freebore or better).

    It appears there's much to "bear in mind" with this old cartridge.

    Ok - enough! I haven't shot mine in almost five years, but this is my incentive. Great info.

    You can learn from those who have made it work 100% or go invent the wheel again all by yourself.
    It is a rifle from a time when a decade ment the difference between cutting edge design and obsolete.
    So there are inherent mistakes, by todays standards, in the design and if you steer around those it will be a tackdriver.

    Interesting to see you shooting .005 oversize boolits. I am running cast in my 8x56r Hungarian which slugs .332 but the Lee .338 bullets chamber with no issues, so that is what I'm loading with. A full .006 over. Buckshot had some pretty good results doing this as did others.

    I've had similar issues with H4198 and don't use it anymore as I just don't do fillers in smokeless. Personal preference only.

    I've switched to higher charges of slower powders and so far the results are good.

    Don't know who said it but I try to adhere to it, "learn from other people's mistakes, you'll never live long enough to make them all yourself".
