    Have you made any progress on this? Sorry if I have missed this, but have you tested the difference between low velocity loads and higher velocity?

    Take a scientific approach; manipulate one variable at a time and record results. As you probably know, if you are tweaking multiple variables at one time, you cannot determine possible correlation. Take your time, work through potential causes one by one.

    Keen to hear how you go, the 1892 is, in my opinion, a very fine rifle that serves for both hunting and defense.

    Cheerio

    Haven't had time for any further testing.

    I have a win 76 and a win 86 both do the same thing with the primers on mine its the firing pin hole. They are big just the way they are still shoots fine. Ithink good brass and minimal sizing will help. Neck size only I have a Lee Enfield with excessive head space full lenth size brass life is no good neck size only they last a good long time cast boolit loads also.

    Slugged the bore tonight. Bore is rough as seen in the pic. Slugged at .315
    Pic is not the best as iPads don't have a flash.
