    4.5 grains of Red Dot, pistol primer, 158 grain SWC sized .360" for Microgroove. Don't recall ever getting shoulder pushback, but it was a loooong time ago.

    I have photos of a receiver block like that I got from Bullshop (I think). I once bought a nice carbine from him, which I still have. It's a fair bit of machining for a little bench-top mill like...
