    Busing Bolt problem

    +1 on Neils work... did the same job for me.... cured my primer cratering issue.

    Sinclair gen 2 expander die body

    Anyone sitting on one of these they might want to sell?

    What primers are using in. 260

    CCI brs Muroms reduce ES but need careful and deep seating or else you will get failures on first firing where firing pin finishes incomplete seating. Not sure about future supplies due to sanctions on Russia.

    Winter 2018 Roundhouse Rifle Challenge

    How?! I looked at it as a 'chip-shot' and had plenty of time! Doooh 😃

    What bullet for .260 for an AI

    139g Scenar with 44.5g N560 works to 1000 and beyond...... usual load dev caveats.

    Case annealing machine

    Any info on dangers of 'splatter' from contaminants or moisture on the cases? I read somewhere that this is a major hazard with molten salts solutions.

    Precision Rifle League Officially Launched

    For anyone worried that this might just be for 'operators' or special forces wannabees.... its not. I can only speak for the Roundhouse but its what I would call friendly competition amongst like-minded shooters...its fun!

    Implications of case fill percentage

    Good info on this in Litz second book on modern advancements in long range shooting.
  11. If as you say the brass is FLS after firing then its not really fire-formed but put back to somewhere near original dimensions so pressure would be about the same. If neck sized only and fired in a generous chamber then you may see some pressure reduction.
  12. The HBN does leave a microscopic coating ...thats the point of it. It helps prevent the coarser fouling from carbon and copper doing its negative 'thing' as a result. There are extensive reviews on the web. Bottom line is ...it does no known harm, it DOES reduce fouling, it MAY produce a significant reduction in barrel wear particularly in the throat where the flame-erosion effect is most pronounced... especially in overbore cartridges like 6mm variants. Its not cheap to buy so a group order is best as you use minute quantities to coat bullets. You should not mix coated and non-coated bullets as you will get varying pressures..... do it or don't.
  13. I am using it in 260 rem and 6mm SLR in hopes of prolonging barrel life. With new barrels costing up to a grand fitted that makes huge sense to me! How to measure extra barrel life is the hard part. One thing it does FOR SURE is to radically reduce fouling. Its very easy to apply ... I will continue with it.
