Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

Those bullets in factory loads are the reason the two rifles in the video had blow outs . They also my be the reason another guy , in another video , had blow outs in two Vetterli's . He did not understand either . I bought 1000 of the Hornady bullets when they first came out and tested them in many...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

The bad bullet is the .2675 Hornady 160 round nose . Tell Graff that is not the bullet used in some of their loaded ammo , since THEY say it is . Also Graff used the Privi made and headstamped cases . Hornady's load does NOT fix the problem . Over the years the land and groove dia used on Carcano's ...

Re: Finished collection, now what?

The cost of shooting the 98 k's was just a fraction of the two of us shooting at least 100 rounds through over 5000 military rifles .

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

The guy in the video has no idea what the problems are . So far in every thing I have seen on ytube " the guys " have no idea what they are doing , that is why they are on ytube . Look in the reloading section here under " cast bullets for Carcano's " and I covered it a little .

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

Yes the 300 is a .223 rifle killer . The same thing is happening to the 6.5mm Carcanos .

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

The rifles did not " blow up " . Both bolts held , neither the barrels or receivers failed . The cases had primer blow outs that released the gas pressure into the mag wells , cracking stocks and wood inserts and swelling the magazine housing on one . Unlike the guy who made the video , I do know wh...

Re: Patching w/ teflon tape ?

If the tape forms a flapping tail from being dialogged it most certainly will cause accuracy problems as it has happened to my .40-65 bullets when I tried tape years ago. I tried all the "tips" written about since the 60's and the only thing that has ever worked well was 18 pound bond paper and pow...

Re: Movie rifle anachronism

An US Krag would not be correct , but close as a guard would have used a European Krag ,,, or Berthier . The two most common guard rifles .

Re: Patching w/ teflon tape ?

Teflon tape is so thin and weighs nothing , it does not really effect the balance or airflow of the bullet . Since copper has mass , is strong enough to interfere with air flow and would have to be fitted perfectly , no it would not be good .

Re: Patching w/ teflon tape ?

It is used as "lube " and to protect the base of cast bullets . Jacketed bullets do not need help with either of those problems .
