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

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 .

Re: Movie rifle anachronism

A Mosin rifle or sniper is not out of place at all in D-day France . There were several divisions of troops armed with Russian weapons facing the Allies . Since Kelly's hero's were supplied by the Black market dealer { Crap game ] , he would have some of those items .

Re: Spanish 1916 7.62 ammo?

The ammo in the photo has not been tumble cleaned as you can still see the annealing . Surplus is surplus , some is crap , some is fine . Many factors to consider over 50 to 100 years . Fire a few and see how the case looks and how easy the bolt lifts . There is nothing wrong with loading down some ...

Re: Who is making .318" bullets?

That is all Buffalo does , alter Hornady bullets [ they are the easiest to work with ] , crush them up or squeeze them down . Good to know. Thanks. Not to hijack the thread, but do you have any insight about whether this crushing or squeezing does anything deleterious to bullet integrity? I hunt a ...

Re: Who is making .318" bullets?

+1 on Buffalo Arms. I bought some .287" 154-grain SPs from them a few years ago, for use in my Loewe Spanish m1916 with oversize bore. They shoot well (unlike the .284" 139-grain bullets that went all over the place). I killed a smallish hog with one a while back; it did the job exactly as expected...
