    Thanks for the feedback. I'll have my firing pin checked out. Sent from my SM-T500 using Tapatalk

    Overall Length/Short Chamber

    Below are pictures of my primers. The silver primers are CCI 200 and the gold one is Remington 9 1/2. I measured the case neck of a loaded round and a fired round. The loaded round was .360 and the fired round was .367. .007 clearance. I have not been bumping my shoulders back when FL...

    Overall Length/Short Chamber

    Correction. Tackdriver said to measure the neck of a loaded round and a fired round. So that's what I'll do. Sent from my SM-T500 using Tapatalk

    Overall Length/Short Chamber

    It doesn't shoot well. I've been searching with different powders but I'm not getting the performance I need/want. This is the load I'm currently working up per Hodgdon: 53.5 grains of BLC2 seated at 3.25. Per Hodgdon this should give me 2650 but I'm only getting 2537 with slightly flattened...

    Overall Length/Short Chamber

    I'll get some pictures in a couple of days of the primers. I can't seat the bullet to the maximum that the magazine allows as I would be .03 too long (would be seated way into the lands) That's why I'm asking the question as to whether this is an indicator that my chamber is to short, or not...

    Overall Length/Short Chamber

    I'm having some issues with cratering and flattening primers even when using minimum loads. I've been working up a load for a 338.06 with Nosler 210 grain partitions. The Nosler load data indicates seating depth of 3.33 OAL. I also referenced Hodgdon for the same bullet and powder and the...

    338-06 210 Partitions

    Thanks. I'll keep this in mind when powder starts showing back up again. Those are the velocities I am trying to reach. Sent from my SM-T500 using Tapatalk

    338-06 210 Partitions

    Thanks! I did not know 4320 was discontinued. That saves me some time. Sent from my SM-T500 using Tapatalk

    338-06 210 Partitions

    I appreciate the suggestion. I never hit any pressure signs with either of the max loads. I might use your suggestion to load in 1/2 grain increments to see what I can get out of the 4350. I've always had good luck with imr4350. On the other hand I've never had great experiences with 4320...

    338-06 210 Partitions

    Yesterday I was running some pressure and velocity tests in my rifle using imr 4320 and 4350 using 210 partitions in my 338-06. I was using Nosler's published load data to see what they produce in my rifle. My rifle has a 24 in barrel, but I was using CCI 200 primers. All cartridges were...
