That's why the title is wow!
I do stuff ear plugs in the muzzle and foam rubber and frog tape off the inside of the action. I burnished the crown to remove the dura-coat.
I can't explain it. Just glad it stopped. I have never experienced it.

Maybe the crown ended up with a little ridge for the paint ? The crown can be very sensitive with flat base bullets.

Let's call it that. But they are boat tails.

Re: Barrel Conditioning "Wow"

Your killing me... Since when is a 40gr 223 bullet a boat tail ? I have loaded lots of 55gr Vmax bullets and if there is a boat tail it is smaller than what I can recognize ?

55gr

40gr

Admittedly, the 40gr image shows what looks to be a visible boat tail, but in the 55gr literature they claim a boat tail too...

Oh Well...

I don't want to kill you, let's call it a semi-boat tail.
