A side note on freebore.
Weatherby uses lots of freebore to hold down pressure and increase
I heard a man complaining about his 30/378 blowing primers at a gun
shop and had to know why because this is a very bad situation.
When I ask him what kind of rifle he had and he replied very strongly
"IT.s A CUSTOM rifle
so theres nothing wrong with it" .And after asking
who the smith was I knew the smith and his reputation is impeccable,
Turns out that the owner had heard all this bad press about freebore
and told the smith to go with standard freebore.
NOTE" with any standard freebored rifle chamberd in Weatherby caliber's
factory ammo is very hot.
So two things happened to him ,he had to load down and he lost velocity
( the reason for going to Weatherby in the first place )
No question that seating the bullet close to the lands is good for accuracy
but a rifle with freebore can be set up to be very accurate.
Just a side note to my other post
