Just remember there's gonna be a whole lot of things to list on the positive side of having a 270 AM so I think the positives will outweigh the negatives.

Although the bad thing is that one negative with the wife will be equal to several positives. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Very important tip that I forgot to mention to you Roy, do not use the wifes cooking sheets or load in the kitchen or anywhere around your wife for that matter!!! They already think we are crazy, why prove it to them!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
My wife thinks I am a nut when I wawlk out on the deck and touch off five rounds of fireforming loads. The first time I think she was about ready to call the cops on me thinking I was throwing bullets into her lawn!!!
Now she just thinks I am a little off! She knows me pretty well!
Keep us posted as to how that old Rem shoots.

Remember to clean the barrel afterwards. That is a whole lot of powder that has to be scrubbed out of there and it is not too very clean burning. The barrel will also get warm and needs to be kept cool. I lost two cases out of a hundred from split necks which is not too bad considering the amount of reduction the necks went through.
Take a flashlight and look into each case. If the chamber gets hot it will heat the brass and the cornmeal will "melt" into the shoulder on the bottom part of the case. A bent peice of wire can be used to scrape it out. Otherwise the cornmeal will cause a reduction in case capacity.
