Nosler - REM brass data point.

Was messing around this morning in pressure ranges that I shouldn't have

300 RUM cases in 270 AM

Here's what I discovered:

Nosler brass will blow primers before case extraction requires a small tool to extract the case from the chamber after the bolt is lifted by hand.

Remington brass requires a small tool to extract the case from the chamber after the bolt is lifted by hand but with greater force than is necessary for the Nosler brass (bolt lift, that is)

Only three 3 shots :o

FWIW

small tool

Hi Roy
Would you describe your small tool. Could you have done this three shot brass test without it. Just when I thought I had everything. Do you feel this something all LRHs should have on hand. Post some pics.
Thanks
Phil

Small Tool: Any solid object close at hand that is not a rock. Rocks will work but are hard on bolt handles.

This tool should not be needed by any LRH shooter. Loads should have been more appropriately developed. Plus it makes that second shot, if needed a real pain.:o


PS on the first post. The case head expands enough that the bolt has to be removed to leverage the case out of the bolt face (Sako extractor). Again this is with opening the bolt and pulling it back w/nothing but the hand.:confused:

A big roll of duct tape will work as a good hammer and doesn't mar nor scratch anything.;)

i remember hitting on the bolt handle with my hand last year and it came right up. only problem was the bolt never rotated. smith said it was a very poor solder job from the factory.
