I said "PRETTY TIGHT" Never once did I say "Tight Chamber" Now, speaking of a factory rifle, it is obviously a SAAMI spec chamber, but they can very well be "pretty tight" Considering it was factory "for a factory chamber" goes without saying, at least to someone not trying to find a reason that this person could be wrong. You can use technicalities to make yourself appear to be better informed or know more but the bottom line is that if it is at or close to the minimal end of specs, it is indeed pretty tight. So You are "WRONG!" as you put it.
I am sorry to any who may read this, for engaging in this argument in public, but I will not back down when some seemingly pompous individual calls me out and I KNOW I am correct in what I am saying.
I made some suggestions and I left open the fact that any or all may not work. The basis of my suggestions was fully disclosed. He could take these suggestions and try them or not. It would only take one round fired to see if trimming the brass was the issue. If one single round at this point (after he has fired a few already) destroys his rifle, it was already seriously damaged. So to make it out like I had told him something unsafe is wrong on every account.
