Re: 300 WIn Mag confusion

Tikkamike.....you are the one that is 100% wrong. I NEVER said that the Savage had a tight chamber. I ASKED if possibly it had a chamber with less tolerance. There is a diffence between stating and king, and there is a difference between "tight" and "less tolerance". I can't help it that you misconstrue what I said.

i didnt say you did and I never said you were the one that was wrong... I was talking to CFVICKERS. He was the one that said maybe you had a tight chamber. I then explained to you that is was a SAAMI chamber. might go re read the thread. either way I am done here, good luck and back off the powder before you blow your rifle up.

Wow.....well, I am glad you're done here. If Savage rifles can't handle this load, then I need to get rid of the rifle, not the load.

Re: 300 WIn Mag confusion

I myself cheek and trim as needed every time . I also have a gauge to cheek seating depth . it all helps in the big mix of it all . I think Tikkamike just had a bad day he has given me some great advice in the past . and I see what he is saying a hand load that works in one might blow in another . in a .223 I show psi sings with a very light load but it will shoot factory loads that are hotter with no psi sings . always be safe and work up a load with a new riffle and that's some thing I truly believe and have taught my kids . That way we all can live longer to teach others .

Re: 300 WIn Mag confusion

CFVICKERS......max casing length is 2.62", so should I trim to 2.618 or less?

I obviously upset you which is understandable but it is what it is.

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.

Re: 300 WIn Mag confusion

No apology necessary CFVICKERS. I appreciate all of your input. Tikkamike was wrong about the length of my Ruger....it was a 24" barrel. So even if the LRH is a 26" because of the brake (which I am not certain of), this rifle should not have problems with the load I have simply because e size of the load. I trimmed the casings to 2.616 and I am going to try the same load. If it blows up, then you're right, there was a problem with the rifle to begin with. Some of my brass was up in the 2.63 range so I feel certain that the cartridge was getting a little jammed. I will let you know how it turns out.
