Chamber and head space "Must" be minimum dimension for this to work but it can be done.
I find that Freebore and bullet jump can give me a very accurate and forgiving rifle that
does not tax the action in order to get velocity.
I am experimenting with a wildcat (Of my own design) and have already gone 6 grains over
the max listed load of Retumbo for an Edge with no heavy bolt lift or primer flattening. My free bore
in this chambering is .320 and all loads are just under 3.90 COAL.
I do adjust the COAL slightly to achieve the best accuracy but i never exceed the max mag
It is Just the way I set up my hunting rifles.
