    Carbon ring management?

    I run a very tight non turn neck on my Dasher. But when measuring the COAL on a clean barrel vs a 150 plus shots, it vary by about .015 in length. So when loading .01 from the lands wit my 70gr BT, after about 25 shots the bullet gets suck in the lands. I am not one to clean my barrel to...

    Magnum primer on 243AI

    Neck lenth vs Throat erotion

    Please help me understand why it is stated that longer necks make the throat last longer if all else is constant. Let’s use a .243 AI with 40degree shoulder. If you take that the shoulders is very steep and does not allow direct torching of the lands. The lands are far from the neck. The neck...
