    Berger 215 hybrid target

    My Berger book(first edition) does not have the 215g bullet but it does have the 210g and the 230g. Loads for Retumbo are not listed. I assume the reason is that Berger considers it a very slow option for the 210 or 230g bullets in the 300RUM. I'd go to the Hodgdon powder web site for load info. A tip when trying any new load. Find your bullet touch on the rifling and always start your load at a minimum of ten thousands off the rifling. Hornady makes a bullet seating guage and there are others that will render great results when looking for a proper seating depth. It is very dangerous to try any load with the bullet jammed into the rifling! A safe load can turn into a very unsafe load with the bullet jammed!!
  2. Gre-Tan gunsmithing in Colorado does fantastic bolt jobs. Greg does accurate precise work with good turnaround time. Greg Tannell owner.
  3. I think you have more than a carbon ring. You also have a throat full of carbon. I think what you are seeing is not rifling marks on that sharpie marked bullet it's carbon in the throat. Note the irregularity. Use Bore Tech C4 on every cleaning to prevent any carbon build up. Also use a phosphor bronze brush with a bronze core to clean that carbon ring on every cleaning. Use a brush that;s larger than your bore to do an effective job on the carbon ring. So for your 6.5 you would use a .284 or 7mm brush and spin that brush till carbon ring is gone. Spin the brush on the cleaning rod with your fingers. Do not use a drill to spin it. JB bore paste will help but I doubt the Kroil will do anything. On the throat you would use a 6.5 phosphor bronze brush with JB bore paste. You have one heck of job ahead. I start every cleaning by patching with C4 till the black is gone. Then I spin an oversize brush and clean the carbon ring out. I then dry patch the C4 out and then follow with two patches of Sweets, let Sweets stand for 10 minutes and then brush with Bore Shine 4 stokes for every shot fired. I then run a patch of Hydrogen peroxide to neutralize and foam out copper and powder fouling. And then I dry patch till patches come out clean. Finally I run a patch with Kroil as a bore conditioner. This regimen is for factory barrels. For my custom barrels I use C4 and patch the bore till the carbon is gone. Then I spin an oversize brush with C4 to remove the carbon ring and then dry patch. I then follow with a brush to remove any copper and then dry patch till clean. Sounds like a lot of work but it's all bore scope verified to be the best bore cleaning regimen ever! A clean bore will win matches and kill what you are aiming at. Two very important things when you clean never mix any chemicals and dry patch each chemical out before going to the next chemical with the exception of the Sweets and the Butch's Bore Shine which are both copper removers. Never clean without covering your scope lenses and never clean without a good bore guide. I use only Lucas bore guides but Possum Hollow bore guides are also good. Do not use one of those one size fits all bore guides. By the way I don't think the cleaning pellets are going to get into that throat or chamber neck.
  4. How many rounds down the bore? 350? You could have carbon build up in the throat. What's your cleaning regimen and what products do you use? I'm in Tucson and I have a bore scope. I would be glad to inspect for you. PM me.

    Chargemaster Lite

    I doubt that RCBS will consider your warranty void, give them a call. If you go out to buy new, the Frankford Intellidropper is a good unit on the less expensive side.. The A&D FX120i with the Auto trickler and Auto Drop is an awesome combo. With that said whatever you buy make sure you have it hooked up to clean power source. No fluorescent lights nearby is best. Plug your digital powder scale/dispenser into a good power surge suppressor like the Tripp-Lite Isobar with a Tripp-Lite line conditioner. I've never had a problem with any of my digital scales since I started using the Tripp-Lite products. I have a Chargemaster and check weigh my charges with a tuned Ohaus beam scale. I use a Dandy Trickler for finishing up my powder charges. Many great options out there that will last a lifetime of reloading.

    I don't see a bolt release. Does it have one?

    Barrel vs velocity?

    If you made no powder change the amount of unburned powder particles would radically increase in the 18 inch barrel to the point your chronograph would be reading the ejecta and not the actual bullet. The ejecta is moving much faster than the bullet. This is quite common and misinterpreted.

    He is coming to Arizona

    Yavapai county and Mojave have declared themselves "second amendment sanctuaries". Maybe this should be a statewide effort to keep people like "Mini Mike" Bloomberg out! He wants a box to stand on during the debates, LOL!! He's a runt that will never go anywhere in the next election!!
