Re: Is shooting a 300 BO through a .40 pistol can OK

One of my first suppressors was a Yankee Hill Cobra M2 in .40 pistol can. Bought it 12-14 years ago. It is a heavy steel stake driver of a can. One of my 300 BOs is a heavy barrel bolt gun so weight is not an issue. My gut feeling is as long as the caliber is larger than the bullet I would be OK. A...

Re: 110 gr subsonic

There is no immediate danger, but CFE is unpredictable with low density loads. It shows up with extreme velocity spreads. The other thing to watch out for is that it burns very poorly, so you end up with a lot of incompletely or unburned powder in your suppressor and fire control group, trigger. Pow...

Re: Seating bullet deformation

That’s probably more than a stem fit issue.

As TR said compression is a likely cause.

The other possibilities are too tight of a neck, or a seating die that crimps adjusted too far down. If the crimp starts too soon, it will be interfering with the seating of the bullet.

Any interest in resurrecting this thread/challenge?
Always interested in a reason to shoot, not much time lately.

New thread or pile on in this one?
New might be cleaner.

Is there a formula for determining the RPM a bullet is traveling using velocity and twist?
12/twist X velocity X 60 = bullet rpm.

12/5 X 2200 X 60 = 316,800

12/7 X 2200 X 60 = 226,285

Re: 350 Legend

Any one else shooting this one?? I bought a Ruger Bolt as soon as one was offered. Deemed it a dumpster fire Winchester created probably from a bunch of "9mm is awesome and has now equal" types. Any how I justified it in my brain as a cast bullet fun. I cast and powder coat and this along with my r...

Re: Longest 300BO barrel?

The difference between an 18 & 24" barrels with factory Barnes 110 ammo is just over 150 fps. about 2570 fps in the 24".

With 110 Vmax handloads in a 24" bolt action, 2800 fps is not out of the question.

People without experience should not speculate
