Default Dang 357 loads too hot...

Shot these through my new to me Talo barreled gun today. This one has a SB1 frame. These are loads i shot through my SB2 357 max reamed gun with no issues. Loads are just over max of 296 with a 158 grain JHP but not even 100% of capacity.



Guess that's the difference in SB1 vs SB2? Or what?? Pity. They sure are accurate.

I would say its a difference of a small firing pin compared to a large firing pin.

Real trucks dont have spark plugs.

The one on the right looks like the firing pin is a loose fit in the hole. It's a receiver issue, not a barrel issue.

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional , illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of cr*p by the clean end!

Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" really means.....

What primer? A switch to a thicker cupped SR primer may solve the issue. I had the same problem with one of my Maxi barrels on an SB1 frame(large FP) with factory Dan Wesson Maxi ammo, switched to SB2 and no problems, funny thing is I put my first 30-30 barrel on the SB1 frame and it worked just fine, the difference being primer cup thickness, LR primer cups are .027" thick, compared to .017"-.019" for the SP. SR primers run .019"-.025" thick.

I'll start poking around and see if i can find a BC cased reciever. Maybe i'll get lucky and find a pawn shop gun and use the stockset too!

There are differences in primers made by the same manufacturer. For example CCI primers. http://www.cci-ammunition.com/produc...imer_chart.htm

Check the Calhoun link I posted previously, it shows the cup thickness of all common SR primers. Also you have a PM.
