On that note, I saw a nice yellow-laminate NEF in 30-40 just a day ago on a used rack in town. I know where (who) it came from, I just cannot afford it right now. And it's buggin' me really bad. That gun needs to go to a nice home.before I bought the RMEF from Wally
Thanks Jerry. I appreciate your kind words and support.MtJerry said:I have been watching this ever the last few days and I appreciate all the comments and suggestions.
Cougar, don't let this thread get you too riled up ... this is just a thread to think out loud. Others will have different opinions and that's the joy of the gun forum ... toss things around and look at them from a lot of angles before you make a choice. I have taken your words to heart as I have the others.
I should have pointed out at the beginning that I have a particular bullet in mind for this project if I choose to pursue it.
Lyman 358315 - I have one that is a hollow-point version. My goal is to get this shooting around 2000fps.
I have a pre-81 Browning BLR in 358 that I have been playing with over the past year and I have come to really appreciate the round itself.
I know the 1:18 twist is a bit slow, but this bullet already works very well out of that twist now in my 357 max and I am pushing it to 1800fps and getting wonderful accuracy.
Sure there is...Just ask S.A.M.M.I. about it...that's all they shoot We just don't hardly ever get the same twice...and not to mention depth of the rifling...how smooth it is...wither the chamber is ok...Way to many variables to worry about .001" difference for those fine looking cast bullets there...JP, I don't think there is such a thing as a "true" .357" or .358" bore, dimensions in rifle bores can vary enough that the standard for either is moot concerning the .001" difference.
