I'm sure they will honor it.Think I'll take Lee up on their guarantee
Well, there are other factors and while some may be overcome by spinning it faster, increasing velocity to increase RPM's will have a minimal effect.1. It aint being spun
2. It aint being spun fast enough
Doubt it though. Once it keyholes it's history.Also, try it at 50 or 100 yds. It may not have setteled down at 25 yet.
I was just going on what the original poster had described:If you mean a full sideways keyhole, I agree with you
Here is a better dissertation on bullet flight and supported with doppler radar calculations. The Lost River explanation seems to be more about selling a bullet design than anything.8 key-holed at 25 yards
That seems to be an accepted fact across the board. That wobble as the bullet leaves the muzzle can be caused by a poor bullet fit to the barrel, a misaligned throat and I suppose some other things. A soft lead bullet is even more prone to the consequences of a poor fit.and the slugs will wobble before settling down
Tomtomaldridge said:This is a NEF Buffalo Classic in .45-70, using 30-31 grains of AA 5744, and it's a fine shooter with other bullets, both jacketed and cast. This rifle has a short throat, and I haven't fired many heavy bullets with it. The Lyman Postell is about the only heavy bullet I've tried. The mold is inexpensive, easy to use, and makes a pretty bullet. The shipping charges make sending the mold back a foolish endeavor, not to mention the fact that it works exactly as it's supposed to work. So, having re-considered, I will slug the bore, make some 20:1 bullets, and try them. In the meantime, I'm thinking of trying the Hollow Base mold. There are a lot of positive reports on it from other shooters.
