How well do they hold up to the heavy loads? I am thinking of it for hunting with and shooting primarily heavy cast bullets.
Thanks for any input.
I had a friend years back that had one and I got to shoot it a few times. It seemed well made and beefy enough. While I don't think I would run super hot "Ruger" loads through one I don't see how moderate use of regular heavy hardcast loads would hurt.
