Jay- water boils at 212 degrees, Farenheight.That, sir, I will agree with.

Sir.... I simply stated that many steels are tempered at temps in the low 200 Degree range,
which is true. re 4140 .... that's but one of many families of steel, and I believe I indicated
an average o...

Respects sir, but your numbers are incorrect. Machinery's 24th edition Handbook (page 478-479)
lists no carbon steels that require heat treatment in excess of 1700 degrees, and all the SAE
Carbon and ...

I wouldn't say it's un-shootable, but many steels are tempered at temps as low as 210 degrees

properly designed magazine system that contains a properly heat-treated spring, and is
undamaged, should not...

I don't think you're correct. I've read in multiple places that it's good to downstack a
