This has a cheeked fairly nice sporter stock. It is not 7.62 Nato. The round will chamber, but

I'm not sure where to ask this question so I'll start here. I have a friend with a fairly nice
sporterized mauser. It is an Argentine of some sort and the reason I don't give all the numbers

Thanks for all the great info. The hydro method did look like a mess, and you still have the

When I first was given equip and supplys (my favorite uncle passed and left it to me), there

Thanks for all the good info. Just by the look and feel of them, I would have guessed the
plated had the thicker covering. So much for guess work. I'm glad I have never "pushed"
anything as far as max...

HOLY COW! MORE variables! I have never read, or heard or paid attention to there being a

hardness thing? ...

I don't have any photos as I cleaned everything up. Gun is a Raging Bull, long barrel with
factory comp holes. The bullets that did this are completely copper coated (base too). What

bullets are Berry's "premium swaged-precision plated" FP @ 210gr, and Hunter's Supply SWC (2
wax grooves) @ 215gr. I started at 16gr H110, then 17,17.5 and the last I shot was 18gr. I
noticed the "spr...
