Playing with that bolt to get it just right to slip in -- and when all is right it does just slip in -- I decided to order one of those 20 caliber bore snakes. Figured I'd cut messing with the bolt...

I caused the problem by using the 5.7X28 brass. The neck is just long enough but the problem is the case body -- if the pellet popped into the body it's all over with. I'm using a german made pellet...

I don't remember the exact wording but I think PTG said it would be made to order so I was thinking I could ask for a small amount of throat or leade. Af course that statement by PTG may be a stock...

Do you know if the 5.5 Velo Dog is the same size as the 22 CCM?

I know this is a dumb question but I've googled and googled and can't find the cartridge specs on either cartridge. I've read that the Cooper Centerfire Magnum (22 CCM) is actually a rebirth of the...

Dang! I should have thought about that -- I have a case mouth flaring die. I guess since I've only used it with cast bullets it never crossed my mind. Thanks for that. For the two cases that got...
