Any tests should use new brass
Why? Concerned the extractor deformed the rim? AFAIK this cartridge headspaces off the rim. And, isn't the "brass" steel?wreckhog said:Any tests should use new brass
That would be relaly helpful and I have a digital mic that reads tenths should you need it.ASSAULTFUN said:I bought the three gauges from okie. I will measure the three for reference, i do seem to remember the dif between go and no go being minimal.
This too, but it never hurts to check with a mismatched bolt/barrel combo. Personally I just try to avoid mismatched rifles so I can avoid the headache.Mad Russian said:Mosins headspace from the rim, so even a "loose" headspace measure will be OK. I have several Mosins, and have never bothered to headspace any of them, and they shoot fine. No split cases with either brass or steel cased ammo.
