I loaded a few Thursday A.M. and shot them in the afternoon. Accurate, FAST!! maybe 3000 fps, cycled action OK..or at least, locked the action back each time. Also, a LOT of muzzle flash with 51 grains of 335.
Couldn't use a clip, because the Lee crimping die won't crimp a bullet without a cannelure - so I used single-shot mode for fear of set-back.
I think my son and I are going to split an 8-pounder of the 4895 that Widener's is offering, and get some 150 grain Winchester cannelured bullets. I want to do this right. These little bullets are fun, but not what the rifle is designed for.
The cat just won't eat this week.
What pressure did they proof these barrels at?
