Many years ago, in my early 20's, I had a 25-20 Win. 92 take-down model rifle. It would frequently split the brass (factory cartridges) on the first firing. Being a kid, I did not have the knowledge to investigate the cause at that time. However, if I had that rifle now, I would make a chamber cast using Cerrosafe as a first step to figure out what was going on.
Having the type of receiver that it has, it would be tricky, but not impossible.
Sometimes you get what you pay for, sometimes you only pay more for what you get.
Three shots are not a "group"...they are a "few".
If the Bible is the literal, infallible, unerring word of God...where are all those witches I am supposed to kill?
