On 9-12-2003, I shot these handloads in a 1938 Turkish Mauser [that I rebarreled to 243]
Not only did I have to pound the bolt open, I had to pound a case out with the cleaning rod.
There was probably some neck pinch. It took about 100 pounds of force at the bolt knob to get the round to chamber.

All three were the same load 40 gr 4895 100 gr 243, LC brass necked down to 243.
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
