Gave up on HC in my R51
« on: October 04, 2017, 12:32:10 AM »
Whelp. I've given up on trying to find a Hard Cast Lead (HC) which works reliably in my R51.  After trying five (5) different HC bullet shapes and weights (115gr x 3, 124gr, and 125gr).  I broke down an ordered 1,000 115gr. FMJ from Rocky Mountain Reloading.

My picky-eater R51 has always seemed to like standard profile ogive 115gr. FMJ so I have high hopes.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

Of all the HC bullets I've tried, the most reliable feeding was those from SNS Casting.  It has a similar profile to the standard FMJ, just a tad shorter.  While they fed mostly OK, I still had occasional issues.  Every 2-5 mags, I'd have one or more feed problems with them.

I still don't have feed issues with factory FMJ.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk
