Re: Returning castor, 500 S&W

OK, I read all your articles and as many posts as I could find time for today. I measured my barrell, land to land, groove to groove, and the chambers. This is on a S&W 500 Performance Center with 7.5" barrel. I was bummed to find that the chambers are .500 and the grove to groove diameter ...

Re: Returning castor, 500 S&W

If someone asks for advice, then it's not micro managing. I'll go rethink the whole design - I'll post on another part of the forum here for advice. As I mentioned I have been using a bullet I got from Richard Gibson as a model and I can't even detect a seperat 'front' band above the crimp groove. I...

Returning castor, 500 S&W

I'm trying to desighn a bullet on your program and have come up with a couple of questions. This is for a S&W 500 with 7.5" barrel. I'm trying to come up with a "bore rider" 600 grain bullet. I have a sample bullet I got from Richard (Ranger Rick) Gibson that I'm using as a model....
