Range failure - major FTE

2495 Views 29 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  Metallicat
I drove over an hour to the range today only to have the 3rd round completely lock up in the chamber. I was using Tubb's finishing ammo. I brought my firearm to a gunsmith and he was able to extract the round. It suffered from an LPS (never fired), and the shoulder was too wide which caused it to seize. The tip of the round is also slightly impacted from chambering. I called Tubbs and they want me to send pics.

It's a little like taking your Briggs & Stratton and balancing & blueprinting it. OK if you want too, but to what end?
Blowing abrasives into a close tolerance piston system isn't generally a good thing.
Bolt action systems with the potential of 1/4 minute accuracy are what these things are made for.
