    What kind of case dude do you use? I have some .416 remington mag that have micro flutes in the cases from the lube.

    Yeah I should have put that first. I guess I about considered it a given.

    No worries. I’ve rebuilt a motor before only to realize a new plug wire would have solved the rough running issue.

    It was a good lesson to learn, that’s for sure.

    I’ve never owned a case gauge. This is the first time in 30 something years I’ve had a problem. Never blown a case except case separation during fire forming for Ackley rounds. Thousands upon thousands of rounds down range and through animals.

    Roll on Pad and I was considering trying the spray someday.
