After having to tear the bolt apart for the fifth time due to a piece of the pierced primer blowing out into the firing pin channel and tying the rifle up (and this is all just so much fun to do, especially out at the range), we quit for the day.

While I might be a slow learner, my learning curve isn't completely flat, and I studiously avoid shooting the Hungarian heavy ball in my PSL...

Just sayin...

Do you recall if it was copper wash or the grey lacquer cases?
