Bored on a snow day...

Got bored and necked up the .223 Remington to .257" and .277". Neat results to say the least.

So, what do they call a .223 necked up to .277?

How exactly are the results "neat"? This thread is useless without a gun to shoot them through. I could neck a .50 BMG down to accept a .17 caliber bullet but all it would be is a paper weight...

Well the way I look at is that's a waste of powder for that much overbore.

Course this is just what my friend John says. Barrel life may not be the only thing predicted by the ratio of powder capacity to bore cross-section area. John thinks that if we look at our most accurate cartridges, such as the 6 PPC, and 30 BR, there’s some indication that lower Index numbers are associated with greater inherent accuracy. This is only a theory. John notes: “While I do not have the facilities to validate the hypothesis that the case capacity to bore area ratio is a good predictor of accuracy — along with other well-known factors — it seems to be one important factor.”

Rex, and anyone else interested in accurate rifles should read The Secrets of the Houston Warehouse

I've read about that before, pretty sweet. That took the wind out of a lot of BS excuses people use.

It probably would at about 950 meters, after it slowed down to 3,500 fps or so :lol:

But you could kill five squirrels with head shots at 3 miles. Totally worth it.
