Re: New .30 Rem brass splitting necks !?

I was using Ken Waters best pet load from his book and had the same problem with split necks. I reduced the load by one grain and the problem went away.

Re: how were the earley pre 8s blued

I have a model 8 in "30-30 Rem" made in 1907, the first year of production for the 30 Remington. It doesn't actually appear to have been blued. It seems to have a finish that has a faint greenish tinge to it. I don't think it has been refinished, but I could be wrong.
