Re: Bullet Tumbling issues on inline
Back when i was young and foolish[well more foolish then now],I traded a 30-30 lever action for a very nice 30-06 bolt action. It as sporterized army rifle! It was a real looker.
The young man said he could not hit anything with it.After a lot of loads and bullets,i found him to be right!!!! If i hit the paper they key holed. I took it to my friend,the gun smith and he slugged the barrel. I was to find out that the bore was a 311,not 308,the bullets were to small and this sounds like your problem?
I would take the breech plug out and slug the barrel!
