    There are vessels of different size.

    Some just don't hold that much and therefore don't take quite as long to fill.

    Me too. And if I ever do rechamber one, I check the length against one from the box. I've seen some pretty bad setback on jhp.

    That's a quick and easy way to check for any change in OAL. Have to file that one away for future reference.


    I usually set them aside for practice/training, but this may give me an option for when 'extra' ammo isn't immediately available.

    The round is chambered until it goes bang or is ejected for gun maintenance/cleaning. When I get a new shipment of ammo sometimes I will exchange an entire magazine with the new ammo including the chambered round. But I'd say 2 to 5 times a year

    Until I shoot it, or until is shows setback, which I've only had happen once and that thing was chambered a LOT! The whole chambering a round once is way beyond paranoia.

    [QUOTE=tcox4freedom;447001]Mine stays chambered unless I'm cleaning or at the range. If if unchamber a SD round to use FMJs at the range I inspect the round and rotate to the bottom of the magazine. This has been my standard practice for several years now and I've not experienced any problems with setback.



    Pretty much the same as I do it.

    Completely agree. I've rechambered the same round countless times over a 6mo- 1yr period and only had it set back .003. I've never had a problem with it affecting anything.

    Maybe 2-3 times a year for cleaning otherwise new ammo range time.
