Re: TUBB Final Finish
So, last Monday night I called Midway... I got off easy, because I only ordered TWO items ! Thursday afternoon the big brown truck rolls up and drops off my package. I spent some time reading the TUBB instruction sheet, and the box carefully. I noticed a slight discrepancy, so I called TUBB to confirm. The gentleman answered all my questions, and gave me further advice. The system is supposed to work best when muzzle velocities are kept between 2200 and 2500 FPS.( rifle ). I spent a great deal of time looking for a powder and charge that would provide such a slow velocity. In an old book from IMR, I found a listing for IMR 4227 and 35 gr giving a velocity of just over 2400 FPS. Perfect ! The start charge of 32 gr is what I plan on using, and best of all, I have IMR 4227 on the shelf ! So now the fun starts. I get to load the rounds and go to the range. I bought a BIG bottle of Barnes copper solvent, and a handfull of bronze brushes. Over the next couple weeks, I'll get the work done, and find out how well it helped. I'll keep you informed of the progress.
