Title: 2 groove BAMM rifle
Post by: Blackfoot on December 01, 2015, 09:03:21 AM
Anyone have experience shooting lead bullets in a 2 groove '06 barrel?  Good, bad or ugly!

Thanks,
Blackfoot

No experience with 2 grooves, but Cast Boolit site has lots of comments about them.  Sometimes a little harder to find a cast boolit that shoots well, but not impossible, according to them.  They are reported to like a long and fat nose design.

  Blackfoot we have had good results with lead bullets in the 2 grove barrels.  I have several Springfield 1903 & 03A3's that shoot 1 to 1 1/2 MOA using lead bullets pushing them @ 1550 FPS.  I use Federal Large Gold Medal Primers and IMR 4759 Powder and a Gas Check Lead Bullet.  I have one 03A3 with a 4 grove barrel and I get the same results.
