Why not fix it right? Either call Ruger,, and politely explain the issue, request they fix it & send a pre-paid shipper to you?
Failing that,, then you could get either our own member 2dogs to ream the chambers with a proper tool, and if he doesn't have the 480 tools,, then a guy over on the cast boolit forum by the name of Dougguy can do it. it's NOT a hard to fix issue.
Alrighty, Have found Contenders opinions always worth listening to. Call made. Box n label heading this way. Asked as to when made, was told just a few weeks ago in July ! Time to process all the shot up brass, Hornady, back to lite loads for the BSBH's. The Starline brass was ordered earlier this am along with more Speer SP's. One my BSBH's should go back, this is getting old. It may be cheaper to run the tooling longer, let go all of the inspectors and QC people and keep your fingers crossed you only have to replace X number of crap pcs.. When my friends turned 21 they went drinking. I went and bought a Single-Six. Followed by a 44 SBH, followed by.. Am not a happy customer no matter the outcome.
Saturday. Both the box and label from Ruger AND the Starline brass and Speer 325gr SP's showed up in the mail ! Decisions decisions.. Just send the gun, or load similar loads in the Starline brass vs the Hornady brass that has been used, and try.. Think my head is gonna explode.
Yup, a sometimes fix, the Starline brass. A further thought to switch from a Power Pistol load to 2400 which will do the same at less pressure. Will together dome loads while I wait and can test thru the 2 BSBH's.
Nothing. I shoot nothing but 385-420 grain bullets with H110. I just accept it as the nature of the beast. And usually during hunting season the temps are 60 to 70 degrees cooler and it isn't near the issue.
Some is good,more is better and too much is just enough.
STICKY EXTRACTION My fired brass should re-insert into the chamber, and do so at various degrees of rotation.
Chamber aberration comes in a few flavors: waviness in chamber wall; excess roughness. chamber diameter greater at case mouth that at base. Waviness is visible. Roughness is visible. A flared chamber----crimp area larger diameter than base area----may not be visible. High pressure reduces ability of brass to bounce back.
I’ve seen Super Redhawk .480 chambers which looked pretty smooth and SRH .480’s with wavy chambers. Metal must be removed to correct a wavy chamber, not a viable solution. David Bradshaw
