My bad, I couldn't resist. I could just envision and newcomer to the forum logging in and reading a post about a reload measuring to see if his bullets grew any. They definitely would have thought we were "HuntingNuts"!

Well, got my arm in a sling so I can't hunt and there ain't much on TV. After several hours I haven't seen any changes, yet...

Looking at the pic, were these all fired in your gun only?? The reason I ask is some cases have markings at the neck and taper and some don't have any!!

Pkslinger, maybe they need water or more sunlight? Great picture of you watching them "grow".

Omini, good question! I have two .260s so they may have been fired in either gun, I honestly can't remember. Cases were full length sized before loading though.

The marks on the neck look like die marks from resizing.

I did that with some 3006 rounds once and had to buy a 50 caliber rifle to shoot the darn things - they really grow with the right "fertilizer" water and sunlight.
(speaking of "fertilizer"...

Maybe its a good thing you got them out before they grew into 20mm explosive rounds mate...although they would have been an awful lot of fun.

Wow, Sling how long ago was it that we met up at the gun show in Charlotte? Must have been something like 10 or 15 years, that or you ran out of Grecian Formula for beards. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Sorry, could not help yankin your chain a little, oh, maybe its worrying all about them growing bullets. Confused

Les, its been a bit since we met in Charlotte! Couple of years maybe? And my whiskers sure have grayed up on me! I'm not sure if its due to worrying about growing bullets or growing govt...
BTW, there is another show in Charlotte Feb. 18-19. Any HuntingNuts interested in meeting there?

Slinger, that sounds like a great idea and I will plan on meeting you there allowing I can walk that day. If I can't I will let you know as soon as possible.
