Re: Shooting the M66 and M68

Tom, yes, I've read on this forum before about the chambers of .50 Trapdoor Springfields extending past what was necessary to allow the 50-70 cases to fit into. I'd forgotten about that though and find it interesting. I think that I too will start with longer cases and trim them down to 1.75" and see what happens. Now, has anybody here ever tempted fate and tried a slsightly larger powder charge in the longer cases, say 80 grains of ffg? Is it dangerous to do so? I certainly won't try it, but I'm wondering if anyone here has.
