Re: Breech will not close

I had that happen with an early rifle that was chambered and sighted for shooting a 405 grain bullet. When I initially tried to load a cartridge with a 500 grain bullet, the longer bullet ran up against the rifling and wouldn't allow the cartridge to fully seat. I took a file and tapered my bullets and the breech block then seated itself nicely.
