PostSubject: Mountaineer is back   Tue 26 Nov - 21:39

UPS brought my Knight Mountaineer back today :)I was having terrible blow back issues as well as primers sticking in the bolt & the breech plug.

Barry called me before he sent the gun back. He replaced the bolt (3rd one) & a slightly longer breech plug (4th one) He fired 10 rounds using my load & primer set up & got zero blow back. He also sent pics of the breech area after each shot. It was spotless & never looked that clean before. I got the Vortex back on & boresighted & hope to get to the range tomorrow. hey are calling for a winter storm with several inches of lake effect snow possible. Thank you Lake Michigan for that!!

Anyway I'll try to get some groups on paper & then I have some Bloodline .458/275's on the way. Found someone selling them for a great price on another forum & I've wanted to try them anyway. I'm really looking forward to getting this rifle dialed in!

Great to hear Greg! Look forward to your report with the Mountaineer.  I killed a 7 pt. that weighed 185 lbs. with my Mountaineer. The load was 110 grs. BH 209 and 275 BE and a W209 primer. He did not take a step with the hard quartering away shot. The bullet did not exit but I could not find it either, but did find part of the jacket in the ribs on the other side. Not exactly what I wanted to see but you can't argue with it when they drop in there tracks!
