    Whatever alloy is in the pot seems to work. Sized .311 or .312" - not fussy.

    To me, it's just an interesting "plinker". Are you shooting precision matches with yours?

    It isn't easy to tighten up a worn or sloppy '03 rear sight but it can be done if you have a light touch and go slowly.

    Your question indicates you may not be aware how little capacity difference there is between the .30/06 and 7.62x54R. Reduced loads for one cartridge are "safe" in the other.

    8 grains Bullseye is a good "rat round" charge - and if we goof and dump a double charge of 16 grains, that's not a bad load either. Bullets in the 180-grain neighborhood are fine.

    Dimensions resemble the U.S. .50-45 Carbine round (based on a short .50-70 Gov't case). A bit long and ~.010" tight at the base, but not far off - especially if the .555" measurement wasn't taken...

    The classic benchrest/target answer: for accuracy, eliminate variation. Crimping introduces an added variable and is therefore omitted when not needed for feed/recoil/handling issues.
