Bullet diameter vs. Bore diameter
I've got a quick question. Seems most statements I've found here suggest .001 to .002" larger bullet than bore diameter, for cast bullets.
However lots of people also recommend .460" diameter bullets. So am I to assume that most people's bores measure .458"?
So if I have a smaller diameter bore,(grove diameter) then I should use a smaller bullet?
It just seems to me that if I have a barrel that is sized to say .456" and I shoot .460" cast bullets, then the rifling would "scrape" off quite a bit of lead once the bullet is being forced into the barrel.
I'm trying some cast bullets with different diameters to see what my gun likes in order to get as little leading as possible.
I know each gun is different, and must be loaded as such, just wondering what the consensus was regarding this issue.
