Am I the only one that thinks, “Whisky Tango Foxtrot, PRIMED brass for MUZZLE LOADING RIFLES?!”
Turns out these are for the .50 Caliber In-Line Remington Ultimate Muzzle Loader, (Hmmm, I wonder how sales are going?), built on the Model 700 action. They are supposedly 4 Inches long, and the specs are listed as, " Width: 2.1, Height 1.8, Length 4.0 ", and, “… a capacity of 200 grains of BP”.
Uhm… WHAT the EFF? Ya’ gotta’ love the advertising, yea?
With a bore of .50 caliber, and a bolt body diameter of .695"/17.65 mm, and outside diameter of the action being 1.348" the stated dimensions make no sense to me.
I found these notations: “With the correct reloading equipment, these brass casings can be re-primed after firing with a set of .308 dies.”, and, “… a lengthened .45 ACP case.”. Well, that does not make them anywhere near 4" long… maybe the length of a .45 Col, .454 Casull, or .45 Winchester Magnum?
Anyone want to tackle that?
