Morris from RST fame was at the Vintagers walking around on Thursday. We asked what the long pole in the tent for RST was and he said he still had powder issues and didn't see that changing as long as the war in Ukraine was humming. Some Vendors have RST 12 gauge in the big tent. They are 20 per box and one fellow had 4 flats for sell yesterday. There continues to be lots of folks continuing to ask about getting the chambers on their guns extended to 2 3/4". I think for a field grade shooting condition gun that's not a bad idea if there is enough meat there to safely do it. However, doing anything with high condition guns in regards to lengthening chambers is risky because not every gunsmith who can lengthen the chambers take the necessary time to see how much meat is in front. I believe sometimes when you go dancing with the Devil the Devil wins. YMMV for sure.

No good reason to lengthen chambers you don't gain enough to take a gun out of proof ,but it's your gun do what you want

Morning,

Watched two fellows shooting 5 stand yesterday at the Vintage cup and both using Shenk shells. They were shooting next to fellows shooting RST ammo. There IMO was certainly a much louder crack with the Shenk then there was with the RST ammo and watching carefully there appeared to be more barrel whip with the Shenk. Very small sample I know, but I was a bit surpised of the difference between the two. PS. That 5 stand is pretty brutal. I'd say about 75 percent of the targets were over 45 yards.

I say extend the chambers to 2 5/8" and shoot low pressure 2 3/4" loads. I like the B&P Comp 1's in 7/8oz myself. Also Clever make a 2 3/4" load at about 1160 FPS.

Headstamp on the Shenk ammo is ORBEA. A Google search indicates this is a Spanish company, of which I’m not familiar. Primer appears to be Cheddite. There is a plastic basewad.
