    I measured the 'break away' torque after firing a few rounds and tighten to about 90% of that and call it good.
    And yes I lube the threads.

    Jackie, I got the box.

    With a hole in the corner LOL

    I hate to think what that 4lb hunk of steel did to the sorting mochine that busted the box!

    So I'll go buy a hunk from Metal Supermarkets and still try it

    Thanks

    What!!??

    That was a very nice piece of steel. Not something you can just buy off the shelf.

    That batch was ordered as E4340. We had the pieces normalized, then hardened and tempered to meet the specific strength level required.

    I feel your pain. I once received an empty cardboard tube with no Bartlein barrel. The delivery driver returned a few hours later with a very scratched up barrel that he found rolling around the bed of the truck.

    Well then, I hope they find it! My wife picked it up at the PO so they saw the damage....... and I described exactly what we were doing to the other PO lady when I bought the box directly from them. She said "tell the guy to just drop it in and seal the flap and send it down the road"

    Maybe next time I'll send a Pelican case
