For the R1 I can't say but I found that the Xtreme plated SWCs fail to feed in several guns that I own. I find that Cast lead has a different shape and feed much better.I'm trying to reload Xtreme 200gr plated SWC for my R1 Enhanced. So far, they regularly jam on the feed ramp. I've tried various OAL's, from about 1.2 to 1.25. Does anyone have an OAL that works in their R1?
I don't think the ramp was polished when I got it. It was covered with the same coating as the rest of the chamber. It has worn off after cycling many rounds and now has a polished look to it. Is this normal? I was thinking I may send it back to Remington under their free Platinum Service offer to be checked out.I was wondering if your feed ramp was polished and I used the wrong word. I should have asked how the throat of your barrel was, not the port, (sorry). Just thinking that the plating on the bullet is sticking on the feed ramp?
Thanks, I've tried several different OAL's, from very short to very long and haven't found a reliable one yet for my plated SWC. As mentioned, lead may be better and I may try a coated variety sometime.I don't own a R1 but when I first tried 200 grn lead SWC in my Kimber I had to go 1.265" OAL. It simply didn't like the SWC any shorter than that.
