    one you build one they typically take a little while to break it due to the tighter tolerance of the 42.

    Cloth belt? 7.62 links or 3006 links? Which muzzle does he have on the gun, the cone or the normal? I assume 7.62 by 51 setup?
    Make sure it's headspaced correctly both for safety and reliability.

    He was using Wolf, but also tried good brass stuff. He is probably going to swallow his pride and take it to a gunsmith.
