Hello, I'm new to inline boltguns. Only have 2. Bought first one 4 years ago. Can anyone tell me why so many people tape there plugs? See it done on all kinds guns. Break action etc. Is it because the plugs r loose fit? See it on bottom and top sealing plugs. Only plugs I've seen that it isn't done to r the ones with a rim at bottom of stem. Tried it on 1st one I bought and couldn't use it. Just wasn't enough space in threads. Ground it right off. 4 years latter I could use it though if I wanted. Thanks for replies. I've shot side locks for 50 years. Thought what the hec this looks fun too. Can't have to many kinds.
I do not use tape. I use nickel based anti-seize and am happy with it except it is messy on whatever it touches but words well for me. Have tried a number of other methods but returned to the anti-seize. To each their own however.

Well it seems I should read more carefully. Lmao! Completely ruined a custom fit asg plug. Hmmm! Should of read fine print. Caseys Birchwood case cleaner. Says 3 minutes. Dip solution. Mix according to directions. Wow! Guess what happens when u think alittle is good extra should work faster! And u put it in a sonic cleaner that really works. Looks like it boiling when I turn it on. Yep seems phosphoric acid and sulphuric acid concentrate r not friends with asg plugs. Not when ran thru a few cycles anyway. Had a plug that was so tight I couldn't use tape on it. Now I got junk. Leaks like a sieve. Even thou it's top sealing. Checked out threads in barrel with bore scope seem fine. Only shot it once thou and stopped. Thought whoa look at this module. Noticed it looked different and felt alittle easy well loose going back in gun. Made it yellow also. Very pretty I thought at first. Just kidding. It has turned yellow though. Seem some stainless turns yellow with citric acid and heat. 303 stainless I think. R its from the brass I cleaned in it first. Not sure but phosphoric acid is close to citric I think? Anyway it ate the crap out of it. The plug that is. Sure hope the Smith I used kept specs on my build. R I'll have to send barreled action back. Hopefully I won't have to. Geez I'm getting old.

Question? I see the remington has been dubbed by western as safe with 160 grains volume of BH209. And the .45 paramount as being safe with 160 by volume. Think it's 150 for .40, 160 for .45 and 170 for .5o cal. I have a knight mountaineer. 45 cal. 1/30 twist. That I use for cast lead bullets I make. It has full asg conversion. Custom smokeless plug and sleeve. Custom remington bolt nose. I know it's not smokeless! However with the new asg ignition system could I shoot 160 grains volume BH209 it now? The reason I upgraded the ignition system was so I could shoot the 468 grain chicken bullet I make. And 450 money bullets I cast. It's a power house now. Simulate 450 marlin velocities no problem. I have a lyman 6th edition for cast smokeless loads. I can just about match any 45/70 load r more with BH209. I'm afraid of smokeless lol. I'm older and just seen to many pictures of blown up smokeless guns. People just don't realize how big lead and soft bullets really seal quickly. Cold bore and warm dirty bore shows no difference in my guns like when I try land riders. Even in my fast twist 1/18 barrels that r smokeless but put on muzzleloader. The factory ignition and 209 primers just don't get it! They explode into something that vagly resembles a primer. And full plastic jackets r a joke with heavy cast and BH209. The most I've ever used is 120 by volume of BH209 in that knight. Since that's what western said was max load for BH209. Then they said oh but if u have this u can use more. Geez. Anyway any thoughts and replies as always r appreciated. Thank u also I only shoot weighed power charges. I use .7 method. 100 by .7 method is 70 grains by weight.
