The antiseize is OK. The BP is not "seated" in the barrel. Notice the shoulder between the threads and the vent liner. This is where the sealing occurs. There will, most likely, be spots on that surface that are not uniform looking. Mine did the exact same thing until I "mated/married" the two surfaces by the previously mentioned method. The face in the barrel may have microscopic chatter marks from the boring operation that Slufoot performed. Chatter is normal and it doesn't take much to leak at 30, 40, or even 50 THOUSAND PSI.

Thanks for the help. Below I put an arrow. I assume that is the shoulder your refer too... I dont have a torque wrench. I did have it snugged down tight. Do I need to apply more pressure snugging it down? Am I supposed to feel something give?

Yes, that is the land. In the picture, on that land at about 1 o'clock, you see a shiny line. That is where that portion is seated properly. I would wager that you don't have a line like that all the way around. Honestly, I didn't use a torque wrench, and most likely torqued more than 10. Yes, you will feel it sort of give, like a bolt that is stretching. It probably will be less than 1/16 turn before it stops and is seated. You may want to back it off and do it again just to make sure.

I laid my rifle, broken down, on the floor and held it down with my knee. Use a 3" to 6" long 3/8 drive ratchet, extension, and socket. Don't over do it. We're not tightening head bolts or lug nuts.

This is the anti-seize that I prefer to use. It is a semi-solid much like a deodrant stick. I learned to avoid the runny/liquid stuff as it will migrate and can and will cause mis-fires. You do not need to go crazy on lubing the plug...just enough to lightly coat the threads on the breech plug and ventliner.

I use fed 209a on both my conversions with no blowback.

It doesn't matter what kind of antiseize or teflon tape is used. The threads do not seal the BP, the above mentioned shoulder does. Until the BP is seated properly to the barrel, gas cutting will occur in the areas that aren't seated properly.

Thanks guys. BP is now married to the gun. Going to change the anti seize and get at it again. I'll post up the results.
