Although it is obvious that anti-seize or teflon tape does not seal the plug it does matter if you over do the anti-seize as I found out the hard way on my first "module" .50 cal Sav. My breech plug/vent looked a lot like this one. I was scared to death I would "stick' one and over done it big time.If you continue to lather one up the breech plug threads will chase the excess anti-seize to the front and build up and clog the vent orfice. That stupid doe stood there while I tried to kill her 3 times before she took off...lol When I got it tore down it was very apparent as to what had transpired. The front of the plug(vent side) was a moist mess and the vent was clogged. I also discovered as CR500 has that plugs on all smokeless builds need to be "torqued" as I had a pre-accutrigger that I noticed gas checking on the plug and the plug would work its self loose until I put some muscle on it and it solved that problem.There was no smoke associated with it.

So does anyone have the actual torque spec to "marry" the plug? I tend to over torque everything, so I would like to put a torque wrench on it.

Slufoot told me I couldn't over tighten, so I just cranked it down.

Before hitting the woods this morning, I checked to see how much I had been tightening my breech plug. I used my small inch pound wrench. I always choke my 6inch ratchet so I choked the torque wrench too. I found that I tend to apply 10-12 ftlb when normally installing the plug. I then held the broken down gun on the floor with my knees and went to 20 ftlb. This is very close to what I applied to seat my plug when new. I wouldn't exceed 30 ftlb. Obviously, excessive torque should not be applied as the nipple could be twisted off. I wish that I could remember where I read the spec,

Update: Either seating the BP really good,using teflon tape, or switching to Win primers resolved my problem.

All I know is the issue is resolved and it's almost ML season!

I just wonder why slufoot didn't "marry" it originally. That is not meant as a slight to him. I noticed the smoke on Sunday when he was shooting and knew that something wasn't right. Glad it would is good now.

Larry I think it is a rare thing to have this happen. I have only heard of it 2-3 times.
