Thanks to all I will reach out to you. Any open forum suggestions of cleaning, care, maintenance, and special tools that may be good to share?

I have posted on this forum for 37mm reloading if that helps? Bob is the one to talk too.

RVO SuperSlow powder is still available. WWI Mark I HE shells are plentiful and can be filled with concrete without fuses being necessary. Lots of 75mm FG, French and M18 cases available. The primer is the same as the 37mm and easy to reload with .50 BMG primers. Just need to get a good borescope to inspect the barrel before shooting. Easy gun for reloading.

to clarify- the base .50 primer is the same. but the tube is longer, and has to burn at a set rate. me thinks this set rate is critical. therefore what you use as primer powder is also very important.

as Mr. OSHA says, it takes 3 things to cause and accident. eliminate one of them. and no boo boo.

ID the 3 things that would cause an overpressure, and breach failure.
