Re: Follower or clip mag feed for bench accuracy?

Single loading is more accvurate due to consistancy. David Tubb on one of his DVD's does a demonstration with an SR25 in 308 shoooting 175 gr SMK's and talks about the fact that the riflre is accurate in single load mode but, not as accurate in rapid fire mode. I would say that 300 yards or less distance, it would not matter much. I have shot many thousands of rounds out of an AR platform in both modes and single loading and seating long for heavy bullets will give you the best accuracy by reducing group size by around 50%. If you are shooting 20" target at 600 yards, you should be able to hit it either way.

Meaning the chambering process in mag feed adds a degree of eccentricity to the round while being delivered to the chamber?

I do know mag feeding will move a hand loaded round (bullet) forward from its initial seat and possibly impact the coaxiality.

Is that what you mean?

Thanks Tom
