So I dropped back to 111 this morning and lost 25 to 30 fps. Groups there were not stellar so I moved in closer to the lands and it picked back up to 3200 fps @ -.030" off the lands, no sign of pressure and under .5 moa.

These are max loads in Lapua brass. These loads would not work in anything that does not have the +P chambering. AS ALWAYS WORK UP!!

    Not only a great looking rifle, but that's one heck of a nice reloading room you got there!

    Hard to say since this is the first one built. But I am hoping for at least 100.
