    Jeff if you don't get one I can stick a case in my lathe and drill it out. I have a 5/16-36 tap if you have a stoney point.

    Looks to me like you are doing fine with what you are using, I agree with the above post, I would not worry about squeezing the absolute max velocity out of your loading, your groups are good.

    Also your barrel will last longer if you do not constantly put the hottest loads through it, you may even be having a slightly slower than normal break in.

    I suggest you stay with your current loading for a bit longer to see if there is any more change.

    I agree just thought someone might have been where I am at. And was curious what was found.

    I'll send you a pm so we don't stray from your thread.

    Thanks

    Lamiglas, incoming text.

    Thanks

    Jeff
