I believe that if you are F L resizing then the base of the resizer die should contact the shell holder . Maybe double check any instruction sheet that came with the dies. That is still very nice group .

Re: ***First 3 shot group @ 381 YARDS***

if 381 is as far as your hunting property will allow a shot.......and that group is your average over several groups under 'somewhat' varying conditions and if you are hunting a yote or larger animal, I'd quit fiddling with the load and go harvest something.

If your quarry is pigeon size or smaller, then I'd tweak things just a bit. I'd start by partial neck sizing at least one caliber down from the case mouth and mess a little with bullet seating depth.

That is pretty much the same way I do it now . Thanks

This is as far at this property will let me but their is some public land that has some long fields that are currently being harvested corn/soybeans should make a good spot to stretch it out .
