    I measured my case headspace on multiple fired cases and found it was too tight. I use a redding body now that bumps the shoulders .002. Works perfect for me.
    I use a Hornady headspace measuring tool from midway. You can make your own with .375 inside diameter pipe and a caliper.

    What bullet are you using? That's impressive.

    Forgot to put that in it is a Berger 140 VLD
    zeroed at 100 yds and 1000 ft. elevation
    600 yds = 9.3 MOA
    1000 yds = 21.7 MOA
