How much and what powder are you running? Also what is your total OAL and OAL to ogive?

Also with your load is your is it compressed or do you have additional case capacity?

Sorry for all of the questions, I'm just starting a Norma build and am very curious on how others have had them throated.

thanks

I am running Fed 215, Retumbo 87.5, 300 otm. 3.840 on my comp.=[-] .005 off, vel=2725 Took mine to 90.5 and had some lift, vel=2825 I would like to try fed 215M PRIMER, MY load hear powder, dont think I ever compressed it. I wanted to use same powder in my 340 and case is 95% I used a 2' drop tube and stuffed as much as I could and crunched a bullet in, think I had 84 gr. 250 Nab and I only had 2500 vel.
