Hey 2dogs, I just seated a 130 gr Accubond at the length I wanted to stick it out of the case (3.100") and told the smith to set the beginning of the lands where it would have .025" jump. I'm no smith, but I believe they can set the leade and lands where they want with a piloted neck reamer. Is there a reason you are purchasing your own reamer?
The smith had the reamer. I don't know if he owned it, borrowed it or rented it.
Bullets are tricky and will take some tinkering with a comparator. Long time ago I discovered that in the 270, the 130 gr TSX was longer from the point where the comparator hit to the tip of the bullet than the 140 gr TSX was. IOW sometimes the lighter bullets are "pointier" than the heavier ones. That being said, I would just seat a 140 gr VLD (if I was considering loading them at all) where the base of the bullet was even with the neck/shoulder junction and tell the smith (or the reamer manufacturer) to set the lands .025" off that.
Personally I love the 130 gr Scirrocco and a friend of mine also loves them
Three 6.5mm bullets, head to head for elk/deer - 24hourcampfire
but am thinking of trying the 120 gr TTSX
(I like pass thru's)
