You implied that you're using one load somebody suggested, right?
If that's true then why on earth would you do that?
If it's not true, then what have you tried as far as loads -before making seating depth changes?
Tell us, why do you think the gun will shoot?
Maybe I'm reading this out of context or I don't fully grasp the what your trying to say in your post? I started with a good base load that someone suggested to me that works to some degree in many guns of this caliber. I did not say that "joe blow" told me an exact load to shoot and nothing else. I was reccomended the "most common" base components such as the H4350, Fed 215 primers, and told that the Bergers were good to try. These are commonly used components for this particular caliber.
How do we accept the gun has any potential?? I have no idea what the hell your getting at with that statement nor do your comment of "Tell us why you think the gun will shoot". I think the gun will shoot because it does! Did you read my first post?? I didn't say I was getting 3" groups at 100 yds .....I just simply said that i was having to seat my bullets very deep, deeper than I figured normal, and I just wanted to get others opinions on this matter since seating depth with the Bergers seems to be a hot topic. I've never had to load a bullet anywhere close to the depth I'm havin to load these.
To all the others, thanks for your time and your replys.
