Yes, I go straight to best powder and charge results. No seating trials. They do not have a traditional ogive that engages the lands. The bore rider is ideally seated into the lands with the driving band and sealtite band right behind.
I have a 6.5 WSM in the work and Outlaw has already used the 6.5 130's in his WSM with good results. With an overbore like the 6.5 WSM, you don't want to spend a lot of time finding the right bullet, the right powder and the right seating depth. My plan is to develop 1 load for the CE's for hunting and another load with maybe Bergers for other shooting.
Yup, I read LTLR's thread and liked what I read which confirms my limited experience with them.
Thank you! That is all good information to know. Now I'm amped up about starting load development for my .375 when I get home. I can't wait!
