What concerns me is how long a throat should be milled when chambering* What kinda depths are you guys seating... are yours jumping far to the lands or are you a matter of "thousandths" from the lands (tight to them) ???
And what is you-guys' accuracy like.. is .5 to .75 pretty realistic and consistent with these LRX's? ...I'm real curious what to expect in that regard, plays a big part anywhere's beyond 4/500 yards* I shoot regularily to 800.. so this accuracy part is definitely one-thing I'd like seeing & hearing others' opinions on.
In my STW I load them as far as the mag box will allow, which isn't much! As you can see in the pic, they are seated wayyyyy into the case. I can't remember how far off the lands I am, because without a Wyatt's box, this is as close as they can be seated, and still magazine fed.
Groups at 100 are about 1/2". Here's a post about stretching it out a bit. Still haven't shot past 663 with it yet. That's coming!
