For the 30 cal bullet, what ID. inserts are accurate to measure bearing length? Custom ID. inserts .3075"???

My factory Stoney Points don't work because their ID. is too small.

I assume barrel time and ES are more consistant by doing this?

Jerry,
If you don't mind could you explain what the problem was with the 240's. Feel free to email me if you want to.
Thanks,
Wayne

Re: David Tubb talking Sierra bullets, ES etc

Too bad that the "best" commerical match bullet has such poor quality control issues.

I have run into the same thing with a batch of 240gr MK. For what you are spending, you would expect better performance. At least Sierra, replaced my box but wouldn't consider all the powder and components I used up figuring out their bullets were the problem.

That is why I lean so heavily towards the Hornady line of poly tipped bullets. Those tips are uniform and consistently installed. Haven't done all the measuring but since these Hunting bullets can shoot under 1/4MOA in my rifles, I am happy.

Sierra has to improve or they are not going to be the gold standard for much longer. Sounds a lot like a US scope company we hear so much about.

Jerry
