Re: How do you determine "at the lands" by your method?
I had the smith that built my rifle replace the factory ejector spring with a spring that is light enough to depress with your finger. It is just barely enough to throw the case. The benefit is less trouble for precision reloading and it allows easier extraction due to the super tight BR chamber I have due to less preassure on the side of the case in the chamber. I generaly dont take into consideration the firing pin. I also use fire formed cases which help a bit.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
