Marks on 190 SMK??
I finally have switched to 190 SMK and am loading touching the lands in a 300 WM. After ejecting the live round I am noticing markings on the bullet ogive from the lands touching. Is this normal and will it effect accuracy? The reason I am asking, with the bullet seated this far out, I am getting the best results. I am using IMR 4831 (72 gn) with a 215 primer in Norma brass. By the way, I am using the Split Case method for oal.
