Re: ? rifle shooters/handloaders
A Timney is on my "wishlist" and will be obtained soon.
I'm currently seating at .020 off the lands. I figure once I find a "promising" load/bullet combination then I will start tinkering with seating depths and .10 increments in powder charges, and different powders.
I question the point and productivity of doing this with a bullet(Nosler Partition) that's shooting 2.5" groups and slinging high and left. Seems more productive to try another bullet and tweak the 1" group I got with the Speer bullet.
I've got a 75 grain Sierra Varminter that I got a 5 shot .557" group on my first load, obviously this gun likes this combination.
I'd LOVE to get results similar to the above with a deer load. However, I can be satisfied with a deer load in the 100-120 grain load that shoots sub 1".
I'm just doubtful I can get there with a 115 grain Nosler Partition.
