Re: seat vld\'s to the lands or off a bit?
Seating bullets into the lands will produce better long range accuracy in a properly designed chamber with properly prepared brass. Out of 30 different cartridges I have done load devlopment on, across hundreds of rifles, not one gun shot better with the bullets off the lands than it did with the bullets into the lands. Some shot near as well, but they are few. Even if you get better groups at 200 yards, if your deviation in velocity gets too large, you will see vertical stringing at long range. Vertical is BAD.
