VLDs and Full Length Magnum Cases
I'm not new to loading Berger VLDs and I have achieved great accuracy with the -06 case Based Wild cats that I have. I have learned just like Eric Stecker has said. That seating just off of the lands is the most accurate.
This being Said, I am starting to Load for the 7mm STW and the Issue I'm having is in order to seat to the lands the bullet is soooo long that In order to clear a loaded case from the action, I have to pull the Bolt... I can't be the only one with this problem....
What is your approach? Are you still able to get the accuracy if you seat just long enough to clear the action normally??? or do you just seat to the lands and Pull the Bolt????
I'm Loading the 180g Berger, It's one Long Bullet. I want it to work so bad, It's sickening.....I decided to seat so I could clear the action and so far accuracy is less than desired, about 1" at 100yds...I just wanted to see what you guys were doing. I'm probablly going to start over and load to the lands and go from there.
