It will pull some of the vertical out of your group at longer ranges.

Re: meplap uniforming tool

Generally speaking you will not normally see a difference at 200-300 yds. However at 1000 you normally will.

You will also lose about 2% of the bullets BC.

Sinclair, Tooley and Kevin Cram of Montour rifles all sell the tools. David Tubbs sells Tooleys tool under the Tubb name.

I use them depending on the quality of the bullet.

Using this on a 260 and 308 I've seen at close range ( 100-200-300 ) the groups go from a tight collection of shots to a round hole. At longer ranges ( 800-1000 ) windage calls are more consistant and elevation remains more constant.

Velocities tend to be more consistant and the ES and SD numbers for the 4 loads I use have dropped enough to justify the added prep time.

YOu have to be alittle obsessive to do this.......... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
