Run out

What type of run out do you look for on your LRH bullets? How much is acceptable on the cases? How much is acceptable on the loaded bullet?
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?

Re: Run out

I use a Holland Deluxe Concentricity Tool available from Holland Gunsmithing for $125. It does a pretty good job as do the ones from NECO and Sinclair. I try to keep my case runout to <.002" at the neck on my practice/range ammo and <.001" on the rounds I use for hunting. On the loaded round, measuring at the bullet ogive, I try to keep it <.003". It seems that if you can keep everything under .002" all around, accuracy is usually not affected to a great degree...CJ
