Re: .243 load development
well i don't know exactly how far off the lands. I got the hornady oal guage, but apparently i'm not able to get accurate readings with it for some reason. When i measured with that guage my oal on the lands was like 2.850 I believe so i seated the bullet about .005 off, and was getting a really large group like 2-3 inches, soon realized i was forcing the bullet into the land at that oal and eventually brought it down to 2.832 where i'm now grouping .75. i still want better though. It also seems to me that i'm getting some inconsistancey in velocity in my groups because each group is usually taller than wide which is why i ask about maybe an inconsistancy in powder but i also need to get an o-give thing for my caliper, that may be part of the problem if im not getting an accurate measurement of oal.
