I'll turn a test batch of necks to .014" thickness to check for accuracy improvement too.

Thanks for the replys
The wssm brass likes a LOT of neck tension. Plus factory chambers are big, so a bit of extra brass will just fill the neck better. If you feel the need to turn 'em, I'd just go to knock of the high spots, nothing more.
I knocked out the bit of goop in my recoil lug area on my Coyote too when I lightened the trigger. I went to simply metal on laminated wood bedding and smoothed the high spots and she's a 1/4" to 1/2" rifle. I don't do more than I have to on a rifle to make it shoot. I keep going 'till she does shoot, and hit the brakes at good enough.

Sounds good, I'll wait for the temps to drop from the 80's and try the factory 120's to see how they group and wait to bed the action further.

Thanks for all the input.

Re: 25WSSM load suggestions

Had time to try some range time ( 100 yards) with the 25WSSM Coyote. I used factory Winchester 120 pep ammo and was suprised how well the groups turned out! Factory gun/Factory ammo.....all I did was adjust the trigger for creep and overtravel after installing a lighter spring.

Good group; hell of a lot better than my rifle with that load. It was 1.5"-2" with the 120 psp. I tried a few for gits and shiggles and they weren't good. I had over 1000 rounds of handloads through the gun BEFORE I tried them though.
