Using FED 215 Match primers. Factory Sendero Barrel.

Exactly why I'm switching the the Hybrid, no jam. VLD's in my rifle had to be jammed .005 or more. Generally, the deeper the jam, the tighter my groups. Love the VLD on game and paper, but rather try a jump.

Walt returned my email with data yesterday, found it this morning.
