No, there are no pressure signs in my rifles. I get best accuracy seating .075" out of the lands. I mention working up the load only because a lot of people run Bergers into the lands and this could cause higher pressures.

    Well you have to start somewhere, so thats a good point, I just wouldnt count on that specific starting point to be the best. I (and I think a lot of people do this) starts .010 off the lands (depending on magazine length and if they want to use it) It is very common for guns to like bullets close to the lands, or even in the lands. As far as wanting to use retumbo thats great, I was under the impression you wanted to duplicate the BOTW load not just use it as a starting point. I didnt see the point of replicating it. But sounds like your on the right path. Good luck!

    BOW has stated that they generally run .025" out of the lands with the load listed above,just in case someone did want to duplicate the load exactly.

    Man the title to this thread is VERY misleading! Bow vs. boTw...
    I was really lookin forward to a "heres your sign" award type post. Not that anybody here would ever load an arrow with powder, & stuff a primer in with a rear facing bullet in front to touch it off on impact......
    Man now I'm gonna be bummed ALL DAY cause of a typo
