Relatively straight forward. Lapua Brass, 140 VLD Berger or JLK 57-59 gr.Retumbo, Fed 215, I use a Redding FL bushing dye at .292" with the supplied expander. You will have to test seating depth. My best accuracy is .075" of the lands with 59gr. I get .25 MOA, and velocities in the 2950-3000 range with a Cooper 52. 26" barrel. I have had great success with Retumbo in terms of low ES. temperature insensitivity, and high velocity with no pressure signs.
