Works great for me.
What is your max COAL on that gun for the VLD or to the lands I mean? I'm almost a full inch off from your measurements? 3.850 for the OTMs and 3.790 for the SMKs on my rifle.

    Also have anyone seen big changes between Retumbo and H1000 or RL25?

    I do the photo is all of SMK's, but the bergers had the same performance. The top right group of 6 were a ladder test at 3.950.
    Moving left, 90gr at 3.950 (was the first load I tested when I was working with the bergers and had performed a tad better. So I loaded four.
    Moving down, 89gr 3.979
    Down Again, 89gr 3.974
    Moving left, 89gr 3.969
    Moving down, 89gr 3.958

    IMHO the top three of that ladder look promising to me if that is three different powder charges

    I want to say, one of those was a called flyer in that top three while shooting the ladder so I didn't pay it much heed.
