Load up the dummy round and then smoke it. Tells exactly where you are on the rifles. How much contact ect.

    Old man power is something to be admired. I am always willing to learn so...how do you use a candle to determine OAL. I noticed that the next post suggested smoking the bullet. I would assume that means candle black. I have never tried that but I do sometimes use a magic marker to paint the bullet. Then when seated in the chamber it leaves a mark on the bullet. Is that what you meant?

    Yup, the candle puts sut on the jacket like a sharpie.

    So simple... thanks for all the replies. That should keep me busy for awhile... until I find the next variable to tweak. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
