I run a .312" neck. Cases are turned to a loaded diameter of .309"
Throat is very long with the bullets just seated into the neck above the donut.
The 171 Barnes is loaded to a COAL of 3.156" 0.010" into the lands. I use a CCI LR 200 primer.
Load is 56.5gn of AR2213SC (H4831sc) with a velocity of over 3000fps.
I get excellent benchrest level accuracy with this load.
This is a special load for a custom cut chamber, do not use it for standard factory cut chambers. Work up your load.
