Re: bullet comparator?

Sinclair , remember that it is just a comparison , find a tool , use it , record the changes , go from there . I use a Sinclair comp. and the thing is that "the nut" holding the wheel can be a major influence in this matter.

    I use the sinclair tool 04-900 to measure the lands and the stony point comparators to actually measure the loaded bullets and the other stoney pt gauges to measure the datum line on the shoulder to set up the dies for shoulder bump.

    Made one of my own LRH Link

    The funny thing is the SMKs shoot 1MOA+ @200 and the ones w/larger BS variance shoot in the 0.3MOA range @ 200. Also that is with random bullet selection from the box. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    <font color="red">wapiti13: The more consistent you have your bullet set off the lands, should add to better accuracy. Every bullet wants to be set off to a different spec, but only using a comparator off the bullets ogive will be consistent. OAL just has too much error since any excess length during manufacturing has to go to the point. The ogive is consistent during the manufacturing process. Also, upon firing the ogive is what actually first contacts the lands. Accuracy, pressure, etc. can all vary if contact is not consistent. </font>
