Re: Correcting runout after the fact
I am in the process of testing this problem and intend to load at least 50 rounds and
then sorting by the amount of run out. then testing loads that are over .002 and straightening
the ones that are .003 down to .002 and comparing them to loads that were .002 with no
straitening and then comparing the ones that were under .001 to some that were straightened
to less that .001 and also try to test the ones that are over .004 after they are straightened
and see if there is any advantage in straightening at all.
I know that sorting by concentricity improves the SDs and hence the accuracy I just don't know
how much you can straighten a case before it hurts SDs and accuracy. That's why I want to do
real test with enough data to satisfy me at least.
I will post my results as soon as I have it. (It will be unbiased because I have no opinion or
hidden agenda ) and just want to know for my self if it is a worthwhile process to improve
Al shots will be through a 35 p chronograph and will be well documented in SDs,Velocity and
accuracy in like barrel conditions,Temp, clean and stable conditions.
