Re: Depth Question

I completly agree with what everyone else has said so far; BUT, if you want to try a shorter "jump to the lands" you could load them longer and feed them single shot. Then if it is worth it you could look into lengthening you mag box.

Just a thought.

Re: Depth Question

That is what I was refering to. In your original post you were concerned about bullet jump to the lands but I thought you or someone else had mentioned that you were concerned about longer loads not fitting in your magazine. Now as I look back I think I was mistaken (never wrong [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img])

All I was saying is play with seating depth and see what happens. If they don't fit in your magazine just feed them single shot and if it's NECESSARY later, then look into lengthening out the magazine box.

I think I'm reading too many posts and getting them all mushed together in my brain...

Re: Depth Question

Great! I'm glad it is working for you know. My next tip is; make sure to try your cases in the gun as time goes by. when the cases start to get a little tight you will need to full length size them but when you do back off the full length die and just size the case a little at a time until it fits again as explained in my earlier post.

The nosler book and the hornady books are pretty good I do however think the sierra book is full of good info as well, by the way they have a tech line you can call with problem and these guys are real great guys to work with. It is toll free and they have always been helpful. I've talked to several different tech and settle on the guy I relate with the best. also If I couldn't get a hold of him I left a messages and he has always called back. I use almost only sierra bullets for my guns but I load for several people and they have helped me with other problems with other bullet companies bullets

Note: I use mostly sierra bullet because they work well and are consistent and cheaper for the most part.

well there are my tips I hope they will hep you out
