I've been reloading for a few years now, and have run across varing oppinions on the case sizing issue. For me, I full length size my brass for semi autos to help them cycle, but for the bolt guns I only neck size them and leave the case fire formed to the chamber.
What would be the bennifit to full length sizing for the bolt guns? My method has served me well in the past, but I'm trying to work up an accuracy load for my recently accuired Savage 110 FCP in 338 Lapua and see that there are a lot of folks FL sizing there brass.
My current load is producing 1" groups at 200yds. and I'm pretty satisfied with that....But.....what if it was 3/4" at 200yds....
Here's where I'm at right now.
Savage 110 FCP w/ nightforce 5.5-22x50
Winchester large magnum primers
Barnes 280gn LRX bullets
seated to .010 off rifleing
83gns of retumbo
Chrono at 2600 fps.
Any input y'all might have would be greatly appreciated
