Re: Help me figure out what Im overlooking
I'm reading your post, and what I am seeing is you might have added an extra "0" in your measurements. Maybe you meant .010" spread instead of .001"?
Heck I wouldn't sweat a .001" spread in any of my ammo, but yes a .010" in match ammo might ruin groups for sure.
That said, I have had some cases where the head might not have been exactly square that drove me nuts till I found it. I don't know why it was that they were way as they were new cases, but it sure gave me some weird readings. I used a Wilson trimmer to square them up and it only took a turn or two to do so. After that everything was back to normal. More or less it simply shined up the high spot and nothing more.
