Now that i have a load that is fairly accurate (.73 MOA @ 100 avg) i have 2 questions
1. Is this jump harmful to my gun?
2. If not, at what jump distance if any, does it become harmful.
BTW i am still above the max listed 3.290 COAL listed in my Lyman manual
You may want to try something like a 168gr match king or a 160 accubond So you can
get a little closer to the lands but still fit in the magazine.
Some bullets place you farther away from the lands, These two will solve this for you
and still fit in the mag.
Just a suggestion
