I have a 28" and it is mild also but with an ES and sd in the low singles I left it be. Also the brass lasts forever, primer pockets stay nice and tight, and it shoots bug holes.

    I finally got some magnum primers (Remington 9 1/2m) and did some shooting. I went from 97 gr. to 102 gr. of wc872. Velocities from my 32" barrel ranged from 2949 to 3140 with the 230 Berger hybrid.

    Wideners reloading. The only stuff available was for .50bmg and 20mm, and those should work for overpowered magnums, like r.u.m.
