I know that well. Union carpenter for 11 years. I have thought about it a lot and still don't know where the mistake was made. Never done that before. Oh well. Just hope after some new test rounds with the new length and Retumbo that she's punching .5 or less MOA groups at 200+ yards.

    Still a bit confused about your numbers. Mine rifle is 2.507 base of case to ogive. 2.582 to the lands. That puts me .075 off the lands give or take a thousands or two. Ok so my bullet and case length COAL is 3.16x add .075 it is 3.23. Is that matching your findings?

    Yes sorry I wasn't clear. I meant to seat the bullet to the lans would give me a COAL of 3.23". Sorry for the confusion

    Loaded a 3 shot group at .07 off the LANs and 57.5 grains of retumbo. Shot them at 200 yards today. No stickiness of the bolt at all. Group was about an inch. Maybe a little more. Have not measured it yet. Ill load another group at .040 off the LANs and see how it shoots.

    Redding S Bushing Dye. If you use Lapua brass, .292 bushing. It can be be FL, or you can go with a neck dye plus a body dye which can be used to size the cases after a few loadings when the cases get tight. A competition seater with micrometer makes life easy on seating depth adjustments, but is not required.
