If you have a short enough throat and can seat the bullets deep enough to not cause issues then awesome. I could only go .010 max and didn't have enough bullet seated. My rifle also didn't like the smaller jump.
Happy for you man.

Thanks Brent. More shooting will tell consistency. I tried jumping them all the way out to .100" with less than stellar results. I did get some groups but every group had flyers. 1 or 2 shots that would be 1" from the group when jumping them.
