I have a 220 swift Remington 700 VSSF, trying to determine a good seating depth for a 50 gr Blitz King. I took a fired case a squished it, marked the bullet and put it in the gun and closed the bolt seating the bullet into the lands. this length was 2.870 on a couple different tries.
I loaded some to 2.680 and shot them before this test, not impressive at all. How close to this 2.870 should i be? I have shot some ammo the i got with the gun that are 2.735 and lots better but not great. Hardly any bullet in the neck at 2.870, so where do i start?
I am thinking of starting at 2.735 and going out from there
