Re: Suggestions for improving handloads?

Cody,
I agree with all of the above.
I would also add that it is beneficial to sort your brass by weight and neck wall thickness.If you use quality brass and have a micrometer designed to measure neck wall thickness,you can sort it to be consistantly within .001" thickness.This will improve bullet pull and concentricity.
FWIW,
Jimmy

Sort your brass and check for run-out.

Run-out can kill your groups and cause fliers.

Good Luck
