Sorry, I tried at first to simply direct without getting into rocket science, but then I thought that kept back the knowledge, so I decide to bring light to this matter ... where did my beer go by the way I think you might get by without bullet comparator, just use your caliper and seater plug from bullet sitting die, it usually works without major fliers...

I love this forum... Jinx, because of your answer I think I finally understand why they call them spitzer bullets. Is it because they use a spitzer ojive ratio???? Learn something new every day

"Now here's an answer for us less sophisticated folks. "

I often think some of us strive for technical expansive correctness instead of just telling the noob what he wants to know. ??
