What is your seating depth right now?
When I got a more accurate measurement the 160's were shooting about .107" off lands, I will test lengthening them out another .010" and another group .020" longer.
I haven't played with the 140's at all, they shot good from the get go but there is probably some tweaking to be done!
With the speed of the 140's vs the 160's that I have seen so far, the 160's don't have any advantage except about 60ft lbs more energy at 1000 yards. The 140's will shoot about 1.5 MOA flatter as well. Unless I can find a powder that will increase velocity of the 160's I will probably stick with 140's. Velocity should come up on both bullets within the next 20 rounds as the gun only has about 65 rounds downrange. In my experience with most bbls you see a velocity jump somewhere between 80-100 rounds.
