I've got my rifle in the truck right now. In 30 minutes when I get off work I'm finally headed to the range. I have 15 rounds worked up right now.
65 gr, 65.5 gr, 66 gr, and so on up to 72 gr. I've got all of these seated to the lands. I'll play with seating depth that later. Just figured I would start there since a lot of rifles seem to prefer having the bullet touching the lands with the VLD's. I'm hoping to find my max load only this afternoon. That new RCBS Competition Bullet Seating Die that I just got is awesome. I set it once and loaded the remaining 14 rounds. I measured all of them with my bullet comparator, and they were all within .0005". I was extremely pleased at how well it worked and how easy it was to use. I've got my chrony in the truck too so I can get some velocities of each round. I'll post some results later tonight or in the morning. I'm excited .
