    I want to try some 69 grain sierra match kings in my 1/9 twist Remmy XCR (for longer range vermin over the blustery winter)

    To date iv been using 50 grain nosler ballistic tips-

    There's quite a difference in length of bullet, do i seat it with the same die as the Nosler- i.e push the bullet a long way into the case or is it ok to seat it further out????

    I presume you seat it further out and push the bullet into the rifling more but can someone drop me some experienced advice....

    Also does anyone know the heaviest ballistic out there, solids aren't great for vermin in my mind- ricochets etc....
