    Hey everyone, where do your ballistic tips like to be seated? I'm shooting the 120 gr 6.5's but any data on others will help. I'm shooting them out of a 6.5-06AI and at .030, .015, and right at the lands the groups were all .6". I'm happy but I think I can do better if I find a "sweeter spot". I usually don't see bullets group like that at 3 different depths.
