    It will pull some of the vertical out of your group at longer ranges.

    Generally speaking you will not normally see a difference at 200-300 yds. However at 1000 you normally will.

    You will also lose about 2% of the bullets BC.

    Sinclair, Tooley and Kevin Cram of Montour rifles all sell the tools. David Tubbs sells Tooleys tool under the Tubb name.

    I use them depending on the quality of the bullet.

    Using this on a 260 and 308 I've seen at close range ( 100-200-300 ) the groups go from a tight collection of shots to a round hole. At longer ranges ( 800-1000 ) windage calls are more consistant and elevation remains more constant.

    Velocities tend to be more consistant and the ES and SD numbers for the 4 loads I use have dropped enough to justify the added prep time.

    YOu have to be alittle obsessive to do this.......... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
