    What type of run out do you look for on your LRH bullets? How much is acceptable on the cases? How much is acceptable on the loaded bullet?

    I use a Holland Deluxe Concentricity Tool available from Holland Gunsmithing for $125. It does a pretty good job as do the ones from NECO and Sinclair. I try to keep my case runout to <.002" at the neck on my practice/range ammo and <.001" on the rounds I use for hunting. On the loaded round, measuring at the bullet ogive, I try to keep it <.003". It seems that if you can keep everything under .002" all around, accuracy is usually not affected to a great degree...CJ
