    Forster CoAx

    Will NOT be a money saver. BUT, when you find that perfect load…,heaven! It's mostly about case prep. Learn what it takes to set sizing dies properly first; Erik Cortina is my favorite but he’s a 1,000 yd PRS shooter. You may need different techniques or simply abbreviated ones, if all you...

    Forster CoAx

    Been waiting for mine from Optics Planet since look up Erik Cortinas videos. He has 2 presses; a motorized Dillon and a Forster. He doesn’t lose a millimeter of accuracy with either.

    Flattened primers acceptable pressure sign?

    You should be able to tell if they are hard to push into a case holder. Plus, the manufacturer of the case makes a difference. I am comfortable with loads in Lapua brass that I would never try in Federal or Remington brass. The expansion at the base means the primers will be more likely (not...

    Flattened primers acceptable pressure sign?

    I'd mike the OD at the case head, and compare it to unfired brass... more than .001 oversize and I'd toss it.

    6.5-284 Norma

    48.48 gr H4350 worked great with Sierra 142s. 5 rounds into 0.96” at 600 yds. Now shooting 49.3 gr N160 with same bullet. Play with seating depth a lot to find where the gun is happy. CAUTION: those loads are STOUT but in Lapua brass, no major issues aside from short life.

    Barrel Damage?

    Call the mfg. Send it back for evaluation. Springfield rebarrelled my buddy's M1A for a bad chamber; you might get the barrel replaced for free if you don't mess with it... Might be something as simple as a button chattering during rifling..

    One piece bench rest vs. 2 piece

    2 cents: As long as you’re not trapping the butt, preventing the gun from recoiling, I don’t think you’ll see much difference for the results of your stated use. I suspect a couple of good bags would suffice.
