    What increments do you use when sorting H2O case Volume

    I'm measuring 338 Allen Xpress Case volume using water and as an example a case holds 120grs of H2O and another holds 121.4grs and so on. My question is what increments are you sorting them into ? Are you sorting them into 1grs or 1/2gr or 1/10gr etc ?

    Why such varying headspace measurement on fired cases

    Closed bolt on 3 cases with primers extended out and once ejected each measured 1.634. So looks like chamber has headspace of 1.634.

    Why such varying headspace measurement on fired cases

    Sounds like a great suggestion for measuring actual rifle headspace, I'm going to try that and see what I come up with for a measurement...and then maybe bump .002 down from that. Thanks, I'll post measurement.

    In hindsight I wish I knew what they were before, but don't.

    Why such varying headspace measurement on fired cases

    Cases in question are 308 FC factory loaded ammo once fired in same bolt action rifle. Using a Wilson case gauge the 67 once fired cases measure as follows: 14 cases @ 1.630 27 cases @ 1.631 17 cases @ 1.632 2 cases @ 1.633 3 cases @ 1.634 2 cases @ 1.635 1 case @ 1.636 1 case @ 1.638...

    338 Allen Xpress, RL33 load development

    Shot the 5 rounds loaded to 105.0 gr. No ejector marks, loose primer pockets, easy bolt lift and extraction. Average 2966 fps for 5 rounds. Placing the case on tumbler did the trick as once loaded I was able to again hear powder shake. Great suggestion, thanks.

    338 Allen Xpress, RL33 load development

    Not really hearing any powder shake. I think your right I'm probably right at 100%. I'll see what results I get with 5 rounds loaded to 105.0 but I'll probably stay around 104.2 as that should get me in at around 2950+fps and see what kind of grouping I get. Thanks for the input.

    338 Allen Xpress, RL33 load development

    After giving it a lot of thought I think I'm going to load up 4 more rounds at 105.0 grs and follow your suggestion and see if I hear any crunching when I seat the bullet the 25%. Thanks for the info.
