Fire form load.
200 yards 3 shot sub 8lbs rifle.
Wasn’t even a fluke I kept shooting and the group stayed that tight. Maybe I try to hard when I want good groups this was just settle and shoot.

Does that brass seem about right? I didn’t do a super stout load and hoping it formed well enough.
Gonna be pushing some 214 hammers through some critters this year.

So are you saying it will take a full 3 firings to get it we’re it needs to be? I’ve never heard of that. I guess better question is will I have to redo my load work after the 3rd firing or is it just very little gained after first firing?

No not likely. It'll just mirror the chamber perfectly after 2-3 firings. First is not quite tight to it second typically is but not always. By the third firing, it's perfect. Most times two but three to be safe. No change to load data

Thanks, ya I think it will shoot ok.
Just thinking with how good it shoots I’m gonna be disappointed when final load is done. Got to give a shout out to pierce engineering. Second rifle they have done for me and both have shot amazing. Plus they are about as easy to work with as you can get.
