Tres,
I like your recommendations/instructions and appreciate the time you have taken to share them with all of us. Question about finding the seating depth of a particular combination. What do you think about using the bullet and a fired brass with the neck dinged down to hold tension on the bullet as it slides back into the brass when cycled into the chamber and then carefully backing it out and measuring with a comparator?

Thanks
Dave

New reloader here. Why not close the bolt all the way? Are you not getting a true measurement by measuring in between the stops? What am I missing here? Sorry for the noob ?s . I am trying to work up loads for my 300 rum right now and I am loving all this info. Thanks.


If you don't have anything nice to say, you must be talking about Hilary Clinton.
