I averaged out the measurements & came up 1.956 as my "BTO" (base to ogive)
I was planning on loading 5 rounds each at -.010,-.015,-.020,-.025 & -.030. I will be using the same charge of 24.5 of Varget for all.
I am using 69 gr HPBT for a Savage 10 FCP.
On the Hodgon's site, it lists Varget at 24.0 gr min / 26 gr max. I shouldnt be worried about pressure too much...should I?
Is .010 to .030 jumps a waste?
Does this seem like a logical plan? Care to share your input?
What tricks do you guys have for setting the die up so precisely for the OAL wanted?
