heya m8,

did you seat these bullets .050 out from the lands like Barnes suggests or did you play around with seating depth?

Cheers Stace

In this case, I just used a COL that had worked in another 6.5 Creedmoor rifle and just made sure it wasn't touching the lands by sooting a bullet with my carbide smoker and verifying no rifle marks. I did not even measure to see what jump this was since it shot this well out of the gate.
