Just reloaded my 5 first 243 win on a my new rockchucker press
Absolutely loved it, the precision of the gear and scales etc was phenomenal to behold, I was almost in awe.
When seating the bullet heads I looked up the SAAMI OCL max which was 2.710". I could not find a recommended seating depth however,
I have currently seated to 2.699" on all five, although I am under the impression I can seat them lower later if necessary.
I just have a few questions,
1) What is the recommended seating depth for the 243 win, and if different for each bullet how do I work it out ?
2) On my bullet seating die its very fiddly / hard to move the top knob of the seater ever so slightly to 0.001" of an inch, is this hugely important or is there a limit that is acceptable ? eg 0.1, 0.01 or 0.001" ?
I loaded some once fired Privi brass with 37.5gr of Ramshot hunter, loaded with Hornady Varmint 87gr BTHP heads and CCI large rifle primers.
I used this as it is the same powder, primers and heads I loaded with my Lee Loader kit so know it should work safely, then I can start tweaking things.
