Does anyone know their fired case headspace measurement with this cartridge in their Sauer 202 rifle please? If so, would you kindly tell me what you measure at.
I had good results with h/space sizing at 1.776" using a Nosler 120gn bullet.
At 1.776" locking the bolt on chambering the round was a bit tight...not much, but a bit.
But then measured the fired cases headspace at 1.772"
Sizing with headspace at 1.771" the cartridge chambers sweetly, but the group size opened up quite a lot - from 1/4" MOA to 1" MOA. @ 100yds
So, I'm looking for clues.
