i dont have a lot of time to mess about reloading (getting out stalking and lamping takes up enough) so my "routine" is to tumble brass full length resize trim champer prime then seat bullet. i have always just set the seating die by using a factory round and then work up from min load in grain incriments looking for pressure signs.
now ive done 2 loads for 243 and 2 for 308 all have shot well yesterday did a 100yrd 10 shot group with the 243 that measured 3/8" centre to centre and a 300yrd 3 shot group with the 308 that was 3". feeling pretty happy with that.
i read loads about neck sizing, neck tensioning with crimps moving the bullet relative to the lands etc. have i just stumbled on some straight shooting loads or do some people go to unnecessary lengths? when i started i was fully prepared to have a total ball ache of a time fannying around trying to get accuracy but this just hasnt been the case.
