Ok so my latest issue with reloading is......
I have prepared my cases by fl resizing trimming to book trim length chamfering and re-priming.
i have prepared a dummy round to book length which fits rifle and magazine well.
im now ready to fill the cases with powder in half grain steps from book start of 43gn to book max of 48gn.
i was just checking what the max load looked like in the case and it's flush with the case mouth!
to get a charge that is down below the neck (ie won't be compressed when I seat the bullet) I have to go down to 45gn).
do I just go from start load to 45gn and avoid compressing loads or do I go all the way up to book max and squash the powder in with the bullets (this concerns me a little).
all the best,
