    My buddy is using H322 in his, which is the same powder I use in my 204. I think the starting load is 22.0 grains. Maxes out around 24 grains? ~Muir

    I ended up with 24grns of N133, CCI400 primers, Lapua brass, seated to 1.923" on the ogive using a SHED comparator at 12thou off the lands in my Neil McKillop Sako A1 with a 22" PACNOR Super Match barrel. Gave me the best group with an average of 3671fps with Sierra Blitz King 39grn'ers.

    Nope...... full length of case to tip of the bullet is 2.3060"

    A comparator is worth it's weight in gold though......and consistency is key. ShootingShed comparators are the best around.

    Hornady/StonyPoint holes come up slightly different to David of the ShootingShed holes. The Hornady/StoneyPoint are two part at the bullet end with different inserts per bullet size which could give inconsistency if you switch the inserts but David's are built to sandwich the cartridge although I've ended up just using the pointy end half.... you could ask him just for that bit as it's a precision job to fit the two halves together (which they do perfectly).





    Nice to see my rounds are consistent...... that one was just pulled out of the pouch at random

    In my Sako A1 these are 'just' too long to eject a loaded cartridge via the port when emptying the gun/magazine... I just drop them out through the floor plate. They fit the magazine though which is the important bit after fitting the chamber.

    Cheers

    If you've got more than one calibre that use the same parent diameter case..... e.g. .222/.223, .243/.308 etc etc and you want the full two-part comparator from David then he could do you one base/many pointy ends to cover your calibre's.

    Cheers
