    Have you slugged and measured your barrel diameter? If you are interested; I'll send you 40 RCBS 165Sil .308 boolits HF Red Powder Coated with Gas Checks to see if another boolit may do better for you. I can do .308, .309, .310, and .311...

    You might want to look at multiple dies to draw that .310 Lee boolit to .296. This morning I was sizing a boolit/core (about 190 grains) from .302 to .298 and the boolit/core buckled and mushroomed at the head. In my application; I have been...

    Driving band looks shiny. That should be a Good Sign as the Copper is being smoothed out and not adversely affected by sizing down.

    Which NOE Mold are you using? What is your alloy? A softer lead when copper plated will still have velocity limits similar to the cast boolit since there is no Jacket of 0.015 to 0.030 thickness to take the sheer twisting when driven across the...

    I'd say your rifle likes the 12.4 gr load looks like time to try a few +- .3 gr at a time, then take the best to 100 yd mark. Those Swedes are some beautiful rifles, good job.

    +1 on this ^^^ and you get a nice square seating of the Gas Check if you take care when tapping the boolit base into the check; followed by running through Push Through Sizer (Lee or NOE in my case).
