    After reading your posts I think I know what is going on. I went to the smaller expander which is .376, to gain a little neck tension. In doing so, the nose of the bullet deformed a bit. There fore the "off center" wobble that caused the yaw. I will...

    Now that you mention it, yes, I was blow tubing. Cleaning every 5th shot. I also tried wiping between shots, showed no difference. If a stouter kick in the pants doesn't work, I guess I'll go the other way.

    Those high dollar Pedersoli rear sights are not a good idea either. They have twice the lines on them, making it real tuff to set. And they have considerable back lash too.
