    You can do a plunk test to see how deep your chamber is. SAAMI is max of .920. You can use a cut off 308 case trimmed to .920 to check. Deep chambers will still function OK as you have observed the extractor will headspace the cartridge. Although...

    Look at a Hornady manual or their site concerning the velocity recommendations. I think it is somewhere in the 1400 fps zone you want to move up to the XTP/Mag for stuff like the Casual, 460 S&W and lever guns.

    The charge master is as good as it gets without going to a 5k Promeithius. From what I've heard since I picked mine up and doing my pre-purchase dilligence its the best out there. I think Lyman was the only other game in town at the time. You...

    I run Blue Dot for a midrange load with cast 180s, about 1150 fps. The 800x load is stout but needs to be weighed for each cartridge cause the flakes are like Lays potatoe chips. Need to pick up a pound of Long Shot and give it a try.
