    JD, you'll find some people recommend using strips of scotch tape on the cartridge head. I'd avoid that and just use a set of automotive feeler guages. Of course that won't help a lot if the rim recess is cut too deeply. Chris.

    You will have piles of elevation left over on a highwall with a midrange sight at 600. I'd be surprised if you couldn't get pretty close to 1000 yards out of it. Edit: I just had a look at my notes. With my .40-65 I use 43 more minutes to get...
