Howdy to the fire
I have been loading up some 45cal .452 250gr HP/XTP'S for my Marlin rifle and they shoot nice! One ragged hole groups.
I have several boxes of bullets I purchased quite awhile ago and finally got around to loading them. But I have just noticed one box is a different bullet.
It is a Hornady 45cal. 452 240gr XTP MAG. I took one out of the sealed box to compare it side by side to the 250gr HP/XTP.
I can see the cannelure sits lower on the bullet by quite a bit. Meaning if I crimp in the groove the AOL of the cartridge will be to long for me.
I'm figuring it's not worth changing my dies around and trying to taper crimp out of the groove.
Thanks for letting me bounce this off you guys.
What would you recommend?
