    For those of you who are shooting the NOE 285 grain in 0.368" using a wheel weight plus 2% tin alloy do you have a max speed where group sizes grow?
    Go now and pour yourself a hot one...

    My alloy is close to that, and they're casting at 0.3685". As soon as I make sure the head spacing issue is dealt with, I plan on working up some loads with that bullet. Hopefully this week. I'll let you know what I find out.

    If you powder coat, you can probably get away with near full power loads to be honest. 2200 FPS seems completely doable with a powder coated bullet. I've heard of people pushing them much faster than that.

    That would be appreciated. I don't know if I have a bullet problem or a bedding problem , or both , I am getting some very large (18" groups)

    I am sorting out some bedding issues created by the D.P.O. (Dispicable Previous Owner) who butchered the stock while attempting to bed the rifle
