    If 31 gr was giving the correct velocity level for the older rifle and/or that appeared to be the accuracy node, then I would drop back 2 gr and try 29, 30 and 31 gr with the dacron filler.

    Yes, pinching off a piece of bulk polyester works fine. Just make sure it's enough to fill the airspace between powder and bullet base. A tudge too much won't make any difference. Too little can.

    Load those with .311/.312 jacketed bullets and they'll probably shoot just fine. Or with a 314299 or NOE 316299 and do as well with cast. 30-06 load data will be just the ticket.
