    I also use a Lee Group Buy mould for the C314-150-FN in both my Russian SKS and my Mini Mk X Mauser. I load them to 1850 fps over H4895 and both are excellent hunting bullets. The FN feed 100% in...

    If I wanted to increase the bullet size after sizing I measure the diameter of the sized bullet and determine from that how much I want to hone the "H" die out. In your case if the bullets are sized...
