hornaday bullet comparator

hornaday col gauge


as a rule i find .010 off is the ticket

every rifle and every bullet is different

advantages of seating out to land

improved accuracy
increased case capacity ( for those that tip the can)

disadvantages ( for some)
in short actions it may not fit in the magazine of the rifle
thus have a 2 shot rifle one chambered one on feed ramp

i have killed multiple ( 3 at a time) does like this heck even with a single shot


Im my rifles now i could care less what the col states in the book using the tools above i just check bullet to rifle and go from there

If you don't have the tools mentioned above you can seat a bullet on the long side and in a bolt gun you pull the shell in and work the bolt. If it closes tight or won't close at all keep running your bullet down. You can also look at your bullet and see the lands marks

redneck way: take a case fired in that rifle, slightly bend the case neck so it will hold a bullet firmly. Insert bullet but leave long, using a lighter or match, smoke the bullet till its coated in soot and slowly chamber and remove the round. You should see the land marks on the bullet. Repeat this procedure with a couple more cases and bullets and measure the lengths. This will get you the distance to lands. Some folks load at 10 off, I typically load at 5+ a tad.

Yup, that's how I do it. A marker also works instead of smoke, and I have done it both ways. Make sure to do it several times and with a couple of different bullets to eliminate variables in ogive, etc.
