For those that shoot different types of bullets and not wanting to figure out the right OAL of cartridge your working on, do you make a dummy round to a specific OAL to that bullet or do you purchase another seating die or do you purchase a Comp die.

Comp. dies for all my needs...I realized this when I didn't go that route with my .223 dies. Why guess when it can be certain?

That or write all the OAL down for each combo and change die settings as needed.

I keep a notebook with all the specs of every batch I load. It is great for reference.

I write down the best shooting OALs for each bullet and make a dummy round for that depth.

I also keep a detailed logbook of my loads, in addition to the dummy rounds. The dummy rounds make for a really quick setup.
