Re: Case length and OACL
Thanks for the "help." I guess I have just been reading a little too much. Its not like I just started loading yesterday, mater of fact it was in the early sixties when I got out of the service, that I started. I loaded, primarily for hunting and when I started it was for a Rem. 742, 30-06 and I started out full length resizing and have done that for all of the 6 calibers that I now load. I have killed over a hundred Whitetails and close to a dozen Elk with my reloads. In the past I set up my seating dies to match a factory load and never paid a whole lot of attention to anything except powder measurement. But in several publications I have seen statements such as the following from the 7th edition of the Hornady manuel all the way back to a Spear and a Hornady of the 60s that sounds to me like getting the bullet out closer to the lands spells accuracy. Don't know but thanks anyhow.
Oh well, crap, I gotta learn to down load pictures on this site. But I am sure you know what I mean.
