I am getting inconsistent bullet seating depth, and was "chasing" the setting knob. I have the Lee Dead Length seating die.
So I do not bore you with all the details, Lee customer service actually proved to me that the culprit was the bullets not being consistent in shape at the tip. (ogive?). I did the test they told me to do at home and I was a believer.
I have been shooting Hornady Match HP 53 gr. (flat bottom), in my custom built, 22-250 with a 1 in 14 twist, 26" barrel.
I am returning 2 - 100 bullet boxes to MidwayUSA for a store credit.
I am strictly a target shooter .... not benchrest competition, but serious shooting for myself trying for "super small groups"!
Knowing my shooting style .... can someone give me some ideas for your favorite .224 .... 52 to 55 grain bullets for serious target shooting?
I was looking at Speer or probably Sierra.
Thanks in advance,
