I DID zero the beam, good to know dead-level surface isn't a must, I overlooked it somewhere along the way...
Manual I was using came with lee set of dies for 30/30W, and yeah it does say that for Win. 748 with 170 FP bullet max powder charge is @32 grains...start load 29.7 grs
Thanks much for your reply Sir, highly appreciated
I sure feel better and more confidente to squeeze that trigger
