Dutchman, don't get hung up on having to fire form cases then reload them for bug hole accuracy. Federal's mass produced .308 match ammo with new unprepped case, metered powder charges, bullet runout up to 4 thousandths and fired in SAAMI spec or larger MIL SPEC chambers shot 1/4" at 100, well under 2 inches at 300 and under 4 inches at 600 yards from M1 and M14 service match grade rifles. The Palma teams around the world shooting arsenal or other mass produced ammo of the same ilk shoot that stuff just as accurate.

If any one of the several match-winning record-setting loads in new cases doesn't shoot very accurate, it's not the ammo's fault as long as it was loaded with the right tools, components and techniques.
