Hey guys

I'm going to start developing a load for my 30/06 hunting rifle. I needed a lead-free bullet because I live and hunt in The People's Republic California.

When I opened the bullet box, a card fell out suggesting to seat the bullet between 0.050 to 0.090 off the lands. I normally seat my bullets based on the Ogive, but typically find that 0.010 to 0.030 off the lands is the sweet spot.

At $35 per fifty, I am really hoping to figure out before I spend a fortune. Is the increased distance off the lands common with lead-free bullets? Does any one have any past experience with these bullets?
