Bart, you must not have read all of what I said. I know full well that 3 shots aren't enough. The groups will be 15 shots each (5 and cool, 5 and cool, and 5 and clean). I just did 3 shots because the rifle needed cleaning anyway and I couldn't resist seeing what the new dies could do.
And while we are talking... on the Redding Type S FL bushing die, I'm not using the expander ball. Would that be your chosen way to test the die? And when I inserted the bushing, I did it with 'numbers down'. Redding's instructions didn't specify the proper way to insert the bushing, but some internet sources said that was the way to do it. Is that correct? Thanks.
