Okay...I am ready to start making bullets....

I am going down to cut on the lead pot.

I'll wind up with a 200 grain RNFP with two grooves made from relatively pure lead (I think above 98%.)

I am going to use my standard lube in the two grooves and I am going to crimp the bullet such that both of the grooves are in the case.

I am going to use a wad with my standard lube over the powder.

I will not be using a paper between the wad and the slug (and this is where I need your advice)

I am going to use FFFg grade of Triple 7.

I am going to fill the case such that I get about 1/8 th inch compression. This gives me right at 30 Gr of powder.

I am using a WLP primer.
