Thanks, polyphemus - That explains a lot. And with a total depth (powder and bullet) of about 1.075", .010" depth would relate to nearly 1% of the total case volume!

Thanks, DASHZNT - that's some good information, too. And using polyphemus' information along with yours...

If I press the bullet in from 1.250" to, say, 1.205, that would mean pushing it in .045". That would equate decreasing the case volume by about 4.5%. Would you think that a, say, 5% reduction in powder would be suitable as a start?


-Thanks for the link, nate - Looks like a very good site!
