last post on this thread I promise

took it back to range this morning and while I did not have time to do a full load workup I went from 22.7 grains to 23.5 grains in .2 grain increments. Bullets were seated .020 off the lands at 2.280. Did 2 sets 5 shot groups with all loads and almost all groups were .4 inch = or - .01 or .02 center to center. Nothing truly great but no pressure signs at all and sub 1/2 inch groups from a home grown Stevens is nothing to complain about. I now pronounce this problem fixed but still going to continue to on load workups to see if I can find another holy grail of group size then work on the distance from lands and action screw torque to get it even better
