    I've shot LT-32 in my PPCs, but 2014 production. Can't remember the lot numbers. It's quite temperature stable. As long as the humidity was mild to low, it shot well (20 to high 90s on temp). My...

    Shultz and Larson's date back to the 50's. Unrtels were widely used back then. A 15x or 20x Ultra Varmint would fit the gun well. Unertl Programmers were popular too, but came a little later. By...

    They aren't registered in terms of a national database. But a newly manufactured receiver that is transferred must have a serial number. That's what I meant by registered.

    Well, not quite new. Jay Young built this for me in 2018. I’ve been so busy shooting matches and making bullets, I never took the time to finish it…..until now. Hope to put it on paper real soon....

    I shoot an 8.5 ogive 6mm and use 0.0015" neck tension. The marks are hard to see with that light a pull. Color the bullet with a sharpie and you'll see them better. You can go down on the bushing...

    I've done the same. Any bullet that doesn't feel right on core seat or point up gets put aside (those are a miniscule % of total). And I've shot those into the same hole as the "good".

    I'll second Tim's suggestion. The 1045 is a proven design and you can change the neck diameter if you so choose (ex - I run a 1046 JGS which has a 0.264" neck, all other specs are pure 1045). ...
