    Questions:
    -lapua or Norma Brass? Lapua brass unless you use a chamber reamer specifically made for the Norma brass. Take a look at the new Alpha Dasher brass if you donít want to fireform. Fireforming for the Dasher takes some work if you want consistent cases.

    -Varget powder? Varget, Rl-15, or H4895 are all good in the Dasher and one of them should work in your barrel.

    -dies? I would recommend getting a bushing sizing die from Harrellís. They can fit it to your chamber but you need to send 3x fired brass unless your gunsmith can tell you which number die works with the reamer. Wilson for a seating die. Whidden is another good option for dies if you donít want to go The Harrellís/Wilson route.

    -Barts bullets? Canít go wrong with Bartís or Vapor Trail. Roy Hunter is also making some great bullets. Berger is another option if donít want to go with custom bullets, but in my opinion you need to sort them.

    Canít help with matches in your area.

    Have fun with your new gun.
