Ok, been readying up on sizing and lubing.. These casted boolits i have are measuring .355-.357. The sizing die kits are .358, wont these bullets just pretty much fall through the die? Seems the bullets should be casted at .359-.360 to be pushed and swaged through a .358 die? What am i missing here.
next question. The lee alox lube wil never fill these deep wide grooves in these bullets.. Do the grooves have to be filled all the way like commercial bought bullets? What are the groove rings for? Just to hold lube? Seems these bullets with deep and wide groove rings really need the pan caked method to be able to completely fill the grooves?
Rifle alone was $1070.
Not sure what's next. An O/U is one of the other things that has been calling my name since at least the first shotgun shoot I went to. Also on list are a Vudoo V22 in an AICS chassis and a AI AW/AE/AT in .308 or one of the 6.5/6.8 calibers, though those are a long, long way off, unless I do decide on consolidating and sell off a ton of guns. I wanted the Anschutz for 9 years, but I've wanted an AI for at least 20 years
