Hornady 68gr issues #2

Posted 10-16-2012 at 11:59 PM by mroels

went to the range this AM. I was still all over the place, not even worth measuring. I also shot 4x5 round groups of 75gr Hornady TAP, which all came in well under MOA with the best group at 0.556" (cool number). So it wasnt me (well its me diring the loading process) or my gear.

Used once fired, out of my rifle, brass that was FL sized pushing the shoulder and trimmed. Only thing I noticed during case prep is that I have to update my trimmer (using Lee zip). The gauge sets the timer to 1.7540" so there are cases ranging from 1.740"-1.753". Would this cause over 2moa groups? I changed seating OAL to 2.225" which is what my notes show was the depth when I previously used this bullet.

On my next trip I'm going to hand trim every case to 1.750" and compare crimped vs. non crimped
