i shoot the lightest grain possible to cycle the gun. 4.5 to 4.8 works well for me.
i use 1.20 - 1.25 OAL. load a dummy (no powder) drop it in the barrell, it should drop in and out easily. then hand cycle it in the gun. if that works, load 5 actutal then hand cycle those.
this is NOT rocket science. if i can do it, anyone can do it.
Thank you. At least I have a ball park idea of where I need to be.
Any of you using a Lee Turret Press? I am just wondering what Micro Disk number you are using. I just tried a .40 which should give me 4.7grs, but when I weigh it comes out around 4.4 - 4.5grs. Should I go up to the next one on the table which would be .43 to give me 5.1grs that will probably weigh around 4.7 - 4.8grs on the scale?
