Slight differences in the two bullets and I do believe hardcast due to the published velocity.
Hope that helps.
I think starting at 9.0 and working up is the way to go. I will load a bunch of ammo this week. My father in law invited me to go shooting Monday as we both have the day off.. Ill try and get results asap.
