I am fully prepared to stop at any point and have to pull bullets. We'll see. I will post back my results.
BTW Hornady's handbook sixth edition just arrived and it has the best info I've ever seen as to WHY each barrel is an entity unto it's self and why pressure can vary so much from barrel to barrel, or even the same barrel over time. Very good resource.
This is fun!
Solid plan. You are right. It is fun. Looking forward to your results.
