There is nothing anyone does, doesn't do, or sits
around and dreams up to try, that ultimately
matters more than target perforations. That's what
this is ultimately all about.
for Competition discusses the multitude of
criteria that can define "the load." With help and
input from top shooters and rifle builders, there
is more than enough information in here to allow
anyone to quickly determine ideal ammunition
composition for the rifle and course of fire. It's
easy, once you know.
THE BULLETS THAT ARE FIT, AND

performance (and tool and component selection), how
different land configurations and diameters matter
to different bullets, a complete analysis of twist

barrel life, and more.
how to determine the best seating depth for any
bullet, and how bullet design and construction are
critical, crucial factors in setting round

fact, we like to believe (and do) that everything
