I looked at the leatherheads, they're heavier and have more bearing surface, for about the same price, figured I'd give them a try next.

As for seating out further, I can try that, I've got some room. I'd have to double check, but I think I'm just under 2" COAL.

I resized some to .309 but could not tell any difference and felt more comfortable at .310. Unless you use some of the brass on the Bad Brass list, you should be fine. I have my chronograph set up and load to 1,000 fps. I use Reloder 7 and sometimes LittleGun just because I had to buy 8 lbs during the great powder shortage a few years back.
Leatherhead guy just posted a free shipping deal.

Rainier is making a 180gr copper plated HP and RN. MidwayUSA is the only retailer. I have the HP's and they work well so far for me in a AR at subsonic velocities. They are cheap too.

The HP is not been showing the best promise for expansion, but if your just plinking, I'd get the RN.
