I think 39.8 grains of H -4350 seated at 2.110 base to ogive will do. This four shot group measures .422 and was the best group out of 6 different loads . Three varget loads starting at 36 grains to 36.6 grains and three loads of H 4350 starting at 39.5 grains to 40.1 . I may try playing with the seating depth to see if it helps shrink that down a bit.

Looks good and it'll get the job done. But I'd dare say that Tony builds a rifle that will shoot better than most of us can. Try shooting groups playing with seating depths increasing in 0.015 increments up to 0.090 -- you'll find one that ought to stack em.

I think I've got and accurate measurement my chamber is 2.144 base to ogive so I will load some up at 2.142 , 2.140, 2.138 and see where that gets me .

That looks like 0.0015-0.002 increases (not 0.015) and you won't see much difference

Try

2.144 - 0.015 = 2.129
2.128 - 0.015 = 2.114
2.114 - 0.015 = 2.099
Etc
Etc

I'm shooting 143 eld-x in my creedmoor and best group was at 0.040 jump -- 1/8 moa -- the other seating depths the groups opened up to .75-1.5 moa.

Four shot groups. I think 2.115 at 30 thousandths off the lands is where it's at. This rifle is scary accurate.
