This may need to be moved elsewhere - if so please do. I was working up a load for my new 6.5mm (260 Rem) rifle. I'm using 142g SMK over 41.5g of H4350. I had seated the bullet .010 from the lands and decided to try other distances. Apparently this rifle likes approx. .020 best - groups tightened up significantly. It's a Shileen barrel on a Savage LA.

Anyone found they needed to move the bullet further from the lands rather than closer?
