    I have a couple boxes of 160 grain Woodleighs for my Swedes. Does anyone have any (1) experience with this bullet in a Swede and (b) are there any suggested loads out there.

    I have both a 96 Swede and a 38.

    I know Cosmoline did some work with Woddleighs but wasn't that for the 303 Brit and the Mosin????

    I gather some have used data for the 160-grain Hornady Interlock round nose for the 160-grain Woodleigh. Good luck in finding data...the Woodleigh has high BC and looks to be a great pairing with a Swede rifle.

    Ok, I just reloaded five rounds. I used 39 grains of IMR4350. However, with a COL of 3.03' I still have the bullet base very slightly (less than 1 mm) below the shoulder.

    1. Is that a problem, or have I seated it to deeply?
    2. I am using Lee dies and did a factory crimp. Is that OK?
