    Berger's website has always shown the recommended twist for their 68 grain FB as 13.

    Has anyone used the Area 419 drop tube? I have the funnel set. Do you have to buy three of the drop tubes to get nine inches. They seem to be only 3 inches long. Don’t know that one three inch drop tube will help much.

    I have one. Its not much help and when he started posting here he wasnt too interested in making longer ones. I guess he doesnt need one. A 3” drop tube is equal to no drop tube.

    Shot 29.4 5 shots group. Velocity 3333. Group had very little vertical-mid 2s.

    Loaded the last seven pieces of brass at 29.6. Avg velocity 3362. 6 shots Round .17. 7th took group to mid .3s.

    I will step up to 29.7 and 8 to see what velocity and groups look like before I work with seating depth.

    PIA tapping the case to load N133. Got to get a drop tube.

    3362 is a good place most days at 100yds
    With a teen group is good news
    You can take that and learn flags with it
