    I would start at about 10 thousands off the lands. After load work up then adjust seating depth in or out
    to fine tune your best load.:)

    Start at a light jam- between jam and touch. That way you only need to go one way.

    Ya know...that's a good idea...Less barrel wear that way too! I think I will start doing the same next time too. I been
    doing things one way for so long it's time to try it this way and save some steps for sure.:)

    If its a bench only rifle start at the hard jam. If its a hunting rifle start at touch so you can unload it
