    From my experience, the smaller the caliber, the less jump needed. 20/22??
    I go ZERO jump to jam .010 but I shoot single shot and am prepared to dump powder in the chamber if I unload a loaded round and pull the bullet. :eek: And I always point the barrel UP, just for that reason. Easier to clean the powder out.:oops: ;) No mag restrictions on OAL loading single. And my chambers are custom cut with ZERO freebore just so I can jam my bullets. You need to see what works best FOR YOU! :) YMMV.

    In my experience any of the Amax/ELDs love to jump regardless of bullet diameter. As I've written in other threads, I jump as much as .150 with excellent accuracy. I jump the .224/80 Amax/ELD as much as .090 with super accuracy. Don't be afraid to open up the jump a bit more with a Hornady.
