Built an ultralight .284 on a remmy short...yeah it works better on a long...I have been reminded by an "older" fellow more than once I was "screwing-up". It weighs in at around 6lbs scoped, so I really do not want to change it. I have 139 , 140 , and 154 loads all worked up...the 154 has been the tightest as of now (55.1g 4831)...my only concern is, with all three bullets, I am seating WAY past the cannelure , almost to the "down-side" of the bullet. I do not have any need/desire to go any heavier on the bullet weight...but...I am a little concerned about how far I am going past the cannelure. Are there any bullets out there w/the ring up farther ?!?

If you are on the shank of the bullet, show no pressure signs from the short COAL, AND it shoots good...I say go for it and enjoy your easy-carrying stick! :-)

Can you hear that? It's our founding fathers turning over in their graves...

Yes you are. Stick with the 140s - Berger, Barnes or Ballistic Tip.
