John, is that a compressed load? 38gr LG takes up just about all my free space with the Magtech 230 FMJ.

In Theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In Practice, there is.

It does not look like a compressed load and there seems to be some room left after seating and crimping. "shaking it"
That is my limit for LiL Gun. Case heads are starting to some expansion, Primers look fine. Slight ejector swipe, No extractor marks or rim problems. I'm going to ww296 when the LiL Gun runs out. Maybe I can get the 230s up to 2800fps with it.
Can you see why I'm working on recoil reduction? :D
