I'm sure this is beating the proverbial dead horse, but I've got a 1-38 444 and would like to get a good 300gr or heavier load. Right now I'm using Hornady brass, WLR primers, 43gr of H4198 and topped with a Sierra 300gr JSP with a COL of 2.605. Feeding is perfect, I see in the Hodgdon annual manual that they list a COL of 2.620 and it definitely looks like my rifle would accomidate a load that long. Will I gain anything by that extra 0.015? How hard is it to modify the rifle to allow 2.650-2.670, will I see much more with an extra 0.055? I've read the Pea Shooter and Safari Grade articles but cant find details on what to change, I dont want to mess with timing, just a little longer load. I also have Skinner sights on my rifle, they are awesome, but my front sight is about 1/8" to the right to zero the gun. The rear is centered. Is this normal, or do I have something bent? I did have to move it further when I went from the Hornady 265gr FP Superformance ammo to my handloads. Thanks for any and all help!
