    I would suggest it's a case of being "Just incompetent enough". A very tiny part of the idea isn't dumb--the idea that one doesn't need to wait for the pistol to go completely still before firing...

    I do a ton of load development on charge weights. It's for naught, because every time I go out, I find that the best-grouping load with the smallest ES/SD is .3 grains below Sierra's max for whatever...

    Yes. That is to what I am referring. To be more precise, it's only true with auto-indexing turrets. Athlough to be quite honest, I've never used the Lyman or Redding Turret Presses Of Many Stations.

    Just so you're aware, most, if not all die manufacturers make a seat-and-crimp die. They're a little more fiddly to set up, and sometimes you have to play with them to avoid bullet shaving, but they...
