Yes, they're gascheckable. (Is that a word?) In fact, I have gas checked some of them even for the Trailboss loads. So far I haven't  tried they at full velocity or at long range.

eagerly waiting for a ballistics report.  Currently, I'm using 39 gr. of IMR 4350- this duplicates the service rounds performance.

Question on those bullets- do you bell the case?

I'd use a Lyman M Die, 31 caliber.  They work great with cast bullets.

I haven't and I do occasionally run into issues because of it.
