I took the '17 Beezer ShtLE to the range to try out my first load for her & to zero the PH-5A now its aligned better.
It really does not like the South African R1M3z, I had patterns instead of groups! They were 18~22" & that made it hard finding a group center to zero with. I got a basic zero for the 200 yd point (needed that because of the P-H goes into negative vernier #s if you don't).
Switched to some mild Prvi Partizan 180 gr loads I'm making for this old girl & the groups immediately dropped to 5~6" for 10 rounds.
Sweet!
BUT.
POI went a whopping 9" right & an even bigger 16" high!
Ouch
Nice starting load, I'll mess with it a bit more, this is my first rodeo with Prvi's bullets.
Gratuitous pics:

I have to admit I've simplified massively from my older times of reloading where I constantly messed with things.
Nowadays I work up a specific load for a gun that it likes then I just reproduce it on the Dillon.

Shamu; with the match sight on the rear of my No1 rifle I found that the original rear sight was a distraction when shooting at 200 yards.  So I have flipped the rear notch over on the rear sight and ground off the shoulder that was on the underside. That way it's no longer a distraction; and if I need to use the original rear sight, I can just flip it back over.

I also use a Dillon rig (XL650) and see you have similar mod's such as extra elastic bands on the powder doser and the .45 case on the primer level rod.

Regarding the change in POI. You might want to re-check the fit of everything since you had it apart. since it' had a few rounds through it now.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I'm thinking of grabbing a spare rear on E-Pay & doing that. That way if I decide to do something daft, like removing the P-H I can revert easily.
I don't know if they're available there but the best mod was the LED strip-lights! They're for "jazzing up a car" & work on 12 DCV! They are self adhesive & you can cut them every 3rd bulb, (Its marked with a scissors even!) The 8X "AA" battery box is the white / clear thingy (a 3.5" floppy carrier) in the background with a 35mm slide box top as an "extra accessory" tray.

Wink

The early powder dispensers I do the double spring thing, but the later "Fail Safe" (although bloody annoying) snaps back fine as its a positive push-pull system.

I also have a couple of super strong magnets on the flip-flop primer catcher chute, but I'm not sure how you'd do that with a 650.
Confused

The POI change is ammo related, I switched back & the patterns returned & were back in the original position too. Luckily with the P-H I can just dial it back in or out as needed. I'm still not used to removing the arm to pull the bolt for cleaning then just fling it back in again afterwards, but it seems to work!
Wacko
