    It might be worth making the butt longer than the short ones we always get. I would say at least 25mm longer per length from bantam to long. If it isn't already.

    A lot of enjoyment in reloading, especially black powder. Little fuss, not critical as to nano grams of powder, nice big bullets to handle, big cases, cases last forever, etc.

    Why not get the most accurate load first, you might have sniper accuracy right now. Once you have the most accurate load, fiddle with bedding, free floating, etc, until it improves more. Then look...

    None of them used the P14 as a first line rifle IIRC and most of the problems had been solved by then. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one, although they are a bit too long for my taste.

    LE magazines often have to be adjusted to work. Lots of handling and firing distorts the lips, body, etc. Judicious and careful bending, etc makes a huge difference.
