Forgot that the wads I started off with were actually .620" diameter. I also had some pre lubed .54cal wads from oxyoke and decided to test bore size VS over sized. IMO bore sized was a lot more consistent simply because I could feel the seating pressure on the power charge. With the over sized wad, it felt squishy and from what I see on paper, it shows that my seating pressure is no where near as consistent. Group in the picture is not from today, Just needed something to stand out.
