I run all my Magnus bullets the same - shoulder at .020 above case mouth.

Many thanks, Gentlemen. Your eyesight is way too good if you can clearly see & measure the gap difference. My gap difference is probably about .040 but the actual COAL by calipers is 1.250, which is about where I generally locate the bullet. Much easier to control & measure the COAL by calipers. I generally locate the COAl on the H&G # 130 "button bullet" at about 1.150. IIRC. Thanks again.

1.250 seems too long. Mine run 1.22-1.225. I've been using a shoulder seating plug lately, so I never change it.

Many thanks for your input, Ralph. I am sure that you guys are correct. The WC Classic eats them up at 1.250, as does the SA CS TGO1, IIRC. The EB ET stovepipes then where it eats the 1.250 Button bullet. I do notice that when shooting the EB the muzzle velocity & recoil seem stronger with the # 130 button bullet load even thought both loads are identical internally. EB's simply detest Shok-Buffs and I do run them on all my guns, so the EB does have 1. The Hoag long-slide eats them too, but it is running a `12# RS. The EB runs a special 1/2 thick Shok-Buff so that might be the issue.

In my experience when a pistol recoils more with the same load its the upper lug engagement into the slide being less than the other pistol being fired side by side. Also lower lug engagement and lock up bearing surface can contribute. I always shoot my pistol alongside other pistols with same load for comparison. You'd be surprised at difference in felt recoil.

Many thanks for your valuable input, Jon, I had never ever thought of that possibility. My 1st thoughts were Shok-Buff in a gun known to not like them versus a gun to known to like them, velocity in the EB versus velocity variation the WC for whatever reason,& I had never ever thought of the lock -up difference.
