Re: Optimal Stragety to find good loads without wasting a lot of bullets and primers?

I use a slightly modified version of the OCW method https://www.accurateshooter.com/technical-articles/long-range-load-development/ These OCW methods look good. But man I wish I had a single stage press for that. I just have an LNL, making 2-3 rounds each charge on a progressive is a pain in the bu...

Re: Handloads for Sig Rattler

but is really a mute point since you are using a non expanding bullet that will go through a target where kinetic energy really matters like an ice pick thus transferring minimal energy to said target.

Re: Handloads for Sig Rattler

Personally I would group the load to at least 100yds to see how your load does before switching directions.

You didn’t post any chronograph numbers so I have no idea if you are within the subsonic realm as I have not done any testing with that Hodgdon powder. B...

The target boards at my local club are plywood and it has been my experience that when slow heavies hit a target stapled to plywood the bullets most often start to tumble as they pass through leaving slightly oblong shaped holes.
