Re: 2019 Deer Hunting results.

Nicely done sir.

I'm guessing the helper there had it cut wrapped and in the freezer while you went inside to develop the film? :P

Re: Couple Q's on repeat-ability and desired tolerances...

Subs and low ES can be a tough thing to get in the same sentence, Unless you will be shooting 100 yards plus, go with what is most accurate, smallest group. Fifty and under it just doesn't matter. As far a indexing your cases and rounds, that is a long time practice of cast or single shot rifle shoo...

Re: Anyone loading for 9x39 yet?

I am not surprised at all, you know what you're doing. When you stretch it out a couple hundred yards there is no reason not to have sub MOA groups with some work. One of the things that the Blackout did for me was to rekindle my interest in single shot rifles/antique cartridges. 100 Years ago the c...

Re: Stolen NFA items

Stolen property is generally not returned until after the court proceedings. Until then, it isn't your property and is state evidence. Since this was in Baltimore, my guess is the Glock spent more time in police custody than the thief. :shock: Then again maybe it had a busy year on the streets and ...

Re: Stolen NFA items

I had kind of forgotten this, I remember one was recovered. Really hard to believe that was two years ago it was recovered and three since it happened.

Thanks for the update.

Re: N120 and Nosler 220 HPBT

Sierra and Hornady both have good data for N120. In a pinch 1680 data will be a safe starting point, N120 is a bit slower so it is generally lower velocity/pressure for the same charge weight. For me it seems to take 5-10% more powder to get the same velocity

Re: Couple Q's on repeat-ability and desired tolerances...

Small, flatbase bullets are kind of a pain to seat, you might be distorting the neck on seating. Measuring diameter might catch that. Also very common is a burr at the neck not being removed by chamfering. You might pick up either of those with a light file at the lip of a padded round that give you...
