Re: Changing col increments

I will remark by adding some additional variables, primers. Both 4895's(H & IMR), in my tests and those of other shooters, seem to like either the WLR or FC 210M. Both of these are similar in results over the years. A magnum primer may be the wrong variable at the charge you are using. A good practi...

Re: Over-pressure only on 2nd and later rounds?

...hand loads from a friend.... I'd be pulling some bullets, weighing the powder charge, hope he has the load data for specific powder used. I have only one friend I trust reloads from...me. All else get checked as above, it's easy to be safe, sorry can hurt. What performs as intended in my bolt gun...

Re: VV310 load

Uh...no. Very fast powder like N310 is not really suitable for experiments in BLK loads. I'm sure it could go bang, but why play with it when more suitable powders have an abundance of data here and elsewhere. Save it for the pistol loads in .45 ACP for example.

Re: 300 BLK SBR - what is your zero?

Thanks Dr. Phil for that reminder, especially for some of the newer guys here. I certainly found your info useful, including 55 gr SP .223 subs in a RARR. One revolution up from my super zero put these TiteGroup powered subs on a 2" plate at 100 yds. The gal friend was stunned at how quiet the suppr...

Re: The importance of headspace.

At more than a decade ago, I read a piece about the rim thickness measurement and the tool used. I think it was in Precision Shooting magazine. I was fascinated by both the technical explanation and the results. I wish I had kept those issues, one can only squirrel away just so much before the lady ...

Re: 11 day blackout hunting

Dang man, what a great trip...and all that great BLK performance. The only critters I can 'cull' and shoot a bunch of are ground squirrels and prairie dogs.
Nice to see you back here and keeping us informed. Thanks for the high light of the day on the 'net.

Re: Alliant 300-MP load data from Alliant

I have shot a fair amount of 300-MP with 110's and 125's, along with a few different 150's. Performs similarly to H110 without the pressure spikes at the top end. Great accuracy with the lighter bullets. Have fun, be safe...BTW, their data is GTG.

Re: Feeding problems Dillon case feeder.

I would start with a call to Dillon for their input. Next, google your question for a any threads related to this particular unit and issues.

Re: Hornady 190 gr Sub-X load data

Bob, looking forward to your results. I have used both powders in small test samples, just did not get back to the N120. Seems I got bogged down in some rabbit trail stuff and managed to accomplish little. Hope this finds you well and avoiding the spread of the current virus.

Re: New bolt gun / what to choose?

I'm happy with Ruger Ranch, have the first model with rotary mags. It's been very accurate, kinda fussy about blunt nose bullets and just a nice little package. I tried to like the CZ, a buddy's had similar feed issues with cast RNFP, as most bolt guns do. CZ makes a fine, accurate product. I had a ...
