Was piddling with my 38-55 today, loaded some pretty hot rounds with the lee 250 RF, and had to clean up a bit of leading (Yeah I kew the load too hot but wanted to tryit anyway) After cleaning, I loaded a few cases with 33.6 grains of WC846 to push a Lyman 264 grainer (375449) and lit 'em with Winchester Large Rifle Magum primers and was rewarded with a 5 shot group that is .28" wide and .36" tall (center to center) I tried to follow that up with another just like it, but was only able to shoot a 1" group. This of course was at my usual 50 yards, but man it still looked sweet to me.

Sounds like fine shooting! You in on the Aloha Match yet?

............That is some VERY fine shooting, indeed! Just a few thousandths of an inch sight displacement at the bench makes a BIG difference out there on the target. Obviously though, the load was working and you were certainly doing your part. Great shooting!
