    rfd, you could always load your best stuff and head for Lodi in a couple of weeks. That Creedmoor cup match is a ton of fun, then followed up by the Midwest bptr regionals. 4 days of load testing to be sure.

    CG's suggestion on a nose pour adjustable is a good one. I like those as they do allow you to taylor the length to your rifle. KAL and Leeth also make good ones. Old West did make them but unfortunately has quit that style.

    If your rifle has an 18 twist you may or may not get that short bullet to shoot well. You may want to reconsider the diameter on that bullet and move up to .444 or bigger. I've tried a bunch of different recoil pads over the last 20 years or so,...

    I start with a set depth into the case and find the sweet spot for the powder then adjust depth a little each way to see if it improves the best charges groups any. I chronograph while testing these loads also and have found Standard deviation and...

    Richard measure the butt plate on your rifle and get one of the Limbsaver slip on recoil pads, they really tame the felt recoil down a bunch.

    I had that happen with a Ruger level 4570 ,300 gr hp, no exit and no indication of a hit. That is till he ploughed the ground with his jaw! Entire chest cavity was destroyed. Still ran 60 yards!

    Don't get wrapped up in the seating depth thing. Go at it just like you would any other bullet, the target will tell you how much compression ,seating depth etc the rifle wants. I seat my bullets quite a bit deeper than what some would suggest, I...

    BACO's .446 525 shoots very well to 800 but after that it starts falling apart in the 45-70,45-90 and 45-110. It weighs 518 or so when cast from 16-1 and 520 from 18-1.

    The 2 shot method is a good way to find good loads without loading 10 or more of any one load and finding out later that you got a lot of trigger time in, but could of used the powder and bullets for better purpose.

    This verse also makes me think about how foolish we and our human wills and desires are. Many times, especially when young, we set our hearts on something that we know isn't truly "good" for us, and yet, our hearts yearn for it anyway. And when we...

    Charlie, you're always in my prayers, and I trust many others. The Lord has His plans for you. I've found out from doing it MY way, that the best way is to simply and humbly submit, and let HIM do the leading where He wants us to go, and for the...

    Chris when I go out on the range here, I take it along just like any other piece of equipment. It's a valuable tool. At 600 you don't need to use the receiver, the transmitter will have enough power to feed the picture. Beyond 600 the receiver is...

    You may want to explore some 1f blackpowder in that, I'm really liking the Olde Eynsford 1f in the 2 7/8 case. Those Jamison cases probably won't hold but around 115 grains maybe less. Be mindful of your fouling control. For the recoil problem,...
