    I have had the hardest time trying to find a Varget powder the last week or two. No one had any in my area. I was driving from WI to IA headed to the quad cities area a few days ago. I tried all the listings I could find on google with zero luck. I...

    I have had a hard time finding Varget. No one in my town had any in stock. Cabelaís an hour away from me didnít have any either when I drove past to check. I was in the Quad cities and called all the local reloading facilities I could find on line...

    Found varget today! Not a great price at $40 for a pound with tax but I believe the shop that had it new it was a hard to come by powder. I checked all the shops on my area, Cabela’s when I drove past it to central Iowa. And the shops on the quad...

    I tried some last year but never used them for hunting. It didn't have acceptable accuracy imo...2 1/4" at 100 yards VS my 300 grain TC shockwave that all shoot in the same hole at 100 yards. I used three of my TC original black tc sabots to try...

    Yeah, I forgot how clear my sight picture is through that scope on 7x. I poked three through the same hole at 100 yards the other day with the vx1.(it looked like a smaller three shot group than photo number three in the first post!) After that I...

    I put a red dot on my 8 3/4" anaconda when I bought it back in the 90's. I can shoot first sized groups with all six rounds free hand at 75 yards along with j words when I use to shoot it all the time. I'll have to try cast in it.

    If the world goes to crap I don't think there will warehouses full of 4570 rimless ammo or casings available. A good old boring 308 AR10 and you'll never be short on ammo. If I own an AR platform I want it in some type of chambering i can walk...

    I believe a little harder alloy helps with top speeds. My tightest group with 7.8 bh is 1600 fps out of my 77/44. My 80/20 plus 15% pewter with a BH of 15.4 shot great at 1750 fps and also with 23.8 grains of h110. I didn't run the 23.8 grain load...

    The 45-70 govt is going to have a lot of feeding issues in an AR platform. There’s a reason why every other caliber is offered besides it in an AR. Rimless cartridges aren’t made for ARs. Stuck with the bushmaster or .458 solcom. Shooters have alot...

    I must have gotten luck all these years since I haven’t had any issues loading the same bullet in my 35 Rem cases. Also Ive loaded 1000’s of 60 grain flat base hornady vmax and .308 RP core loct bullets with zero seating issues.
