    Ive heard mice absolutely hate the smell of mint. If true, gives you tons of options, grow some on your perimeter, some essential oils in the corners or something. Could be creative, plus it would smell nice.

    Hodgdons h110 starting loads gave me cratered primers. Broke down the rest. Seems like velocity and point of impact matched or was very close to the factory loads of the 165 ftx.

    I wouldnt be terribly surprised if we could find two powders where under open burn, powder a was faster, but under confined burn, powder b was faster. It is neat to compare open burn speeds of 700x to superformance. Its quite a difference.

    83$ for a 100 round box of win white box 9mm, and a statement about low prices. I wouldnt be surprised if they allegedly sold someone a bridge.

    Its all data for the same aa hull, hodgdon will only show data grouped this way. So really, im saying, obviously only one of those is the "true max load" unless there is information about the loads not included. Perhaps an email to them...

    One of us could measure the diameter the cavities of our aluminum, brass, and iron molds are, to eliminate any math/guessing. If someone hasnt done it by morning, ill try to do it while im letting my dogs walk.

    Is this just hodgdon showing us pressure levels and velocity at different charges? Cause this looks to me like 4 identical combinations with 4 different "max load" Also saw where two different slugs of the same weight had pretty significant...

    I use a little hornady unique case lube while sizing. Interesting that there is a product specifically for this now. No reason it shouldnt work on powder coat i suppose?
