    I believe these are Cheddite, but I’m not sure. Had these a while. Same head stamp, two different primers. What say ye? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    “I’ll take them!” I can use them in my 375 RUM! I tried some of these with trail boss and they won’t group at lower velocity in my RUM. They like to be pushed at least 2700 FPS to start to hold a pattern. I’ll use them for deer. Thank you!!! I’ll...

    lol I have a whole pile of the light weight and gimmick pellets on hand wish I had half the $ money back I wasted on them. None are accurate enough for squirrels past 5 yards.

    I've thought about a faster powder, but it sounds to me like there is not much luck for cycling. It doesn't cost me anything, so I may as well give it a try. My favorite load in my 308 win Henry is 17 grains Bluedot and the 170 grain Lee for 1.7" 25...

    It all depends how deep you see your bullet. You’re better off measuring where your bullet seats and adjust your load from there. I’ve tried trail boss in my 77/44. It likes to be pushed faster to be more accurate. It works very well for 25 yard...

    Since this forum section is more about the gun, than the ammo, I'll post some pictures. Check out this big red birch stock from treelinem14.com. I ordered the excellent condition one, although fully intended to refinish it. That idea is out the...

    I noticed last night that I had to put my mil dot to the right side of the can when shooting at 100 yards and there was zero wind. I did some close range plinking at approx 10 yards at 10x this morning and It might have been even a hair closer. I...

    MidwayUSA got new 327 federal brass in stock. I'm sorry to say I bought all 2000 cases of Federal premium brand that they had. If you get on the backorder, they will have more in just 2-3 weeks. More importantly they still have Hornady brand, and...

    I found WLL Carnauba Red to be a great lube for many rifle and high pressure handgun gun applications. Where it came short for me was lower pressure/velocity and cold weather. I used it on everything from 45 acp to 30-06 with no problems, but it is...

    Oh boy, thanks for that link. I've been on this forum since 2017, and this is the first time I've realized there is a separate military rifle load section. I've got some days of reading ahead of me.
