I tamped in paper towel with a small dowel rod.

Pretty much any fast handgun powder will work great for the cornmeal forming method, some just need a bit more powder, some a bit less depending on their burn rate so you may just want to add 1/2 grain at a time until you get good case forming. You never want to see any ejector rings while forming and bolt life should always be easy of course.

The faster handgun powders seem to slam the corn meal into the shoulder area with more authority which seems to sharpen up the shoulder a bit better. It all works though!!

    I generally have trouble spotting my own shots at that distance because I'm shooting in flatter terrain with more vegetation. But I was just wondering how far you could actually spot your on shots through the scope 20-25 power in prime conditions on prime shooting terrain, since I ussaly shoot solo. I used to have access to a shooting place where I could spot my own shots through the scope at 2400 yards decently that was probaly still not at as ideal as where you shoot. But just got me curious?

    Sorry to interrupt a good discussion between more intelegent minds, let it continue!

    Kirby,
    So your saying that by mixing old and new, or even once fired brass for that matter. The result could be poor long range accuracy?

    Re: My New Defensive Edge LRKM

    Took the LRKM / 338 Terminator +P to the Townsend shoot last Saturday. I set up cold bore and put one shot in the 7" black circle at 1013 yards.

    Then during the day I let 3 or 4 other shooter send a few to 1013. All hitting their targets.

    All day I was eyeing a spot up in the elk horn mountains west of the range. Seems there was an exposed lime rock slide with a white rock placed where missed could be spotted. The 11" tall 14" wide rock was right there tempting me. I ranged it at 2272 yards and set up for the shot. Several other shooters gathered their spotters and got on the rock. First shot landed just right of the rock within 1/2 moa of a hit. Second shot hit the rock, 3rd went over and 4th was another hit. 2 out of 4 on basket ball sized target at 2272 was a good enough for me. I am very pleased with the Defensive Edge LRKM.

    Dang . . . . . . Double Dang!!!!

    I really shudda been there!

    Could have returned home knowing the dope on my big girl out to that range.

    One doesn't find that much talent and experience in one spot all that often.

    I think ELR is coming into its own. Now that there are some to play with the drive is worth it. As long as a fella keeps coolant in the radiator.
