270 Allen Mag and WSM Shooters

Got a call from the wife last week informing me that a heavy package from Corbin Swaging arrived. Whoooo Hooooo That was way faster than I expected!

It happened so fast that I procrastinated too long and didn't have the press shipped at the same time.

I have an email in to Dave to ensure I get a proper press.

I figre I'm about 3 months ahead of schedule in turning out the first attempt at a 180gr High BC 277 bullet.

I'll have Dave send the press down here to Los Alamos NM and my wife will bring the die and stuff down from Idaho when she comes (if I can court her into coming down.......by the end of the month )

Several of you said you'd be willing to do some testing. I'll have bullets made before I have a rifle down here to shoot. Volunteers will be happily accepted. The only stipulation would be that all testing results will include all load details and be posted on LRH.com

BTW, Dave Corbin says that the odds are 90+% in favor of this thing working. We'll see.

If it doesn't work, hey it's just money.

Like I said in another thread. When I leave this ol' earth I want to slide into the casket dead broke and a big grin on my face.

    I'll try them at close to sea level. We range in elevation from 200 to 400' ASL. Let me know.
