I know you can't rush perfection, but I am getting a little antsy in my pantsy if you catch my drift.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: 6.5 ss final design

OK, had a minor delay with the go gauge but I forged ahead, like there was another option We have 28.5 in of barrel, I plan on cutting it back at least once or twice to get a feel for barrel length vs velocity with this case. Tomorrow I case prep and fire form and Sunday we get serious if everything holds to plan
