You make several valid points but I'll throw you a curve. I'm not able to reload for myself, however, I have an excellent load worked up in my seven mag. It shoots a nice half-inch group at 200 yards and we have worked up the ideal overall length, powder charge and primer combination. I love the accuracy and terminal performance of the 168 grain Berger hunting bullet, and this is the combination I will be shooting for that gun.
My friends are not always available to reload for me. I'm looking for a reputable outfit that will take my dummy cartridge and my recipe and crank out a bunch of ammo for me. My situation may change in the future but for now, a company like Superior or someone else could work for me.
I'm open for anyone's positive experiences with custom reloaders; but I agree with you 100% that the load combination needs to be worked out in my rifle.
Anyone out there know anything?
PS I acknowledge that I have completely hijacked this thread and apologize to the OP. Just interested is all
