Re: Some math with it, and what about brass life?
The nice thing about Lapua brass is that it weighs the same from lot to lot, where as Win, Rem, ect... seldom ever does. I have had 308 brass from winchester weigh as much as 15 grains diffeance from lot to lot. What happens here is differant pressure from differant wall thickness. I dont like to re-develop loads any more than I have to. Its nice to have at least 1 component that doesnt change. Besides 308 brass from lapua is 35 bucks for 100 cases and I have spent 10 bucks on 20 winnies (50 bucks/100) The lapua brass makes good sense.
PS there are 100 bullets per box of SMK.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
