Re: new reloader couple questions

It is a factory barreled rifle and last night I seated a bullet to .010 off the lands and chambered it. It fit the mag fine, with room to spare, and chambered just fine. I will be working up the load today and will post my results. Thanks for the help.

    Well for my first loads I decided to start with a ladder test and saw 2 very distinct nodes. One at 77-78gr, 2960fps'ish with a 10fps spread, group about .75". The second at 79-80gr,3070fps'ish with a 16fps spread and and a dime size group. Went and loaded for the lower load and then it started raining so it will have to wait.

    Finally got htis load worked up. Real happy with the 100yd performance looking forward to next weekend to try it out at 200 and maybe a little further if I feel like dragging the steel target out. A picture is worth 1000 words so.
