Re: one bullet per gun?

I've always developed main hunting load for each rifle but I also have back up load just case bullets get dropped etc and it's there if I need it.

Re: one bullet per gun?

I'm basically one load per rifle with the exception of my 308 MilSpec. For hunting I use a 165 Ballistic Tip. For competition and target I use a 175 SMK. Same powder, brass, and primers though.

1 load per rifle..............I even designate a keg of powder for each rifle and don't use anything else in it until it's gone. I have four different kegs of h1000 for four different rifles. Once a sweet spot is found with a large batch of components they get segregated from the rest of my loading components and designated to that rifle until the barrels toast.

Now that's dedication! What cartridges do you use with H-1000? I've been thinking of switching to H-1000 from Retumbo, in my newly rebarreled 7wsm.

338 edge#1, 338 edge#2, 7mm rem and 338 win. I Pretty much run with h1000 in any large cartridge, h4350 in the mediums and varget in smaller cartridges. So far I have found loads that were very satisfactory following that pattern and rarely venture outside it. I am always seeking consistency and accuracy more than straight velocity so I don't "experiment" any more than I have to.
