Re: Tuning a Load (part 2)
I missed the first posts, just looked them up. You and Catshooter have a lot of knowledge that we all benefit from, simple as that. I drive a Toyota, you drive a Honda, big deal - they are both good trucks.
I read and re-read your information above. In my opinion that is why this site is so usefull and enjoyable - we got good stuff here. Thanks, I wish I could write that concisely. I am going to print out some info from both you and Cat so I can re-learn a bit about reloading.
For what it is worth - which is absolutely nothing - here is what I don't do anymore with most of my reloads.
.. trim, chamfer, ream primer pockets - fact is tho I do not shoot brass many times, got too many buddies who mooch brass
.. mess with primers - I got told to use Winchesters by someone who's company loads tons of good ammo so I do
.. mess with over-all length - I want my ammo to hunt with so I set the boolits just short of the mag box
.. mess with powders and charges - I know what shoots in the few cartridges I load anymore
Compared to you guys I may be shooting crappy groups with these reloads but they stay at or under or damn close to a half-minute and that is what I want. I can load 100 rounds in about 25 minutes, takes way longer to shoot them at my steel targets.
Thanks all of you guys.
