Rich, Thanks for all the help and information you gave Riley to complete this project. Everyone on LRH has been so helpful with all his questions, I have no doubt that his career path will involve gun powder in one way or another.

P.S. The grass looks a little long in those pics, better get the garden tractor out.
You are very welcome! I suspect Riley has a pretty supportive dad to encourage him although I don't think he needs too much....rich

Got 40 pieces of brass neck turned today, and just finished loading all of them for break-in tomorrow. I will be using some 180 grain Jenson J26 bullets over 81 grains of H1000 for break-in, i also loaded some 150 NBT over 78 grains of H4831 to see how they shoot, and i loaded some 210 ALRs under 77-81 grains of H1000 in .5 grain increments to see where i will be as far as max pressure and powder charge. I will report back tomorrow afternoon!

Re: My Dad's 30/375 S.I. by Straight Shot Gunsmithing

We are in business! I broke in the barrel and shot some groups today, no load development yet, but i dont think i will have much of a problem getting it to shoot. The 150 NBT shot pretty darn well, the 180 J26, did okay, but not nearly good enough for me. I shot a short range ladder at 100 yards with the 210 ALR, i think my accuracy window will be between 78.5-79.5 grains, based on the very little difference in vertical dispersion. I dont know what happened with the 78 grain charge. Next time out i will load 78.7, 79, and 79.3 grains and see where i am for accuracy with the ALR. I started getting some ejector marks on the 80.5 grain load and only had one more round left so i shot the 81 grain load and a good size ejector mark showed itself but i didnt loosen the primer pocket.
