Re: New to site: My build is finished!!!

I am using H1000 powder in federal once fired brass with CCI large rifle primers. I am seated .010 off the lands so they are long. All my load testing was carefully worked up and I do not recommend starting with out careful load development. Now that is out of the way (lol)! I found that I have two spots that were most accurate in my rifle and they are both over hodgdon max! I am getting 2990 fps with 60.5gr and it will shoot .3-.4 and 62.5gr will hit 3095 fps and do the same. No pressure signs were observed and I have settled with my slower accuracy node for less noise and longer barrel life. Again these were CAREFULLY worked up to! Proceed at your own risk but this is fast accurate and works with a long barrel. Hope this helps!

Wow, that is a sweet looking rig, I have a thing for the tactical accuracy look. Well built, you certainly have an eye for quality.
