looking for reloading help.

I'm from Mentor, Ohio. I enjoy long distance shooting with my .204 NEF rifle. It is a very good shooter. I use factory ammo at this time. I just received reloading dies for it. Anyone out there got any good formulas for this caliber? Would appreciate any help that can be given.
Thanks ahead of time.

Re: looking for reloading help.

Great place to hunt, enjoy your good fortune. I am a long time reloader and suspect that I and others like me could be of help with some of the trickier aspects of reloading. With regard to load data, there is a ton of that stuff available on the web. Use it at your own risk. A good bit of it is valuable personal use information. Some of it is dangerous crap!

I would suggest getting a reload manual from one of the major gunpowder mfg.s.

Find out the top two or three powders that other folks using in rifles like yours. Then get started doing some load development. Narrow it down to the powder your rifle likes best and then start learning how far out to seat your bullets and the most accurate amount of that particular type of powder.

There are dozens of other aspects of reloading that affect accuracy. Many of these are discussed at length on the web. Read and learn!

Good luck!
