    I'm a retired army medic in Trenton, Ky. I grew up in the woods of Louisiana and now spend my free time reloading (or handloading, depending on how you look at it) and shooting at Fort Campbell. gun)

    Thanks
    I'm looking forward to talking with all of you.

    By the way, I was out to the range yesterday and tried a new load in my Rem 700 SPS (.308). I tried IMR 8202 XBR (40 gr) in Win brass with a 150 gr Hornady BT FMJ (C.O.L. 2.700). I was cutting a 3/4 inch group (and smaller) at 100 yds. This was my first time using this load.

    Does any one have any info on this powder. It seems promising. I am going to work up some more loads and explore this a bit more.gun)
