    Which ballistics app?

    Strelok pro is it. It uses the reticle for your specific scope, and if it's not listed he will add it. He did it for me in about a week. All the options are there for using the app. The free version was good but once you try the pro, you'll be glad. It's worth the $13

    What method do you use wneh shoosing a powder?

    As a reloader, of course I look for performance, but also am practical and frugal. With the 06 and 150-168s, using imr4064 or 4320, I can get the same velocity as 4350 and save enough powder for an extra 20 loads. Hmm, that's an extra box per pound of powder. Another hmm, I get case fill and...

    What dies do you use for 65-270? Can you also use 06 brass length with no problem?

    I know there's going to be bullet jump issues on the lighter weights, be happy to get down to the 120's. What kind of jump are you running with the 120's? That's why I like the 06 case and neck length, to handle the long bullets. Probably going to do a Remage, not sure which barrel yet. Where...

    How light can go, 100 grain? What about getting the lighter bullets getting near the lands? I resize 06 to 270, but they do come up short, but no big deal. Just that the Rem 721 throat is huge, can't get near the lands even with 150's, haven't tried any heavier. One big snag is leaving the gun...

    Thanks. Think 8.5 handles the 150 Smk? Heard you can use 06 cases with enough lube and go straight to 264 without annealing?

    Hey, I'm smashing head against the wall on deciding what to do with a Rem 721 270 that won't group well. Great info here, really want to do 6.5-06 as I reload and have 30-06 Rem 700. Don't think I'm hijacking here, let me know if I am. What about twist rate, to be as versatile as possible and...
