Does anyone make a reloading cartridge block for this round? I assume that the base of the cartridge is the same as the 416 Rigby? (cheaper to buy a loading block than spend $15 for a drill bit)

How do you store your rounds after you load them? I was looking at 50rd cartridge boxes but these have the plastic hinge which seems like it won't last very long.

I am using 300g SMK with a starting load of 78g of H1000 running fed 210 primers. I want to load up 20 more rounds gradually going up 1g at a time watching for pressure signs and chrono readings.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
