If you could pay someone to develop a load for your rifle, What would you be willing to pay?
For My self:
Half the fun and relaxation of purchasing a new rifle is in load development.
The other half is in the contemplation of a new rifle itself.
To me, I enjoy the work involved in the selection of the scope, scope base, rings, etc.. ( It is soul-satisfying )
When it all comes together well what can I say?
I would never, work up a load for anyone but myself.
Reason:
Too many liabilities, Period.
Not that I can't do it but rather the "What If scenarios" that could follow up.
Who needs this kind of Headache!
Rather enjoy your time behind your trigger !!

Blew a primer in my 240 this morning, but that's ok. It's my rifle and I was doing a velocity/pressure check. Should have stopped a little earlier based off the velocity, but I wasn't seeing any other pressure signs. RL26 spikes FAST!

I want to interject something here, you also bought ammo. That requires an FFL and most likely insurance on the providers end.
Producing ammo and doing load dev for someone to follow are 2 separate entities. I am pretty sure had you not taken 200 loaded rds, your bill would have been considerably less.
What you have to have an FFL to buy ammo I’ve ordered ammo online many times without FFL
