Ok so, I am becoming more and more curious about handloading and all the hype about it. I know you will definately get some more accurate shots, but I am curious how much more accurate you might could be. As of now, I am content with saving money and using all the surplus ammo I can get my hands on for blasting, but in the future, I have a feeling I will be looking more into custom loading...

I have an m39, m91/30, m44, a westinghouse, a 1903a3, a k98, an enfield no4, a steyr m95, a k31, and a carbine coming in the mail. If you guys have had good luck with specific configurations with any of these, hook a brother up.

You need to pose this question in the reloading form!

The biggest reason you get better accuracy with handloads is you can hold the deviation in fps closer.Factory rounds can and often are a grain to a grain and one half different.Handloading you can stay within a tenth.Factory loads may run 150fps deviation.I've seen more.Reloading,I can keep the fps deviation in the single didgets.20fps is usually acceptable.I have seen 4" factory load groups go to 1 1/2" or less with handloads. Factory loads are getting better since they are computerized. sam.
