I'm not totally new to reloading just interested to hear your view. I understand for best results, someone bench shooting desires every round exactly the same from step one of reloading. In my real world adventures I'd be prairie dog hunting with this ammo at less than maybe 500yds. In addition to that I'd have the chance to load three or four weights of powder by the book and see how they group at 100yds. As for safety I have no worries about not using a chronograph in this situation. So my question is also what am I missing out on since I don't have a chronograph? I've read when using a chronograph that normally one will load until the velocity quits increasing thats the sweet spot. Is this really for everyone? What about subsonic or cast bullets? I guess thats another time.
