Finished the rifle reloading Excel sheet, started on the pistol.
Your post made me think - you might want to take a look at that CFE Pistol powder. It's supposed to reduce/eliminate copper fouling. I have a pound to try out but I haven't done enough with it yet to tell you about but you could take a look at it.I cranked out another 50 rounds of 38spcl tonight. I'm really liking that Accurate #5. It meters so well I don't worry about the charge variance. I checked every throw on my RCBS balance last night with a couple throws not being perfect. I hope Blue Dot and H110 meter this well.
EDIT: Acc#5 seems to burn cleanly, too. There's unburnt powder similar to in my 22mag revolver, but very little soot. I'll have to pick up some copper solvent as I'm seeing copper residue on the rifling.
IMR7828 was a good powder for my 243. You just need magnum primers with it.As for my .243 adventures.
My boss and I have been doing these little trades, lost track of who is ahead, but it don't matter as long as we both get what we want.
My boss needed some red dot for experimentation, so I traded him a large medicine bottle of Red Dot and 20 once shot nickle plated 45 acp brass.
I got a large medicine bottle "about 3 oz" of Allient Pro Varmint, 10- 100 grain fmj's. Also 10 brass, and a Recipe from Allient for 100 grain.
Going to load them progressively up the scale for powder and give them a try this afternoon.
SO I will be comparing 2 different loads for coexistence with my current .243- scope combo at 300 to 400 yard.
Then, trying to work up a load with 10 shots, or less to try and do better than the other 2.
Well, got to get loading, got a lot to do today.
I have ben in conversations like that.Thank you guys for talking me into buying a press and taking the time to figure it all out. Now, after a few initial headaches, I pump out my most usedI had to go in the reloading room because I couldn't stop laughing.
Oh, I see.one MOA is just over an inch at 100 yds [1.3 airc]
it stands for minute of angle.
so at 300 yds 3"s is less than 1 MOA.
