    7mm 120 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip

    I believe it! I wouldn’t hesitate to shoot an elk in the ribs with the 7-08 and a 120 Btip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    7mm 120 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip

    Thanks! The Ballistic Tip has served us well over the years. I’m hoping to run a 95 grain out of my .243 into a buck this weekend! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    7mm 120 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip

    My wife filled her Washington deer tag this last weekend on a 2.5-3 year old 4x4 whitetail. The deer was bedded uphill and quartered to us at 80 yards. The bullet entered towards the front of the right shoulder, punched through the shoulder and one rib, destroyed the lungs, past between 2 ribs...

    CZ550 .308Win 150gr

    I have had good luck with both RL 15 and Varget for loading 150 ballistic tips. With that said, accuracy was great but I did not chronograph the loads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CH Shell Holder

    I traded into a C&H “H” frame press last year. It is very stout and has been working pretty well for me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Whitetail ?

    I have a week to hunt the late rifle season here in Washington. I filled my second deer tag (doe tag) with my 6.5 Creedmoor and the 139 Scenar during first rifle season and will probably use the same during late buck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    120 gr BTip / 140 gr BTip / 140 gr Win Powerpoint

    I load the 120s in my wife’s 7mm-08 to about 3000 FPS with varget. She has killed 2 small bucks and a doe with it. Shots on both bucks exited on quartering shots, one at 60 yards and one at 175. She hit the doe square on the shoulder at 94 yards and the bullet jacket was caught in the hide on...

    Handgun Reloading Tips

    I did! They shoot about as well as I can with a handgun. I worked up to 13.5 and loaded 30 of them as my woods load. Also ran one into the jugs at 10 yards. Landed in jug 5 and expansion looks pretty good! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Handgun Reloading Tips

    Here are my first hand loaded handgun rounds (minus my dummy round)! It seemed to go pretty well. Setting up the dies took a little tinkering but I think I have them where they need to be. I seem to be getting a decent crimp with the seater die, but might need a bit more. The rounds shot well...

    Mossberg SA-20 International All Purpose Field 20ga

    My wife has been shooting the compact SA-20 for a few years now. Hers has the synthetic furniture on it. It’s been a solid gun for her. It doesn’t like to cycle Winchester 100 pack Walmart ammo and the stock nit came loose during a round of sporting clays. Other than that it has been great...

    Handgun Reloading Tips

    Good to know! What’s protocol for crimping bullets without a cannelure or bullet groove? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Handgun Reloading Tips

    Thanks Guy! I think I am on the same page as you with loading 38 special practice loads and then loading up the heavier 357 mag loads for the the woods. I just noticed the cast bullets I bought are 150s not 158s. I think I will load these in 38 brass as practice loads and pick up some heavier...

    Bear Season!

    I made it out for the weekend and saw one bear Saturday morning. It did not offer a shot opportunity but we were glad to at least see one. Hopefully we can get back out there this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
