    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...

    WTB 6mm 85 grain Nosler Solid Base

    I am in need of some old 6mm 85 grain Nosler solid base bullets. They have been my grandpas go to in his 700 BDL .243 Win for longer than I have been alive. He is down to 9 rounds left for this rifle and since the bullets have been discontinued we have not been able to find any. I would love to...

    6.5 Creedmoor load development

    I tried my hand at the “10 round load development” for the first time today. I picked up a Bergara B14 hunter a few months back and cannot seem to get anything sub moa out of it out to 200. I have tried 140 ballistic tips and accubonds. Now I’m working with 130 accubonds. Tried H4350 and Varget...

    Real .243 Win Velocities

    Lately I have been contemplating my current load for my Ruger Hawkeye .243 Win. It is consistently sub-MOA at 100 and the few times I’ve ran it on paper at 200 it’s a hair over 1 MOA, so plenty good for my deer hunting purposes but still some room for improvement. I took a decent 4x4 whitetail...

    Range report .243 win

    Lately I've been developing a load for my Ruger Hawkeye in .243. I had a solid load with 85 TSX for this rifle that I have killed 4 or so deer with in the past but decided to give the 95 ballistic tip a try. My first range session had me testing increasing charges of h4350. I had a couple solid...

    165 TTSX 300 wsm

    I found these two tipped triple shocks in the grass behind my 100 yard target. From my bench to 100 is slightly downhill so these bullets went through two 1/2" sheets of plywood and then impacted the ground behind the target. I found them about 40 yards past the 100 board so I'm assuming they...

    200 gr. Partition 300 wsm

    I picked up some factory 2nd .30 cal 200 partitions last night because I couldn't pass on a box of partitions for less than $15. I have been thinking of working up a load in my tikka 300 wsm. Is anyone running 200s in their short mags? I have both imr and h 4350 plus some r19 on hand. I am...

    Accuracy falling off

    Hey guys! I went to check zero on my Ruger Hawkeye 243 before deer season back in October, and it seemed to be shooting all over the place. Typically this rifle is consistently sub moa at 100 with my 85 tsx load.This time it was probably holding 3 moa. I shot my 300 wsm and it was still holding...

    First buck with the 7-08

    I don't post here much but I enjoy reading all the range reports, load data and hunting stories, so I figured I would try to add something to the forum! I was able to fill my Washington deer tag earlier this week. There's not much of a story but I was with my grandpa sitting on a clear cut where...

I have been wanting...

    356 win and imr4320

    Hello everyone! I have been considering hand loading for my grandpas m94 .356 win for awhile now. Over the weekend I was able to score a couple decent deals on .358 Speer flat nose bullets. I have both 180 and 250 grain bullets. My question is... Is imr4320 an acceptable powder in this cartridge...
