    30-06 & 150gr TTSX

    Yesterday I scrubbed the barrel clean to give this rifle another chance. As I have mentioned many times I have tried many bullet and powder combos , most would have given up along time ago. This rifle will only shoot 210gr Berger VLDs over RL-17. I bought a bunch of Barnes 130 & 150 grain TTSXs...

    25 Creedmoor

    Are there any 25 Creed. shooters on here? I'm looking into different ideas for sizing the brass. No one makes die sets for it yet. I loaded some barrel break in rounds by putting my 25-06 seating stem in 6.5 Creed seating die , worked like a charm.

    Upgrading the Striker

    After a long day mulling over it , I ordered a new barrel from McGowens for my Savage Striker. When I bought the “handrifle” it was a 7-08. I could never get the outcome I was hoping for. The new barrel will be 14” and chambered in 25 Creed. 9 twist with a Douglas Silhouette contour. The main...

    GB Compliance Fee

    I noticed this past weekend on winning a few items on GunBroker they now charge an 1% Compliance Fee. This is new to me. Compliance Fee is fancy name for buyers fee. Like they need more money for themselves.

    130gr. TTSX in 308 Win.

    Last week I dusted off my Vanguard 308 and put the Barnes to work. I had some odd headstamp Winchester brass a guy at work gave me awhile back. I had some W748 left in a bottle and put it to use. One thing I can tell you Barnes load data is off , it list W748 49.4grs to 54.9grs with Win. brass...

    Working with Reasonable Priced Supplies

    Late last year I picked up some cheap powder and bullets. The powder WC867 was 16lbs/$84 plus shipping and hazmat and bullets were Blem Hornady 230gr A-tip for $46/100 (I think). So with crappy weather today I dug them out to try in the 30-378. The powder bottle states loads similar to H1000 -...

    StaBall and QL

    Last fall I worked up a load for my 30-06 with Berger 185gr Classic Hunters. At the time I had a Witt Machine clamp on brake installed which prevented the use of the Magnetospeed. Now that I removed it , it was time to check some velocities. 2 of the 3 loads I shot Quickload was within 30fps ...

    Getting Ready

    I’ve been slowly getting parts ready for my 340 WBY. I dropped the barrel and receiver off late last fall. I’m hoping to have it back by this fall. Nice part he is only 25 miles away. I’m putting on a Krieger HV finished at 28”. This should give my 338 Lapua a run for it’s money. I have some...

    First Time Out This Year

    Made it out behind a rifle today first time since last year’s hunting season. I added a brake on my 6mm Creed gave it a whirl. There was a slight shift in POI by adding it. Fixed on the second group. I look to be a little rusty. This rifle is better than this.

    Brass Making

    My brother has a Rem. Rolling Block in 43 Spanish I load for him. Brass is scarce for it. I found some Jamison brass years back from Midway , I wish I got more. The Jamison company is long gone now , so what does a guy do , make your own. This is not recommended for most to try. I started with...
