    • As for reloading being expensive. It can be as expensive as you want to make it. But if you just want to make good ammo and are not concerned with speed and volume you can get by with just the basics. A single stage press and dies along with a powder scale will get you started. That's it for the big stuff a few more small things needed are a reloading manual, a lube pad and lube if you have non hardened dies and trays to hold the brass upright. All you really need is available in starter kits which will save you money over buying each item separately. All but the dies and of course the actual components. The powder, primer and bullet. The brass being the most expensive component is the big savings point. Just price out the difference between a box of factory ammo and what the components cost to reload and you will see how many boxes of reloads before the savings from reloading surpass the initial investment. And with reloading you have the ability to Taylor your reloads to your needs...Charlie

        Very true. I grew up helping my Dad reload. I have all his old reloading books and notes. He was forever tweaking the rounds trying to find the perfect balance between types of powder, amount of powder and bullet weight and shape.

    • Went to the range today with two of my other guns , a Savage Model 16 in .243 and a Rock River Arms AR15 5.56 .
      Actually shot better with these two guns than I do with my 7mm's .

      The outside targets were .243 and the center target was with the AR . All at 100 yards.

    • My youngest son is farthest away in this pic. He’s been taking tactical training courses and yesterday was his first handgun/carbine class. He’s using my AR that I hope to get back one day…. They have to position for multiple target scenarios and in this class they interchange pistol and rifle. The instructor is a former Army Scout.

        ANY of the best loads will be THE most accurate and consistent when it fires from one of the two nodes, either when the barrel is all the way up at the peak or when the barrel is all the way down at the bottom. Remember, the barrel oscillates like a ‘sine wave’ when fired.

        That is actually the theory behind the loading of the Federal Gold Medal Match ammunition and is the reason why it shoots so well from many rifles, if not being the ‘gold standard’ for factory match ammo.

        You can do it yourself by looking up the ‘Optimal Charge Weight method, OCW, by Dan Newberry. He also has a handy chart that references common bullets and powders that will help you get in the ballpark immediately, then you only need to fine-tune.

        Another bonus is when you are ‘shooting from a node’ powder variation in grains won’t show much variation in impact, specially at 100 to 200 yards, sometimes longer. Meaning, you might have 3 loads of say 44.2, 44.4 and 44.6 grains that all hit the same point of impact at 300 yards.

        What this means is, one does not to be so ‘anal’ as to the powdah charge … like weighing each charge, if using say a good culver-type or Harrells powdah measure.

        • I was up in Swainsboro, GA this weekend for the MPA Fall Two Day Classic. What a humbling experience.
          110 shooters most of them the top shooters in the PRS in the US. One guy in my squad was #1 last year. Almost all where in the top 20 along with one senior. Tough shooters. The guy who finish 3rd at my last local match finished 55th. I finished 106 out of 110.
          Cool place to shoot.

          • I'm at 10 months. Seems they are at 2-3 years in PRS.
            Let's see how the next year goes.
            Tough crowd though, very competive. And the Teams stick together.

            • I like those exterior perimeter lights you added to the trailer. 12V or wired to the genny?

              Do you have a link to where you got them?

                I got them off Etrailer, but be damned if I can find them again?
                They are 12v LED.
                All lights LED.

                • You may have heard on the news about a Southern California man who was put under a 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned over 100 guns and allegedly had 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored in his home.

                  The house also featured a secret escape tunnel.

                  By Southern California standards, someone owning 100,000 rounds is considered "mentally unstable".

                  BUT…

                  In Michigan, he'd be called "the last white guy still living in Detroit."

                  In Arizona, he'd be called "an avid gun collector".

                  In Arkansas, he'd be called "a novice gun collector."

                  In Utah, he'd be called "moderately well prepared," but they'd probably reserve judgment until they
                  made sure that he had a corresponding quantity of stored food.

                  In Kansas, he'd be "A guy down the road you would want to have for a friend."

                  In Montana, he'd be called "The neighborhood 'Go-To' guy."

                  In Idaho, he'd be called "a likely gubernatorial candidate."

                  In Georgia, he'd be called "an eligible bachelor."

                  In North Carolina, Virginia, WV, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina and Minnesota
                  he would be called "a deer hunting buddy."



                  AND,OF COURSE,



                  In Texas, he'd just be "a guy who's a little short on Ammo.

                    I like it!

                    Here, what he’s called would depend on the calibers involved:

                    If it was a good mix he’d be called a smart guy who planned ahead.

                    If it was all in the same deer caliber, he’d be called typical Amish guy that can’t shoot for shit.

                    Apparently in CA it is a crime to save money on ammunition. Yet the guy who shoots everything up gets away with 100 rounds. Having that much ammo is not a crime nor is it indicative of anything but someone who practices shooting.

                    On TOS he would be "Florida Man".
