donkey dung, you just think about squeezing it and it would go off.

Im curious about the .260, and I know you'll tell me, so I'm gonna ask haha. What gr bullet you loading 120ish? I guess that's the best part of all this LR stuff, working up the loads, finding the sweet spot, and watching your pockets empty in the process haha

No i like the heavier bullets so I shoot the 140 AMAX and 142 Serria Match Kings. In most case the heavier grain bullets offer the better BC. BC is your best friend when it comes to fighting the wind and stabilization. BC is basically how areodynamic the bullet is...the higher the BC number the more areodynamic it is. you probably knew that but for others reading I figured I would break it out.

I might switch to the berger 140hybrids...but not sure i need to.

see that, an idle mind is the devil's playground. I just heard more coins falling out of your pocket haha.. The old "Let me try this, I don't NEED to, but I'm curious" will get ya every time. I know it gets me anyway...

fascinating donkey dung right here...

haha...no doubt bud. idle mind is dangerous.

The best part about long range shooting is learning what rifles/calibers are truly capable of, learning a ton about them and proper shooting techniques...but all that aside when you see a target 1000 plus yds out (some only the size of a human head) swing or fall after you pull the trigger...man it is an incrediable feeling and a proud accomplishment knowing it was your time on the bench and testing loads that made that happen.

Factory ammo just doesn't cut the mustard when it comes that type of consistency and accuracy.

that's why I am a self taught reloader. Once I got into arrow making, I started to get more satisfaction with shooting tight groups, killing, missing lol with arrows I made/customized myself. No excuses then haha...I just enjoy the process, and have been waiting for a break in the weather so I can head out and shoot these .40 rounds. I switched over to WSF and have trays full of different charges in both the 165 and 180 gr Berry FP's. Just wanna find that sweet spot and start cranking em out

but making .40 rounds and arrows, IMO doesn't compare to hitting a 6" steel plate at 1000. It's the same process, but the more factors involved, where things need to be right, the more satisfying it is. I can see the addiction and how it can take over.

very cool...keep me posted on what you find.

As soon as I get time i will start load development on the 7wsm. Once I get her dialed in some, you'll have to come up and hit shoot some steel with me.

shoot at and hit are 2 different things, but either way... a day at the range with with EABAPRNJ Tony could be very informative. Just a heads up, I work for the govt, so I'm used to getting per diem and being reimbursed for mileage haha
