Not too bad for a guy who hasn't shot a rifle in 10 years.
Needless to say, my buddy was pretty happy as was I.
Varget seems like a good choice, if your group was 1", then don't worry about where it was at; it it groups, it's consistent; you can adjust from there.
Your buddy now has 2 things to be happy about; a good group and having a friend that reloads !!
Congrats on the initial success and future fine tuning of the load!
