Re: Bolt handle tight to lift up on some shots.
Heres a little history on H380.. Bruce Hodgdon named it H380 because it was an Ideal powder for .22-250 with 55 gr bullets at a 38 gr charge Hence H for Hodgdon, 380 for 38.0 gr charge. And thats with a 55 grainer, you are running 53 grianers so ideally youd want to put at least 38 grains in there to start with.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
