    Well the rain held off today and the wind wasn't blowing so I loaded up my gear and headed to the range. I took my handloads to see how they would do and I also took some factory ammo to compare with.

    These are my handloads. Not great but I'm not a great shot anyway.

    Congratulations on your first handloads! It will probably only get better as you figure out what recipe your rifle likes.

    Fantastic start. I have some handloads I hope to try this weekend. If I can do half as well as you I will be delighted.
