Spent the afternoon at the bench.

    I got all my stuff set up and got all my supplies out and spent the afternoon at the bench. I only loaded up 15 rounds but I had a good time and took my time and did it right. I loaded up a dead round, just bullit and brass, so I could get an exact OAL for my Ruger .30-06. I used the soot on the bullet trick to find the rifling and then seated my bullets .020 back from the rifling. It took a few tries to find the exact spot I wanted but I got there. I also got started on a load for my .25-06 today. Now I just need a nice, rain free day to go to the range and try it all out.:D

    Good on ya mate. Sounds like you are well on your way to driving nails at 300 ;)

    I hope so!! I'd be happy just getting everything real good at a 100 though. I have been fighting the .25-06 for a while but I wasn't reloading then either. I was using various brands of 115 grain ammo and was not having much success. I loaded up some 90 grain Sierria Gameking HPBT bullits to try out in it. Hopefully they will be better.

    I believe it is 1 in 10. It is a H&R SB2 Ultra.
