    2nd day - 2nd loads

    Trying different loads. Groups are still good, but not as good as 36.5 grains.

    200 yds - 5 shots - 3 in inch square - 2 were 1/2 out. Total group - less than 1-1/2 inches at 200 yds.

    I'm loving this... :):):)

    .308 now you see why many of us reload. I myself am new like many here, but everytime I try something out and it all comes together it makes me feel great. Even when loads don't do as expected I feel good because then I know to stay away. I still get frustrated when a dealer says that a certain powder is what the use for a certain load and you end up with a pound of junk on your shelf. Bluedot to me is just such a powder. What I have tried was not that great and it runs through the powder charge like nothing that will ever scale the same. Great to hear you are having success and carry on.

    Thanks guys... this is pretty cool. I'm just about out of Varget. I have a little BLC2 left, so I'm going to try that. I'm waiting on my dealer to replenish his stock, I don't feel like paying the Hazmat fee.\

    Now I just have to figure out how to properly seat the bullet just of the lands. Then, I'll start all over again.
