    I know it's not a big deal to you guys but they were my first rounds of rifle ammo.

    69 GR Smk over 22.5 GR IMR 4064
    Winchester Brass trimmed and chamfered.
    Full length size (range brass)
    Loaded to 2.260

    Going to be used in my savage bolt action.

    :noes:
     
  2. They are going to explode.
     
  3. Are you gonna try to get out today and shoot them and give us a range report?

    The closest rifle range is 45 minutes away. They used to have a 200 yard range too but it got shut down :hs:. I will get to the range next week.

    Not likely I set my uniflow to throw almost there and trickled it in. The 4064 is crunchy.

    We joked that when we fired my mosin for the first time (mismatched bolt) we were going to put it in a rest and use a string while hiding behind a tree.

    What makes it match ammo if it's the first batch you've tried?
     
  15. I'm sure he's talking about the care and precision with which he loaded each round. The powder charges were all measured, the brass was carefully prepped, etc...

    Exactly I weighed each charge instead of when I load my .45 and just go by volume.

    I just said "fuck it", put a pair of safety goggles over my normal glasses and did it anyway. I also shot my first .308 reload as a normally would.

    Maybe I'm stupid.

    I would not have a friend fire first, unless I told him they were reloads. You could have a negligence action on your hands. Hell, you could have a negligence action even if they were reloads.
     
  20. It was a joke.
