    H 4350 140gr Hornady match. From our right to left, first 3 are 39gr, then three 39.2, 39.6, 39.8 and the last two 40.gr.
    Well below SAAMI max but will give me a feel on what's going to work. Cant use my chrono either because the wind would blow down my crappy tripod

    When you guys get tired of all this, just say so. I get carried away often and take up space.

    A few different gr to start developing a load.JPG

    PS. That Caliper I have on the table is the best. Darn thing is dead on every time and I just love it. Picked it up at AutoZone on sale and I'm pleased.
    I've had crap luck with calipers. I had a Mitutoyo that fell apart (yes fell apart) and trying to get customer service to do anything was impossible. I eventually took a hammer to it and tossed it in the trash with a couple others I'd bought from Harbor Freight that never held zero.
    Anyway, I may change my mind soon, but right now, I'm pleased. Wanting to connect it to my laptop to track data on my reloads (if I can find a 8 year old to show me how to do it).

    It's windy and appears to be S. S.E but it ain't tooo windy to shoot :Heya: I'll just move closer to the targets.. The belt on the rider went kaput, didn't notice the right front tire on the tractor was low/flat until I had a bucket of dirt and the tire broke bead.. I put in at least 30 minutes trying to get it aired back up, before I pulled it off and will take it to town tomorrow.. Ran the weed eater, push mower and walk behind tiller.. Then it came to me I have too many projects to put in a garden this year.. I'll put in a few plants but it won't be an official garden.. I put the spitfire on the PCC 9 and it's not zero'ed, The 15-22 is only roughed out and the new M&P .22 compact only has 100 rds down.. So I've got a good excuse to go shoot.. :fullauto:

    Looks like your ready to test them. I remember my first shot of my reloads. I did everything as I should from reading and researching. I was still a little nervous when I went to shoot them.

    Try some break cleaner in the tire and put a match to it. I will visit you in the hospital.

    Ha! I'm gettin' tired of you askin' if we're gettin' tired...
    :D

    Seriously, I really like it when you and other folks post projects. Some of us don't (or can't) get out and do much, and y'all's projects are a great way to learn about stuff we're not familiar with (and often when we are).

    Keep 'em coming. :drunk2:
