A friend and I are going to start reloading when his Lee press comes in a week or two. I am new to handloading and have never even seen it done but have been asking a lot of questions at gunshops and researching online.
I will start reloading for my 7mm rem mag that I will use for a moose hunting trip this fall. I need to find a bullet that will shoot well out of my ruger m77. I have heard that Barnes x, failsafes, and nosler partitions are good bullets to start with but how do I go about experimenting with loads without breaking the bank? Should I load 6 of each and see how they group or shoot more? I am sure you all have your normal routine and technique but what is a smart way of going about this?
My primary goal is to just find a load that has the tightest groups with the highest energy that will be the most effective on taking down a moose without going broke during the process. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
