You know, I have owned a lot of guns over the years and with each new gun I buy I have a tendancy to shoot it a lot. I am a believer in using premium ammo here in Alaska because there is such a variance in what you might shoot , no matter the given hunt you might be on. I have shot up 100's of boxes of premium ammo over the years and just started reloading a couple months ago. In short order I have almost duplicated factory velocities in my 300 WSM with amazing accuracy. I have also done the same with my 338WM with several different rounds. Anyway just thought I'd voice how pumped I am that I am now a handloader and the final reward will be when I squeeze the triger on something with a round I made myself. For those of you that dont reload and are buying those $60+ a boxes of ammo, your missing out on a kick azz hobby that isn't near as hard as I once thought it was.
