Hey Vince, I told ya I'd post something here if nothing went wrong during my first day of shooting my own loads and here I am.
Went to the range today and tested the loads I did for my 300 win mag and the 30-30. Quite an education. First of all, I discovered the 300 is just not something to sit and fire 15 rounds through no matter how much I decrease the load. It just pounds my shoulder into mush so I'm going to increase the loads next time and shoot less until I find a load I like. Second, running 20 rounds through a 30-30 is fun as hell. Third, Iím going to increase the amount of crimp on my 30-30 rounds while also increasing the powder charge a little bit and fourth, I need a chronograph.
All in all, I enjoyed the heck out of today's shooting and I'm hooked on this big time.
