Waiting to test loads

Postby CJP1 » Thu Aug 23, 2018 3:17 pm

I loaded up 96 rounds with three different bullets for group testing. I'm waiting on my co-worker to make my magazine catch plate from aluminum. I also recieved my aluminum pillars. As soon as I get the new mag catch plate I'm going to try my hand at bedding the pillars and v-blocks onto my Boyds birch stock. I'll be removing the scope and rings as well as cleaning the bore tonight. I don't want to use original Ruger American synthetic stock for testing just in case something changes with new stock.

I made it to the range this morning before it got too hot. I had 11 rounds loaded with 240gr bullets. I was there to sight in with high power scope and compare POI between both stocks mounted to the barreled action. I was stringing the loads vertically. When I got home I noticed that my scope had slid ahead in the rings. It will have to get a lot cooler before I go out testing my loads.

I pulled Barnes bullets from 64 rounds with inertia puller because of unknown powder weights. Waiting on new Forster collet to pull remaining 32 Hornady bullets. I threw my Pact powder dispencer away and will be useing new RCBS Chargemaster Lite to measure new loads. My Pact scale measures the same as my RCBS so I'll be useing it to recheck powder weights.

I finally recieved the new Forster collet for pulling 240gr XTP Mag bullets. I had a heck of a time pulling the bullets as I had side and taper crimped them. Time to start reloading soon.
