I am about to start reloading, I have all the gear and am ready to go.
I will be loading to get the best possible accuracy to enable me to hit rabbits out to 600+yds.
I am using Norma brass that I have had as factory ammo which has already been fired once only, it has been cleaned till its like new inside and out with vinegar. I do not intend to full length size the cases but I do intend to use the lee trimmers to make all cases the same length for uniformity. I intend to use federal primers.
I have been given a fair bit of advice and I intend to buy some H414, N140, or H4350 powder and load up from there.
I intend load 87grain V-Max bullets and set them initially at 10thou off the lands and work back from there taking measurements from a bullet head mounted in a split shell casing to set the start datum point.
I was going to start from the minimum powder weights and make 5 bullets in each increasing .5 grain powder weight up to the max powder weight and assess the resulting groups for accuracy.
If I wasn't happy with the results I intend to set the bullet heads an additional 20thou back from the lands and repeat the steps above.
Am I about right with the powders, bullets settings and approach for this rifle ???
Have I missed anything important ???
