Well, that's the first batch of rounds knocked up with the lee loader, surprising simple... Just a couple of question...but first the recipe -
Sierra 85 gr spitzer, 35 gr varget, and 65mm OAL.
the 2.5 cu.in measure states 34.2 gr with varget but I dipped and measured 10 dips the - the variance being 34.8 low and 35.5 high, so what I did was weighed each charge and got them to 35gr.
all the rounds went together well but on 3 occasions after seating the bullet and taking the loader off the round a few grains of powder dropped out, very minimal but still a bit, I measured the grains from the most significant drop out and found it to be 0.4 on the scale.
so what are the thoughts?
The max load for this round is down as 36.5gr.
i'll be testing these tomorrow all going well.
anyone using this combo and if so what load are you using?
