hi all , ive just come in from testing my first reloads !
i have to say im fairly chuffed with the results for my first go .
the test firing was carried out at 50 yds ( as far back as i can go in the garden !)
there will be more testing @ 100 yds plus once the wind buggers off
the load tasted was as follows -
federal once fired brass ( from my rifle )
48.1 gn h1000
140gn nosler partition
remmington 9 1/2 primers
OAL - 3.130
as you can see from the pic the first shot is was off , that was me being not sure if i was going to blow my self up
the rest of the 6 rounds produced qutie and impressive group . i hasten to add i did bench rest these rounds just to take me out of the situation !
i welcome your thoughts
