Thread: my first reloads !

    my first reloads !

    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

    cheers lee

    I was exactly the same when I pulled the trigger on the first shot, you should be able to get them touching at that distance, I am by no means an expert reloader, I load for my .243 and .308. I can get mine to clover leaf 100m if I'm not arsing about.
    Try your seating depth, I have mine 0.010" from the rifling it worked for me. EACH RIFLE IS DIFFERENT THOUGH!!

    Well done though, the problem now is trying not to shoot twice as often as it apparently is cheeper to reload.......

    im going out sunday weather permiting to test at distance , im lucky on a bit of ground just down the road i can go back to 250 yds plus !
    if i can shoot a 1/2 " grouping at 100 , 150 and 200 then that will do . ive not got time to be too anal about it
    i have reloaded another 25 rounds today ready for sunday !
    ive found reloading an enjoyable and greatly satisfying ocupation and highly addicive !
    i cant wait go and get out stalking and cull my first deer with something i have created.

    i would like to thank monkey spanner for his help and his advice , and JAYB for steering me in the right direction !

    cheers lee
