    How not to reload.....

    Lucky To Be Alive - The Firing Line Forums

    Pay attention to those labels lads....
    Brian.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Couldn't happen here. No Varget!

    Seriously though, I brave man to post his mistake so publicly. I suspect he is still on a high from having cheated the mortuary.

    The enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    Nasty that. He'll have to wait a while till he picks his nose with that finger. I have always thought the Vhit containers look too similar so I stick a big yellow label on mine. One for .308 and .22/250 on the N140 and 135. Another on the N160 saying 6.5x55 in big letters. Just so there's no chance of picking the wrong one up.
    Be safe.

    Says on the tight group a "little goes a long way" No ****!

    I use about 4.7 grains in my .44 Mag. Say 47 grains of my normal powder in a .308.

    Damn that was a big bang!
    Yes I should have taken the Blue Pill!

    We were so busy congratulating ourself of dodging Orwells vision we marched right into Huxley's.

    Think he's got off lightly, if I'd been that lucky I'd be doing the lottery this weekend

    What an incredible response to this unfortunate incident. I hope that you all will laugh along with the rest when this happens to you.
    It would be wise to soberly take on board how these errors happen, but then the reloading gods here are all perfect.
