Pretty sure there's an issue here. :-) I wish I could figure out which FB group I originally found this in, just to see what kind of advice he is getting. The details as copied and pasted: "41.3 gr RL16 Lapua brass Small rifle primers Remington bench rest primer left CCI 450 mag on right. "
Lapua recommends using CCI450 primers, but obviously Reloader16 is not the way to go.
The above is the PSA, now onto random stuff.
My 6.5 Creedmoor is at my local gun dealer, waiting to go to a machinist. While vetting my newest scope, I discovered that when zeroed, there was only 1.4 mils of windage to the left available. That's not going to work too well beyond 700-800 yards with 10mph winds, according to JBM Ballistics. I don't know if the screw holes in the action are not parallel to the bore, or if the scope rail is the culprit, but the machinist guarantees that the steel Nightforce builder's 20 MOA pic rail will be cut to size, milled, and mounted parallel to the bore next week. Rings will be Badger and steel, also.
My IOR scope is on the way to Val-then probably Romania, as the vertical tracking is off. I wish they had produced a better Owner's Manual. Only on the website do they tell you about not letting the set screws on the turrets fall out. :-(
I'm glad I listened to Rex and started vetting my equipment.
There's a new Board of Directors at my gun club, one of whom is considering starting a night shoot to rid the area of some coyotes. Night vision, here I come! Maybe. :-)
Our 500 yard range may be open before long, giving me a chance to stretch out a bit.
My wife claims that I'm addicted. Just because she constantly hears something from the 101 series or podcasts in the background while I'm napping. :-D!
