Been handloading since 1974, Got several rifles that have never fired a single factory round. Every bolt gun I own will shoot sub MOA and if it don't and thats with bedding and trigger work and finding a good load, then I sell or trade them.

I have been handloading my deer ammo since 1978. All my deer since then have been killed with handloads.

I load all my ammo, .243, 260, 7-08, 30-30, .270, 30-06, 7mm Mag, and .38 and 357 mag. Never had a missfire [knock on wood] For me it just adds to the sport of hunting and my ammo always has out shot the factory stuff.

I handload for everything no matter what the intended target is. But since my current deer rifle is a 257 Weatherby, I wouldn't consider factory loads because my bank won't loan me enough money to finance a box! \:\) It cost's nearly $30 a box to handload the Barnes TSX bullets on top of 73 grains of IMR 7828. Yeah, that's a ridiculously expensive bullet for deer but at those velocities, I figure I need it to not come apart on anything but a perfect broadside shot. Love that laser flat trajectory........
