Andy, what's your loading pressure like? Rough estimate in lbs.

I have never measured it (attempted to once but my house scales were not conducive), but I can say for certain that my load is not that hard to push down the barrel. It does not just fall in by any means, but it does not seem to be as hard and strenuous as others have described on Doug's and other forums I have read. I am currently in the market for some cheap scales to measure this so I'll know what my pressure is. Is there a specific kind of scale someone would like to recommend or will just any cheap bathroom "dial" scale work? The electronic scales I have at home require one to stand on them for 5-6 seconds before it will give you a digital readout.

Cheap bathroom scales work best from what I've heard. Seems like the harder to load the better performance but with my H&R conversion it's not too awful hard to load. I'm gonna play with knurling more in the off season and see if I can really get it dialed in. I've got a Savage ML-II that needs glass and load work as well.

Rockhound, are you still experimenting with the 300 gr. HP Hornady's?
