Figured out the small base die is setting the shoulder back too far-way too far. Our bolt 308 doesn't care. The Semi-Auto is particular. 18 adjustments to get it right. We have a few ready to range test.

Midsouth Shooters Supply shipped me four 100-round boxes of Speer Hot Cor 150 grain flat nose bullets for my .30-30. Fortunately, they were smart and used Fedex and arrived today.
They asked me if I wanted FedEx or UPS and I chose UPS as I didn't want another FedEx driver turning around in my yard, in the mud. 🙄

Loaded up some Grendel and Creedmoor ammo for 400 and 800yd steel shooting with some friends yesterday. 123 hpbt and 140 eldm, steel was a 12”x16” silhouette, 8” round and 6” round ar500. 800 was a bit much for the Grendel yesterday.

The other guys had a .308 win with 155gr scenars, 6.5cm with 140eldm and a 6cm with 108eldm.

41.5grs h4350 has been fantastic in several 6.5cm's


Its shot great in mine out to 1k, a friend loads the same and has taken his to 800 and another friend has taken his to 1200 or 1300 I can’t remember which.

The 140eldm is a great hunting bullet too. He has killed a pile of hogs and whitetails with perfect performance
