    Newbie here

    Hello everyone, I participated in the castboolits forum a few months ago and it seems that nickname also works here.
    I live in Argentina, and I have been reloading my own bullets for almost 20 years.
    Now I need to increase my accuracy, since I have been stuck at 1 MOA for a few years now.
    I will be reading the forum a bit to not ask stupid questions and then surely I will do them anyway.
    I hope to learn from you and get better shots.

    Welcome to our forum. We have some very knowledgeable shooters. I guess every thing we shoot is reloaded except our rimfire cartridges.
    No question is stupid, just ask.

    There are some great members that have tons of knowledge to help (aka Jackie) and some others that want to give long winded advice all day but don’t want to hear any advice from you based on your experiences
    Good luck navigating the two. Don’t forget the “ignore” feature

    To help point you in a specific direction, it would be helpful to know what type shooting sports you’re engaged in.What type shooting Sports are offered in Argentina? Are you interested in reloading Cast Bullets?,For what type gun?
    Do you shoot in Competitions? The answers to these questions are important to help narrow the search for information.

    Just a suggestion.

    yep
    define specifically what you are trying to do
    and
    with what specific gear.
    1" with cast is not bad at 100 yards.

    No question is stupid if you don't already know the answer. Welcome from another NewBie. 4 Years ago I ws a true Newbie, now with three of Bob White's Bench Rest Seminars under my belt and 4 trips to the Williamsport 1,000 Yard BR School, I consider myself STILL A NEWBIE. You will meet a lot of great people here that are also great shooters and always seem ready to lend a helping hand. A great fraternity.

    First of all, it doesn't sound like having met Cristian Rando.
    Until this year I was competing (quite a bit) in IPSC, but I have lost some interest, so I am focused more than anything on shooting my 1909 Mauser at 7.65x54, for that I use a Lyman 314299 mold, with PC.
    This last weekend I have revived my old 357, two inches, which I use with a very light boolit and win 231, a shot very much for the "range", nice to shoot. It made me consider entering FBI shooting.
    although I have improved a lot, my glock 17 does some occasional keyholing
    I also have a cz 550 varmint 308, with which I try to do long range, but already with FMJ
