    Is a prise related to a tapper?

Turns out they had a single case of Federal 205 primers and we bought it. Not only were they as good, they may have been better than the 205Ms. Before we shot them all up, primer availability returned to normal and I don't remember what Mark did but I switched to the 205Ms immediately. Don't know why!!!
    Wilbur, probably has to do with the if it costs more it has to be better" thing. I've used 205's for years and can't tell the difference between 205's and 205M's. Remember when a scope company came out with a question to benchrest shooters to see if they would be willing to pay around a thousand dollars for a scope that would hold point of impact? The price on scopes went from $400 to $1000 on up and they got the price part of it right. Still some doubt about scopes holding point of impact though. Then also scopes are quick to get the blame for the shooter missing a flag change. Afterall, it's easier to blame the equipment than us.

    well i did shoot again today
    BUT
    the range was not open till 9 and by then the wind was up,
    not ideal to eval a load..i have very limited wind reading skills.
    so great light bulb came on.
    i talked to a local shooter, and have a plan for my next trip.
