    I agree Al. Like most, I pre-load for Score and make adjustments with my tuner if needed during the day. I paid a fair clip for my FX-120i and use it.

    I only shoot short range, so I can't speak to ES and SD as they pertain to 600 or 1,000 yard competition. I realize they're more important at those distances. But out to 300 yards, this is what...

    You can also send fired cases to Whidden and they'll cut a set of matched dies. I did so on my .30 Stingray since it's a wildcat. The set they created were dead on.

    My 2-cents? Go with the 7 ogive. They're a lot easier to tune compared to the 10's.

    I've shot LT-30 in my 6 PPC and it works well. Seems to be a bit less humidity sensitive compared to LT-32. Start around 26.5 grs and go up slowly. I capped out around 27.5 grs. It's fast for the...

    Excellent point Al. The process I described WITH the bullet uses standard 30 BR powders (ie, 4198, LT-30, etc). Pistol powders under a bullet as you described is absolutely a bomb.

    If your chamber is 0.330" at the neck and you're aiming for a loaded round of 0.328", you need a smaller bushing. Try 0.324" or 0.325" and seat the bullet long. It'll get pushed back and jam into...

    I bought a 100 of their 0.925" 30's a few years back, but have yet to try them. They weigh about 3.5 grs less than Hines. I spot checked a bunch and found wall variation to be 0.0003" or less. ...
