Me?  I annealed every last piece of 6.5x47 in the house.  Sizing & polishing later tonight.


What did YOU do?

Well it wasn't yesterday, but Friday night I loaded a new load to try in the 308. 45.1gr H4895 and 155gr Sierra 2155 Palma which is the old profile but I got a deal on a bunch of them.

Tore down two of my 1050s all the way, cleaned them all up, repacked the bearings and reassembled.  I was going to do the same to number three 1050, but got bored and went back to loading rifle ammo on my 550.  223 Ackley and 6 Grendel with Varget.

If I had your money, I'd burn mine.  Lol

Last night I actually up for a match for this coming weekend. I never have ammo loaded a half a week in advance.

Today I loaded what I hope will be my last of my test loads for my first Iowa PRS Club Match in April.  I'm still waiting for a 6.5 barrel for another build so I'm going to shoot 5.56.  I'm looking at loading a 77 gr SMK over 8208XBR.  My last chrony results showed 2700 fps.  If I can get 2750 without any pressure signs I'll be happy.

Not today, but last weekend I loaded up 211 rounds of 6.5x47 in hopes of my can coming in this week.  I got the call Monday Night, picked it up on Tuesday, and hit the range on Wednesday.  All I have to say is "Why didn't I buy one years ago?"

Prepped about 400 pieces of 6X47L brass and now I'm about to load up a couple hundred rounds.

I've got matches to shoot the next 3 weekends in a row so this is the big loading/testing weekend.
