Went to the range today and shot that load. so today I bumped it up a 1 grain I'm hoping to find the sweet spot. I'll clean the bore and sex up the gun with a good cleaning. John Taffin's load for 245 grain cast was 24 grains of powder with a gas check. But like a lot of reloaders I'll work this out. I've have a little leading in the barrel from some earlier shooting. There is no muzzle blast with a fire ball and recoil is mild. In the morning I will bump the round and again. So first load was 20.3 - 21.3 - 22.3 - 23.3. Any thoughts from any of you.
Reloading during the Holidays again the reloading press was in action. My cast bullet supply is getting low the CCI MAG primers are low but the bullets are stacking up. So all is good in my world. I'm off for 6 days and with a little time and patience on the wife's part I should get half my brass loaded.
Well today I was in the reloading/gunroom. The press and myself were running smooth. I'm starting with The 22k Hornet brass and then will move on to the other calibers. Boy those small calibers bullets are a pain but steady always wins over speed.
Maybe someday I'll get back to reloading.
