Your a lucky man to have a Wife that buys you guns for Christmas!
Don

I am thankful. She is a city girl and knew no one who hunted until she met me. This will be the second gun she has given me. She gave me Browning Citori 525 as a wedding present. Shocked

Better than that, she will cook and eat any wild game I bring in although she has NO desire to hunt.

I AM a blessed man. Razz

If you don't mind, I'll be sending my Wife over for some lessons.

My dies came in today and I loaded my first .260s. I did neck up some .243 brass to give it a try. It went smooth as can be and length came out just right. I only have 20 of .260 cases, so the .243 cases will come in handy. I had a full box of 100 new .243s and probably another 300 used. I loaded the 140gr. Horn. SSTs, that I had on hand,using H414, IMR4350 and H4831SC powders. I'm hoping H414 works out the best, I have quite a few lbs. of that.

I love it when ball powder works the best.

I finally got to the range with this rifle. The 140gr. SSTs didn't do too badly, with the worst 100 yard three shot group being 1.5" and the best 1.0". The 1.0" group was achieved using 36.0gr. of Varget which isn't too bad when you consider the lightweight pencil thin 20" barrel on this rifle. I've held off buying any other bullets until I saw how these shot. I'm confident that I could use these, but being a reloader I still want better so I ordered a box of Barnes 120gr. TSX bullets to try. One thing I found very encouraging was that all the groups fired were in nice triangle shaped groups, no strings either vertical or horizontal. I let you know how I make out with the Barnes bullets.
