been to keep it as
simple as possible.

Once I get a load that will meet my standards, 1/2 moa
for my varmint rifles and 1 moa for big game rifles I
stop the load development.

After I have a load that meets my standards I focus on
becoming a better field shot, practicing shooting in
field positions to become a better practical shooter.

I don't chase after smaller groups because I don't
find
it necessary since I'm a competitive target shooter



I just can't leave well enough alone. I have to fiddle
with something else to tweak the load - but I am
getting better in my old age of deciding on a single
load.


I'm just not competent enough of a shooter to chase small groups

In an effort to clean up my bench, a small box to hold die wrench, small screwdriver, and other little things that make the press and dies work, has proven invaluable. My loading bench is a standard B&D Workmate from the 70's. Presses are bolted to 1"x12" oak, which in turn is C clamped to the bench top. With a 450 sizer, a Spar-T turret and Spartan C press, it's close quarters to begin with. I'm in front of a window, so no pegboard to help either. Thus I can genuinely appreciate a neat and tidy loading bench.

Still sorting bullets!!!! If a bullet diameter is .4200 as an example is that closer to 41 mag than say 45?? I have a few that are .40, .431..4212, Well you get the picture. I guess the question is does it make any difference at this close a diameter?? This is small quantities that don't make 30 rounds total so not the end of the world if I should just pitch them, although it's against my religion. Craig

Well in answer to my own question. Why don't you weight them to eliminate some if not all you dumb stupid person(cleaned up for the internet) Well I did weight the bullets and most are 180g .400 which I will load in 40 cal or 10MM. The only still weird one is a 200g .433g JHP. Any clue as to what this may be?? May be 44 mag as I did some for a friend a while back. If I can figure that out I will be there.as the rest are totaling 3 or four round total. Craig

edit to fix spelling.

Now have loaded all the 40 cal into 10mm rounds and the 5 or 6 left over are not 45 as they fall into a 45 case. May be 44 or possibly 41 mag as I used to load that and still do in 41AE. I could just pitch these as i just don't care about so few rounds. Nice to get it this far however!!!! Craig

Well I for one hope this is the last post on this subject. I was down to 3 unknown bullets. One turned out to be 44 cal 240g that I even found the empty box for so just put them back to stock as I don' even have a 44. The next turned out to be 260g for a 45 long colt that I can't find brass for. and last is 158g 357 mag jhp that I will load in 38. That's it all done but the cleaning is never done.LOL Craig

Well maybe one more. I sorted some left over brass and sorted brass i would never reload and took it to the scrap yard and got a whopping 2.20 total!!! Nice to get rid of it anyway. That's it all done.    Craig
