    That’s a heck of a good price.

    Holdovers versus Come-Ups.

    I really don’t think I understand the question. There are many reticles that have accurate hold overs. An example is Leupold’s TMOA. Whether I dial 10 MOA at 750 yards or use the 10th MOA hash it’s the same thing. are these “hold over marks”?

    Load for 7mm Mag

    Second on Lance's IMR7977 recommendation. It is becoming one of my favorite powders. I use it in my STW with 160's and 168's. I also had good results with it in the 7RM.

    Load for 7mm Mag

    I’ve loaded for two different friends 7mm lately. Both rifles really like IMR 8133. Temp insensitive, copper eliminating, and usually available. I just worked up a load for another friends 300 Rum with H1000 then found out we couldn’t get any more and at over 90 grains per pop a pound doesn’t go very far.

    To Fragment, or not to Fragment..

    I don’t know about picking up radio stations but years ago I was implementing an ultrasonic welding process for a medical product. An associate complained that every time we actuated the machine her teeth hurt from some metal in her mouth. Well being engineers and all we ran a controlled blind study....and she correctly identified machine actuation 100% of the time. So maybe I’m not ruling out radio stations either? I have many guns that shoots monos well under moa. Depending on the cartridge they would give me a practical range of 600-850 yards. We’ve had great performance with Barnes LRX down to about 2000fps. Never shot anything with less velocity. Although I shoot long range I really don’t hunt long range by today’s standards so the Barnes work for me. Having said that I usually sight my STW with ABLR (it shoots them well) and have a few in my pack just in case...

    I went back to a recurve in 1989. I shoot a hybrid long bow now.

    From InLine Fabrication. It’s removable so I can take the RC off and put the Dillon on I’m impressed (no pun) so far https://inlinefabrication.com/collections/quick-change-press-mounting-system
  12. I think I’ve got my limited space reloading room figured out. And it only took me 46 years.
