Do not fear, :drink4: Shootnstr8 I will have another 7x30 before to long I just can't go with out one :wink: .I just have always wanted a .445 SM and OLDMAN just happend to have one.Hey by the way I went back to IMR4064 velocities are better than Varget with the 139's.My last three shots with it @100yrds =0.557 Keep me posted on your shooting.
Boy, you had me worry there for a moment! Since I'm a pastor, I was thinking about holding a special healing service for you! But your commitment to get another 7-30 barrel proves that you are not that far gone! :grin:
Thanks for the word about Varget. I thought about getting a pound of it but I think I use my money elsewhere. Hornady also suggests that IMR 4064 is the way to go. I'm going to continue to experiment but it's a bit too cold to visit the range now.
I am a lucky man. I am going to get PJ's 7-30 Waters and guess what. PJ has already worked up the proper load for the 120 and the 139 gr. bullets. All I have to do is just enjoy. Although I doubt I will ever get the groups PJ did. But I will have just as much fun as PJ had. Life sure is great when things go well.
PS- PJ is a fine gentleman to do business with. Had a fine talk with him on the phone.
What denomination are you ordained in? My father is a Lutheran pastor with 35+years under his belt, I'm thinking about the seminary, right now I'm hanging in limbo teaching 5-12 band in Iowa. Just curious.
I may regret telling you this but 680 is alive and well on the surplus powder market. Hitech Ammunition has it for $59 for 8 pounds, plus shipping, of course, as well as a nice selection of other powders. There are a lot of us using them in these days of $18 a pound in the gun stores... Try this URl. If it doesn't work, do a search for hitech ammunition. http://iidbs.com/hitech
