New handload complete need some help

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can go, without joining a club, to chrono my round. Buddy got rid of his chrono. Perhaps someone has one that would be willing to let me utilize theirs, or knows where around the metro I can? Thanks.

short of gettin your work-up round cronied you can get a pretty good idea from your reloading manual but, you probably already know that. E mail your recipe to me and lemme see if I can help ya out. I'v have a crony for years and they aren't that spendy. GRNKPR @AOL.COM

You can get a good one for $100. With being a handloader, it seems only logical to get that to. I got one and it seems to be close with the book.

You are probably right, I always had my buddies to use so I never had to bother looking into one. I figured Bill's gun shop would have one, but they don't, and I'm real tight on cash right now so I might have to ask santa for it. I think this round is the trick, got it out to 675m but I want to chrono it and get a traj. card ready before I take it all the way out to 1500m. I don't feel like throwing unnecessary rounds away. Do you guys know what local stores cabela's gander mountain that would likely have them in stock?

Remington 300 RUM cut and cleaned brass, 155gn Berger VLD BT, 96 gn RL22, Rem 9 1/2M primer is the recipe. Should be around 3600 fps according to reload data but "around" isn't good enough.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
