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.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
