since I cant edit out photobuckets attempt at a money grab I've moved this pic over to another host.


I will add that my latest lot of Hornady brass has much tighter control of case weight. This last batch was measured in at 149.85 average with a ES of 2.3 grains. That's down from the ES of 6.1 grains my very first batch had several years ago, FWIW, that batch averaged 145.85 grains over 500 cases.

Good to see the brass is maybe a little bit better... but with Lapua and Alpha brass I don't think I'll buy any more Hornady

It is nice to have choices now. For now I'm sticking with Hornady, .43 cents a case is hard to pass up, especially when you know you'll be losing a few at each match you shoot.

I have a box full of 1400 Hornady I need to use up before I buy the good stuff... or maybe I'll use it for the kids rifles...

I've been watching this guy quite a bit, he has been having some issues with hang fires and small rifle primers with VV powder.

He has a great series on the grendel too.
