    Ready for deer season

    I don’t know why. And I don’t have a chronograph- yet. But it seems to maybe be a feed issue? I didn’t polish those feed ramps because it works fine with the Winchester Super X Power Point 180’s. I don’t want to change anything this close to season, so I’ll diagnose it later. The Hornady 170’s don’t group as well anyway, so it’s no loss. I’ll build another one with the barrel from FleshWound and then I can spend some time tuning them and finding what loads they like.

    Ready for deer season

    My son-in-law wanted to check out his rifles before season, so I caved and shot mine a few times. I figure if I can put five shots through one ragged hole at 100 yards, any misses are me, not the rifle! I also discovered that my 350 legend (top rifle) won’t cycle reliably with Hornady 170 gr Whitetail loads, while it’s 100% (so far) flawless with Winchester 180gr. Also, Winchester 165 gr 30-06 shoot almost the same group size and placement as Hornady Whitetail 150 grain.

    Bullet sizing

    Yeah. That’s why I wonder about jacketed bullets. Seems like sizing would disrupt the structure.

    Bullet sizing

    Theoretical question (for now) I don’t even have dies yet- January or February at the earliest, I think. So, it seems like many factory loads for 350 Legend are using a .355 dia bullet. For cheap plinking ammo, that might be a good thing, but it limits the deer-worthy choices. Is this when I get set up with a bullet-squishing setup? Then a guy could find a really good .357 hunting bullet, squish it to .355 and be good to go? Is the cross sectional density still intact? Will partitions hold up and jackets stay tight?

    Good morning, friends. I may have missed a day or two. Did I mention that I HATE remodeling? I just finished shoveling. Put the Christmas lights up last weekend, to the scorn and derision of many, but I didn’t want to wait until it got too wintery. Who’s laughing now? Happy Veteran’s Day.
