    Annealing

    Re: Annealing I used to chuck my brass in a drill and do them by hand with fairly good results. I have since gone with a Benchsource machine and never looked back. It's much faster, more precise, and gives me a consistent result every time. Clean first, anneal, then resize. I now anneal...

    Re: OCW results. thoughts? It's hard to get much more than just preliminary information from 3 shot groups at 100 yards. Saying that, I would go 2 tenths either side of 50.5, including 50.5, with 5 shot groups. If your quest is the best accuracy you can obtain from your rifle, you must go...

    OCW results

    Re: OCW results Accurate load development requires that you hold the exact point of aim with each shot. You aren't looking for groups. You are only looking for vertical dispersion and good ES/SD's. You are using a chrono, right?
