First I would like to thank all here who assisted me in answering my many questions about fireforming brass.
I've been working on fireforming brass and developing a load for my Surgeon Scalpel.
My son was visiting on leave before a shipping out to arm-pit-istan.
I shot this group. This was the first group of serious loads since fireforming brass and dealing with delay after delay with electronic powder scales (PACT, Acculab, & Sartorius all failed me).
I must say I am seriously impressed with Surgeon's work.
This was x5 shot group @ 100 yds from a <span style="text-decoration: underline">bag</span> <span style="font-style: italic">not a sled</span>, 7mm WSM, RL-25, Fed215M, Norma brass, Berger 180 VLD's.
Velocity was down for the distances I want this to shoot, so I am hoping the spread will not open up too much with another 200 fps.
<span style="font-weight: bold">+1 for Surgeon!</span>

Geeez, that's all the better you could do?

I don't think I could do that at 10ft with a target .22 pistol. And pistol shooting is my "strong point" in shooting!

I hope your load recipes work out for you!

Here she was a few months ago.
I made a muzzle brake for her but I can't put it on until I've got the loads worked out.
