Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Did you find any of my FN 7mm bullets in the dirt? I put enough of them there it should be an easy hunt!

I did! And a bunch of .308 and 8mm.
Everyone did well. A fun match to be sure.

That is great shooting and a nicely presented posting. Does your load produce extremely higher velocities over factory (Norma) loads?

2,600 FPS at our elevation. At seal level 2,550. Others use 28.5 grains and 2,700 FPS. I found it was not needed and I get very good case life.
