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.
