    My fav .load is the 52 gr HP bullet from Speer using a Rem or Win case with either H4895 or H380 powder and a cci small rifle primer,Misplaced the Data sheet for the dies at the moment or I'd tell ya which scoop and amt of powder I use . I load with a Lee Challenger press and Lee dies that are supplied hith the dipper.Slow but worthwhile

    Nice shooting. Have you shot any coyotes with that speer bullet? Just wondering. I do a lot of calling and always looking for something better. I have a .223 and a 22-250.

    The rifle is a discontinued Rem Model 788 ,I have killed tons of coyotes,prarie dogs and jackrabbits and even a turkey or two with this load,entrance wound and no exit ,totally vaporizes prarie dogs,and with turkey I shot one headshot and one wingbut shot and wasted no meat on either.It took me a long tome to develop this load that works so well ,But I use it now and nothing else.

    That's pretty good, but isn't the idea to hit that dark square in the middle? LOL
    Just kiddin', reload. It reminds me of a guy I used to work with. He came to the shop one day while a couple friends and I were talking guns and told us, "When I was in Nam, I could take a government issue .45 and put three shots on a dime at 50 yards!" I told him, as politely as I could, " Man, you are one lying mother trucker! Get the flock out of here with that bullspit."

    Sorry Billie, but it is possible for a Govt. issued 1911 .45ACP to put 3 rounds inside a dime at 50yds.
    He just didn't mention that it took him about 50,000 rounds to do it.

    Years ago, I worked with a guy that loved to brag about his service in Vietnam. Only problem was that he was born in '67. :angry:
