First Time Reloading

Some of you helped me with reloading information a few weeks ago... it was very helpful. I went to the range yesterday and shot 6 shots at 100 yards from a fixed rest. What a difference handloads make!!! I shot two three shot groups at 100 yards. Each three shot group had the bullets touching each other! I couldn't believe the difference. Here is the data...

.270 Winchester
Federal 210 primers
Winchester brass
H4831 with 54 grains of powder ( as recommended by my book )
130 grain Combined Tech. ( Nosler/Winchester ) Ballistic Silvertip bullets

It works for me. Thanks again. Triple B

H4841 is a great 270 powder. Hornday has it as the accuracy load.

Re: First Time Reloading

Mine are 58grs H4831sc with Remington 130 Coreloks. I liked what the Coreloks factory loads did to the deer I shot,just wanted a little better accuracy. This is my first experience W/handloads. Since My buddy that helped Me only had dies to coincide with Me on this caliber,this is what we tried.

Ruger Redhawk 44,SP101.357
Marlin .22

Re: First Time Reloading

Congrats to you sure makes you feel good when things work. Another little tip since you did the right thing of actual testing what you loaded. Get yourself a note book or get fancy with an offical one from and recored all your details. Your exact load th the t case, primer, powder, bullet. seating depth, date tested, tempersture, conditions such as wind and humidity, shots fired, group size and velocity if known. You get in to reloading a lot and its a great hobby you can turn back to this day what worked for you.
