    Once my new laptop screen comes in and my QL update, I will find out what it says about those loads.

    Thanks.

    Hornady data seemed WAY off and scared me with the results. The Sierra data seems spot on.

    Are you using any filler like Dacron? If not that would make a difference in the loads.

    Glad you were the Guinea Pig on those. Think I'll try them.

    Here are 50 of the 300 trainers all ready to kill deer and pigs. I have plenty more cases to play with the heavy cast.

    I guy can't help but smile looking at those.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    67gr H4198 requires no filler. The case is pretty full with powder.

    Ok wasn't sure. I knew playing around with a Lott the filler made a difference on some loads

    The original Hornady load data I tried could have used filler. But, once I switched to the Sierra data, there was no need.

    What are you using to hold the loaded cartridges in in that picture? The silver looking thingy? Mine are all green or gray and plastic.

    MTM Reloading tray. Got them on sale or clearance once.

    I use them for anything larger than .308/'06 size case head that won't fit in the normal .40cal ammo trays that I use.

    That's the same as I use, it just looked like it was chromed in your picture.
