FIRST TARGETS

Somehow this post stayed in the Draft folder and never got published... perhaps it's a bit late to be adding it now, but I was rather pleased with the results of my first attempt at making ammo so I'll still share the pics:

The first batch of reloads:

And the first 10 targets:


Over the past month I've been experimenting with powder levels, and have also tried cheaper lead bullets. So far, 5.9gr of HS-6 shoots the best. FMJ-ENC bullets have given me more consistent rounds - both dimensionally and in groupings. Overall, buying a press has greatly improved my shooting. Though it was a much greater expense than a couple of boxes of WWB, it was a very good decision in the end.
