First day out shooting reloads.

Thanks to Blast54's advice I was able to get pretty good results with my first batch of reloads. Here is a 3 shot string at 200 yards.

judging by bullet weight it's 308, which would likely mean that DPMS AR-10 of his.

Nice shooting man!

Good guess on the .308. The rifle was my Remington SPS 20" Tactical. Upgraded the stock and the trigger. Very happy with it so far.

Very nice. I've been thinking about a LR bolt gun but I can barely shoot what I have as it is. Was this at wincheck?

Looks like you've got a pretty good load on those 168s. Couple clicks of the scope and those 3 will go in the same hole.

That same rifle is next on my "to get" list.

As far as reloading, I've only ever done pistol. My .223 dies just came in the other day, but other than brass, I need to hunt down some primers/powder/bullets and you know what that's like in the current environment. Also waiting on my 30-06 dies to become available so I can start rolling some Garand food as well.

You have some great results there, I know where to go for pointers! Nice work.
