Thanks for all the feedback! Uncle Nick, I always enjoy reading your posts, very informative!
My only real motive with all of this is that the scope I just purchased (Redfield Battlezone 3-9x42) has a calibrated bdc dial for a 30 cal 168gr @2650fps. but I am going to see if they can make me a dial for my specific load. but it is not that much of a concern, as the load itself performs exceptionally well.
Thanks again everyone!
