It depends on what you're loading. The compromise of 2/10ths of a grain is a lot greater on a 2.8 grain charge in a 9mm than it is in a 59.0 grain charge in a 30-06.
agreed- especially when the load range from start to max is 3 or 4 10ths. I was referring to the LR shooting mentioned though, so bigger charges.

"Peace,quiet,wildlife.. Now im starting to dislike you "

Don't... love me like a brother. You might have been jealous when I had ten acres of rural land and a 3,000 foot house with three car garage, a shop and two storage buildings plus a single point 100 yd range with concrete top bench where we had been from '87 until last May when the bank repo'ed it all. Now I'm in a small mobile home park inside the small town city limits. I and the wife of some 54 years are beat up but still together, thank the Lord, and as happy as ever. I do miss my shop, loading room and private range but the economy, etc, did a financial number on us; even so I've learned to enjoy where I am and who I'm with!

Good luck to you! (ALL of you!)

We are all on this earth for a finite amount of time. From the sounds of it, you had a hell of a run from '87 until last May, a run that would make any one of us think we were on cloud nine. I envy your past successes, and hope you find peace and enjoyment in your current situation as well.

if you had it to do all over again, would you really rather have spent your "good" years skimping and saving for when you were too old to REALLY enjoy it

Happy shooting

Well said Friend. You hit the most important things in life right on the head there. Keep the spirits up and the wife happy and all will work out in the end.

Bless you both
