Well, I'm hooked, shot my first batch of hand loaded today. Sweet, much more satisfying than buying $10 re-loads at the local range.

Thanks to the guys who helped with my question on deformed cases. I went back through the setup and the mouth wasn't being flared enough.

I must say the rounds had a little more kick than I'm used to. Usually shoot Winchester, 115g FMJ. I handloaded, 115FMJ over 4.6g of Bullseye. A little more kick but I was also able to get an inch off my best grouping yet (OK maybe I'm being optimistic it might have been 1/2 or 3/4 of an inch less.) :-)

No problems what-so-ever with the rounds I handloaded.

Well, on to the next 400 rounds...
