old roper, bringing stuff to handload ammo's exactly what happened to the USA Goodwill Team in South Africa at their Nationals in 1997. Most of us brought bullet seaters, powder measures and scales, primed and sized cases and Berger's new 155 grain Palma bullet that seemed to test well for accuracy. But we had to buy South African powder; 'twas probably supplied by Musgrave Manufacturers and Distributors (Pty) Ltd in Bloemfontein near the Gen. DeWet rifle range where we shot at. It was about the same speed as IMR4895 or Varget, small extruded kernels that metered very accurate. One guy on the USA team (Tom Whittaker) lost a challenge on a scored miss at 900 meters that cost him the SA National Championship that year.
