First reloads fired, and the jury is in

Hello All,

Fired my first reloads today through my Browning Stalker .270.

Thanks to all of you for helping me get to this point.

For those who are interested, the best group went to:

Hornady 130 Grain #2639 SP
IMR 4831 52.8 gr. @ 2800 fps

At 100 yards, 3 shots within a dime, and one outlier, all 3/4" high.

Good enough for dinner.

Great loads and great shooting. Isn't it about the most satisfying thing you've ever done? The wonderful world of reloading is just opening up to you.

Good luck and great shooting.
