I’m a pretty lean guy so I can’t hide a gun at my 4oclock. So I appendix carry. Maybe not anymore
See I'm the oppisite. I'm not lean and can't appendix carry, so I carry at the 4:00-4:30
Just a guy who loves guns, beer, food, family, and all kinds of stuff.
Draw deadline for AZ Deer/Sheep is Tuesday. Just put my draw in for me and my youngest. I'm going for Whitetails only in two different units. For my boy, I put him in for Youth only, any antlered deer, in two units, and a youth only, any deer, in a unit near the AZ/UT border.
I bought a point only for my son for Javelina, and a point for me in bighorn sheep.
I may be late to the party on this one, but thought I’d share for anyone else late to the party.
Found an app called SubMOA for the iPhone that allows you to measure your group size. The thing I really like about it, is you can set your guns info and it saves your group sizes. So you can track your average group size for that rifle and you.
It’s a free app, but the little I’ve played with it it doesn’t seem like there’s adds on it.
Here's the results of my testing for you @donnie
I ran the Lee Auto Drum on a Lee Rifle charging die on my single stage press. I feed each charge into the same .308 case, and measured the charge on my Chargemaster. I didn't set a target weight, I just set the meter to a charge weight near .308 charges. I also didn't adjust the settings from the 4064 to the Varget. As you can see the Varget gets about /12 grain more charge, for the same amount of volume as the 4064. I had one charge on the 4064 of 37.7. If you throw that one very high charge out, the ES would drop down to 0.5 grains just like the Varget.
This is not the level of precision that most of us here look for usually. But for bulk semi auto feed rounds, I think its not bad. As long as your barrel has a decently wide node, you should be able to load up a charge in the middle of the node and keep all your charges in that node.
@donnie I have a Lee Auto Drum and it works well enough. I use for pistol and plinking loads mostly. Most of the time I’m running BL-C2 through it for .223, but I have ran Varget through it. I did not weigh out the charges, but I also didn’t have any charge issues with those 200 rounds.
If your not in a hurry, I can run some test throws through it this weekend with Varget or 4064 and see what they weigh out at.
people have pushing for faster reloading time and spending more money on it. But in my mind, is it worth the trade off?
Yes, it's worth it, if you like hitting exactly what you're aiming at.
If you have low expectations... then perhaps it's not worth it. I shoot with the goal of having my bullet hit the exact center of what I'm aiming at. I've spent tens of thousands of dollars toward that end. You don't achieve the kind of precision and accuracy I achieve without spending money.
You simply do not. Those claiming otherwise will NEVER back up what they claim. ... and in the off chance they can do it once, they will not be able to do it again.
Very true, you’ve bought the best there is and at this time that’s not within my reach. When comparing a $100 balance beam and trickers to a $300 electronic is the speed you gain worth the cost of accuracy lost?
I also thought it wasn’t just coincidence that the Prometheis a balance beam scale. It’s the best powder dispensary unit made right now. One doesn’t have to wonder why he didn’t design it with a electronic scale.
