  1. Hornadys manual for 168gr starts 36.3 and max 46.1 VV doesn’t have published load for the Hornadys 168, instead they have Sierras 168gr 38.6- 44.5 Berger 168gr 39.5-42.8 I started with 42.5, 43.0, 43.5 grs- this load produced the better accuracy. these was shot from a Tikka T3X Varmint 20”, Coal 2.800“, will try 2.810” if it fit in the mags. belus thanks for the feedback
  2. Gentlemen, loading now 308 using this combo N150 and Hornady 168 on 550would , would you consider plus/minus .1 gr of powder drop a big inconsistency?, and about N150, with 44grs the powder is already on the neck level, is this normal, ? this is my first attempt to load 308, was limited with 223 before. so I back out my load to 42.grs pretty in the mid
  3. Hi its a 223 Rem with 24” Heavy Stainless 1:8 bbl, Tried different bullet weight from 55, 62, 68 and 75 grains, factory rounds to handloads, all ammo will group sub moa, however the 55gr will group 3” right away from the POI from the other bullet weights, elevation is in line with other weights , still grouping sub moa though, any thoughts? Thanks
  4. Btw, powder funnel that comes from dillon conversion kit r?, or the Redding comes with their own powder funnel?
  5. Hi want to start loading for 308, for versatility of powders I want try the Redding Match BR Powder Measure, Dillon has an Adapter for this setup, so aside from the Adapter and 450 Powder Die which is needed, what else do I need?, same powder funnel that comes with the conversion kit?. thanks
  6. When adjusting Eye Relief of your scope do you fo it in Prone Position or Benched ? Something that’s applicable to all possible positions , thanks
  7. Good Day A beginner questions here, my experience is limited to AR shooting mostly 3 Gun and IPSC, I usually have a different setting when shooting unsupported and shooting prone, usually I moved the stock longer by one notch up to get the best eye relief on prone position. I am in the process of learning / joining long range and precision shooting with a Tikka T3X Varmint bolt action, got the scope ( 4-18x44) and planning to order the MDT chassis . MDT Chassis has the option for the stock preference, fix or carbine using buffer tube and stock ( AR type) which I think can allow me to

    Parallax

    So different magnification has different side focus settings? Is It okay if I set the side focus at 200 yards and my 100 yards will be parallax free?
  11. When setting the side focus for the Parallax, is it necessary to go to the highest magnification, , let 100 yards with 18.5 mag, or I can go 10-12 mag at 100 yards, thanks
  12. I chose the JP 308 SCS for my 308 build, want to play around with the spring, have the JP 308 springs and 223 JP Springs, can I use the 100% 223 springs for 308, JP doesn't states the spring rates only percentage and only according to specific caliber. And anybody know the spring rates of their springs regardless of caliber. Thanks Pls include the spring rates for their 9mm SCS, also have one for my PCC.
  13. Thanks, any specific type of stone, I’m not that good with smithing, haven’t done before
