    Lovex powders - opinions

    I use so70 in a 243,and so60 in 223 with good results.Also Do 73.4 in 223.Trying it is the only way to find out if it suits your needs .I have no hesitation in saying give it a try ,its good powder at a sensible price. Drum

    Lovex powders - opinions

    What calibers would you be reloading ?
  5. I dont think thats the same advert BD,that does read as though its a one off scope with a fault been sold cheap.Perhaps someone from opticswarehouse might chime in to clear this up?
  6. Cheers Paulc.Im fairly certain they were advertising scopes by IOR that had dust specs visible at a lower price that their "civilian quality"counterparts.Have looked on the interweb to find the advert again but nothings coming up on the old googlefoo.
  7. I could swear i read an advert for a military grade scope,one that had more dust particles or something compared to its civilian spec counterpart.Sure it was IOR too.But then again my vitamin d levels have been very low.🤕
  8. If i'm not mistaken dont some manufacturers sell "military grade" scopes to the public which are same spec as normal quality scopes but with a chance of more internal contamination?Im sure ive seen IOR advertise along these lines.However i am 46 so i may have imagined this.Funny things happen north of 45.

    Recommend a: Digital Powder Dispenser

    I still have the original lyman dps.Must be 10 years old and still going strong.I wouldnt trust it to dispense every load spot on though so if i want to dispense 45 grains i will punch in 44.8 and trickle up the rest.Works for me.
