  2. It’s a non story . Canada geese are a pain in the backside , and can do more damage than pigeons in certain cases . We shoot a good number of them each year . Most seem to taste like shite too , however the dogs and the rest in the village seem to love them .

    Hornady 178 Precision hunter v my home loads , bit of fun

    I also have a chargemaster which I tend to use for undelevers nowadays, the thing is a god send ! I only went over to the Sartorius for my smaller calibres ( .22 hornet ect ) when your only using on average 10 grains of powder 0.1-2 grains has a massive impact. the Sartorius has given my smaller calibres a new lease of life .

    Hornady 178 Precision hunter v my home loads , bit of fun

    Yes I was shooting prone and with a small GRS squeeze bag at the rear . I wouldn’t say firm as such , the rear was freeish but front slightly loaded on bipod overall though most certainly not to the point of tension. And yes the Sartorius can be as tedious as you want it to be , but it is nice to have the option to be as nerdy as you want too 😁 ( which I can be ) the auto trickler does take the pain out of the whole process though .

    Hornady 178 Precision hunter v my home loads , bit of fun

    I have quite a few pics that I took today but it just won't let me upload them , but looking at the results from my simple real word test of my home loads compared to its equivalent off. the shelf , I think I know where my money is going . to be fair though the factory stuff did meet all expectations and would do the job its intended for and very well I might add , but its still nice to know that all our hard work and hard earned cash has paid off with the better results . anyone wondering what gear I used for my loads petterson brass fed gold medal primers RS52 powder hornaday 178 ELD-X cases all trimmed and full lenth sized powder weighed with Sartorius ENTRIS 64-1S readability 0.0001g rifle was a Tic-Tac A1 24" barrel Jet Z compact sound mod scope = Leupold Mk 5 HD 5x25x56 35mm tube ( not be confused with standard mark 5 )

  10. Evening all. Well after a few weeks of harvest time madness we finally finished on Friday night (well until Monday and the last few hundred acres of drilling) and so after a good old fashioned lay in I woke up sat morning wondering what to do with myself after such a busy few weeks. And it got me thinking about what a mate of mine said about all the lonely boring nights sat in my gun room reloading. my response was quite simply “I enjoy it! I’ve been at it for 25 years plus and it’s all I know really “ To which he replied …… yes but is it really worth it? Well is it. with all the modern techniques that the big company’s use nowadays, is it really worth the hassle of reloading? So lets see … Please keep in mind this is buy no means meant to be scientific, it’s just me having a bit of fun. testing my Home loads against the mass produced (high end) Hunting ammo out there, by matching the same bullets against my home loads but improving them to the best of my abilities . So sat morning (as in yesterday) I called into my local gun shop and picked up 20 rounds 0f Hornaday precision hunter ammo 178 ELD-X to compare with my 178 ELD-x home loads I loaded up 20 of my home loads using the same heads but obviously my recipe, And after a few test shots and a 100 meter zero on both lots of ammo so can get some data on both. So, after a quick half hour data mining I was ready to rock n roll. Test conditions was a follow ‘s I wanted to give it a good run for their money, so I decided to push them out to an even 500 yards (more than any normal hunting situation, but hey it’s all good fun) both loads shot @ 500 yards with a 100 meter zero there was a 4-6 mph NORTH/EAST WIND and that was about it ! and so pics coming .....
