    223 load Vihtavuori N135 or n130

    I am using Vihtavuori N140 (25grs) in my Remington 700 (.223) with Lapua bullets (69gr), this equates to 2811 ft/s. It seems a very accurate load. Load works fine in my rifle, unsure about others. https://www.vihtavuori.com/reloading-data/rifle-reloading/?cartridge=7

    Ruger 10/22 AR chassis

    I have a Magpul X22 stock on my 10/22 and I cannot fault it (better than the Hogue stock it replaced)

    6.5CM, RS62, overpressure signs.

    When changing powders to Vihtavuori for the 6.5CM, I was advised by someone who has forgotten more than I know to use N160 for 139s, but N150 for 123s.

    6.5CM, RS62, overpressure signs.

    I use N160 (41.5) using Lapua 139s, in my (son shoots) Ruger PR (24" barrel). Getting approx. 2614 ft/s and no problem operating the electronic targets at 1000 yards. Yes, I could load no powder, but haven't felt the need. For reference using N160: 41.0 - 2574 ft/s 40.5 - 2554 ft/s

    There are a couple of different types: https://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Freloadboss.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2018%2F03%2FleeCaseTrimmer.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Freloadboss.com%2Fhow-to-use-lee-case-trimmer%2F&docid=Ud76EpxtGeMvQM&tbnid=L6wYj63BCjmR2M%3A&vet=10ahUKEwingoXUwe3mAhXRVRUIHR1FCg8QMwibASgBMAE..i&w=900&h=675&bih=935&biw=1920&q=lee precision case trimmer&ved=0ahUKEwingoXUwe3mAhXRVRUIHR1FCg8QMwibASgBMAE&iact=mrc&uact=8 and https://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fleeprecision.com%2Fimages%2FP%2F90670.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fleeprecision.com%2Fcase-conditioning-tools%2Fcase-trimming-tools%2F&docid=bsBoNI669RN8XM&tbnid=MGab-m1m3SQa3M%3A&vet=10ahUKEwingoXUwe3mAhXRVRUIHR1FCg8QMwihASgEMAQ..i&w=300&h=300&bih=935&biw=1920&q=lee precision case trimmer&ved=0ahUKEwingoXUwe3mAhXRVRUIHR1FCg8QMwihASgEMAQ&iact=mrc&uact=8#h=300&imgdii=Qb3X9O3Ej831QM:&vet=10ahUKEwingoXUwe3mAhXRVRUIHR1FCg8QMwihASgEMAQ..i&w=300 I initially used the first type, but found it a bit of a faff, when trimming 50 cases, so now I use the second link and it is quite easy.

    Seb joypod wanted

    Agreed, I wanted a second hand SEB rest and was lucky enough to be offered one for sale (only a couple of months ago). It was the original version (now discontinued), but suits my requirements.

    Tictac .223 F-Class Build

    What made you choose the Onyx chassis´╗┐, over the other MDT Chassis systems; weight?
  13. These are a great scope, I have one on my AT and whilst I do want another for my RPR, a little out of my price range at the moment.

    Reloading for .308 - powders

    I am using N150 with 185s. Using 42 grs this achieves 2579/2569/2560 = 2569ft/s average. https://www.vihtavuori.com/reloading-data/rifle-reloading/?cartridge=30 For comparison, when using IMR4895 with 185s, using 42.3grs the average velocity was 2629 ft/s
