I broke the cycle! I had a very good range day yesterday morning, three hours worth.
The Labradar stayed on the shelf, and the new Caldwell Chrony G2 took care of business. I put approximately 100 shots across it, and it did not miss one, and it did not fail to Bluetooth a single shot's data to my phone. With my location setup, it captured both temperature and pressure for each string. This is a big chronograph; I think that is a good thing. On a solid tripod, it does not wiggle in the breeze we have here in South Texas. It's inverted design is smart, with the screens on the bottom they are always reflecting light up to the device, so the lighting was not needed.
I guess I would have to say that I've become a Caldwell nerd. Stable table, brass catcher, Chrony G2, wind meter, and target cam. Target cam is not shown as I was shooting the 30 Carbine at 50 yards. The cost of all that is what I have into the Labradar:?
Anyway, the Universal 30 Carbine liked the PPU 110-grain soft points with Lil-Gun. Will be over on Grafs in a bit for more of them. I will also go ahead and finish up the Hornady bullets. I did all the incremental work with the PPU on the Load-Master. I always thought a progressive press not suited for this work, but I was wrong. I do have to do some more filing on the bullet feeder die port. It is just a bit short for the length of the PPU.
I switched my Win M94 from cast to the Speer 180-grain HCFP. Right inside the muzzle, there are some tooling marks from the rebore, and I think that is what the cast bullets are not liking. I had thought about lapping the barrel, but I don't want to open it up any. I thought I would send a hundred bullets out the barrel over the coming year to see if that can settle things down before revisiting cast. The rifle and cartridge love the Speer bullet. Great shooter!
Next up was my Sav 10FCM Scout chambered in 7.62x39 with the Speer .308 150-grain HCSP. Ooow... the rifle likes the bullet. It is spitting them down range at 2400 FPS and is an MOA shooter. It goes on the Collet die next and will see if it becomes a sub-MOA shooter. This rifle would probably fit all my hunting needs here in Texas.
Yep, it was a great morning!
