Hoping this is a reloading project and not a headspace issue.
Quoting myself ... I've had the test loads built for a few months just haven't tried them. The biggest issue was a tight chamber due to carbon I could not see. Let it soak days between cleanings and got it smooth. Bought some fancy Hornady chamber measuring tools and used a modified case to find the lands. Built a few scope baseline loads and some test rounds with different charges, all same length. First time I have ever loaded off the ogive for a chamber without using OAL. Maybe I will try it Thursday. I could then build the rounds for Dad and be done.
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from goin' insane.

I’m still loading my own. I’ve been going down the rabbit hole of reloading 444 Marlin into .410 shells.
