I loaded the Serviceberry with loads from 40.8gr RL7 up to 41.8gr. I filed down the edges of the seater plug in the seater die so that it doesn't booger-up the meplats. I started with 40.8 because I am thinking that is an accurate load worth double checking.
I didn't go all the way to 42gr because I have a hard time grasping the amount of powder I am using, so I am going slow and only went up to 41.8gr.
50 yards
I started with the 40.8gr load and...well, I could gone home right after those first three shots and I would have been happy. Not that I was disappointed with the events that fallowed, but that first three shot group was very satisfying.
