Some No.9 powder delivered yesterday. I have not used in my .500 S&W mag so I loaded up 10 test rounds at 38.3 grains with 350 grain Boolits. Heading to a Buds place in ST. Mary's for testing. He wants to shoot it too so will bring some extra rounds. Received an email from Accurate Molds can expect my 350 grain cast molds for the 45/70 and .500 in a few weeks.

My last attempt at a post got eaten in a browser crash. Suffice it to say, my attempt at 7.62x39 fire-forming load using a 150gr coated bullet with 11gr CFE BLK did not work out. Very dirty, didn't stabilize and didn't really seal up the brass well enough. Got the gun so dirty nothing would chamber, really quick, too. Was stupid quiet. Will try 16gr CFE BLK next time, which is still somewhat below the starting load. Didn't want to load too hot due to the shoulders on the brass being marginal, but I was apparently far too conservative. Plus side, the brass DID fire correctly, so apparently the headspace was "good enough", and no obvious issues with the brass that I did shoot out the rifle. We'll see how they fare when I do a full-length resize.

My 5.56-pressure loads with 27gr TAC and a 55gr bullet worked out awesome, though. I need to shoot a lot more before I'm comfortable with the Mark7 Evo's output for 3gun matches and such, but the early return is looking quite good. Need to chrono it and see exactly what velocities I'm getting.

Not a hunt, from what he's tellin' me.
It's a "long range class" he's signed up for in Utah, or Colorado, from what I remember.
