Did you make those rounds to go squirrel hunting? Just joking, they look nice. What are those gonna be shot out of?

Side note..... RCBS customer service was great this morning. Turns out they make a seater plug just for the A-Max bullet. Free.

$4.30 the brass was free. The A-Max were 3 bucks a piece. $1 in powder. 30 cents per primer. I have bought 50cal for $3 too, but I'm hope this is much more accurate
