I loaded up more test loads for the 7mm/08 last night.I bought some Plano ammo boxes at Academy last year,and have never used them.
After loading the shells-40 total,20 with H4350/4 different charge weights and 20 with IMR 4350/4 different charge weights,I put them into one of these Plano shell boxes. The lid wouldn't close!
The OAL of these loads are only .022" longer than a factory spec length.I guess Plano doesn't want anyone to use their products for custom handloads.
Today,I go out to the shop to put these loads in another(taller) ammo box,and just as I start swapping them out,I knocked the ammo box with the loaded shells off the bench,and they all go rolling across the floor.
I wanted to kick myself in the ass for doing this!!!!!
So,Then I spent another hour or so with a bullet puller,so I could get all of the different powder's and weight charges figured out,and put them all back together again.
I'll be tossing these Plano ammo boxes in the trash,all of my ammo is longer than factory spec,and I really don't want to do this type of thing again.
