Do you hand load every round? Saw a show on sniper team competition once, they hand loaded every round, sometimes measuring every individual grain of powder and weighing each bullet so that each round's ballistics was 100% predictable.

Haha, no, I don't hand load every round. I wish that I had the time to do that.

Most of the rounds I shoot are match grade ammunition provided by Uncle Sam. For MY weapons though, I hand load every round. I've spent a lot of really late nights loading to be ready for the next day or a weekend get-together shoot.......

If you don't mind me asking, what scopes do you have on your riffles?

I actually have a couple of different optic combos for both rifles.... For the most part, I use a Leupold Mark 4 ERTRS on my .338 Lapua.... That 30 mm tube IS REALLY, REALLY nice to have!




On my Chey Tac .408, for this particular shoot, I used a Leupold Mark 4 ERTRS with a BORS setup.... Sorry, don't have a picture of the BORS Setup yet..... I'll post it when I get her out and take some more recent pictures of her......
