You sound like a father who really knows and cares what his son(s) want. From what I read, I
would suggest a gun that:1. Tells your son you are proud of him2. Is accurate enough to engage

Mine uses the Beretta/Benelli style choke tubes. Here's a picture of my modified choke. It came
with a turkey choke and I couldn't hit a clay to save my life!!!155759

Suggest you visit Steve's Reloading Pages....just google it, you'll find it. Then compare his
load data to what your manuals have. You'll see a big difference in what he considers a max
load or a star...

I found an interesting article regarding the lopsided case bulge. It seems I have nothing to
worry about. I'll probably experiment with the lower node around 41.0-41.5 just to be safe.

I just took another really good look at the brass... Absolutely no ejector marks whatsoever,
however I did see some light primer flow in 5 of the cases. Must have been the 42.6? Also,
there seems to b...

It looks like there may be an accuracy node between 42.0-42.4155345Before packing up for the
day, my buddy asked to take a few shots at the 200 yd target. I had a box of hunting rounds

Thanks for everyone's input. I got a chance to test the new powder yesterday and am very
pleased.I am now convinced that my 1-10 twist barrel prefers the 178-180gr variety. I have
tried a ton of diffe...

Thanks for the advice. Although the max charge data is very different the velocity numbers seem
to match up. Hornady's 41.3 @ 2400Speer's 43.0 @ 2521IMR's 45.6 @ 27282400 seems pretty slow
for a max c...

You did damn good. I really like the big dots on my 17. You have yourself a really flexible
