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

    Thanks everybody. They're running thru a Barret M107. Having a little issue with the taper of the bullet and the seater plug.

    My brother in law has a Barret.. I'm sure he would take some of those of your hands depending on how much u want for them.. We haven't started to reload just yet..

    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 :)
