Just got a Remington 700. Haven't shot it yet, but I intend to feed it mostly hand loads.
My first batch will be what I have on hand:
- reloaded 55gr Hornady BTFMJs over H-Varget
- PMC 55gr
- PMC 62gr
Once I have those as a baseline and some fireformed brass I think I want to play with:
- The same 55gr load adjusting the powder charge up or down and watching the groups
- The same 55gr load adjusting the resizing to get a feel for what fireformed brass can do for me/the rifle
- Different bullet weights. The barrel is 1:12 twist and should be able to drive heavy bullets.
Any other ideas for what to tinker with? Any warnings or suggestions about my plans above?
