Do you get the "swipe"  mark from chambering a round and then removing it without firing?
If so it could be that you just have a strong spring on the plunger / ejector.

I have had a pair of Pentax DCF 10x binoculars for the last 10 years or more.
They are very good for the price, I would recommend looking through a pair if you can find some.

I have the Stukeys shooting bench, well I made my own just like it. It’s really nice, but definitely need to transport it with the truck, car, or atv. It comes apart easily at least, and is strong enough to run my Rockchucker reloading press on it with ease.

I find with my Harris bipod, I need to only put slight pressure on it as too much may make it twist ever so slightly. ( without a bipod stop on the bench )

The dimensions will be the same but theoretically the “grip” will be different. It would be interesting to chronograph some of those round and compare velocities. The unlubed cases should develop a little more pressure and therefore have a slightly higher velocity.
Yes that’s what I think too. I need to borrow a Lab Radar and compare.

I enjoyed reading through this post and your related post in the reloading section.  I see that you have an LRP as well.  I just purchased a B14 because there was a special price that I just couldn't pass up though I probably should have  ;)

Did you ever try the 147 ELD-Ms in your B14?  I use those exclusively in my Tikkas but maybe the shorter barrel in the B14 would suggest a lighter projectile.  Just curious if you kept on developing loads or if you switched your focus to the LRP and rifles?

If you have a list of pet loads, would be interested to hear what you had success with.

Thank you,

I will concede that the stable table is anything but portable.  That part is kind of a joke.  I keep mine in the barn and put the pieces in the bed of the Polaris Ranger when I want to use it.  I haven not tried the new lite version but I do like the one I have a lot.  Unless you have a truck, it would be a pain to disassemble the Stable Table enough to get it in a car.

                  Understand your question. You need to think seriously about how much you hunt and how long you intend to hunt. If you are a casual hunter, then something like leupold Wind rivers or equivalate will probably do. But if you are serious about hunting you should seriously consider Swarovski, Zeiss, or Leica. I know, these are very expensive, but well worth the money. I hunt here in British Columbia and have been using Zeiss for the last 25 years. Mine are 10 x 42 as I do a lot of Sheep hunting.

When you are looking at optics, try to arrange to demo them in low light conditions. Some stores will allow you to take binos out over night, if you take good care of them, and leave them your credit card number. In low light conditions you will see the difference between quality optics and average optics. Don't know about you, but my hunting experience tells me, that bigger bucks move through the night and right at first light. I have seen many good bucks right at first light that I would have never seen with average binos.

Finally, I realize that we all have budgets, but the fact remains that if you can't see it, you can't hunt it. may I know through hunting have a saying-"Buy once-Cry once". I have never regreted buying good optics, and they have allowed me opportunities, I would have otherwise missed. Good luck

+1 on the bushnells.  Very clear especially at penetrating thick stuff at long range.  I have 2 pairs of them and my son has a pair.  These are the elite model with hd glass (about $350)  Ours are also 10x42s.
Only problem so far has been the adjusting wheel will start to "wobble" when the screws that hold it on come loose.  They seem a little light built with that feature.  There is a self adhesive attached "bushnell" thin sticker that covers these screws.  All three have had the same problem. Maybe because they turn a little stiff in cold temps.  For the price the glass is great.

If you remember when we started the polishing of necks and dry lube seating you do get aboit 12 fps faster speeds.
I still polish AND dry lube, seems to give me the most consistencey in es.
Hope this helps.

Polishing the inside of the necks? Please elaborate on your process and what are you using for dry lube and how are you applying it?
