Another Noob from Texas

Hello all thanks for the add. 
Bought my grandson a T/C Compass 6.5 Creed.  Bullets arrived today 143 ELD X .  Found some H4350, CCI 200's and the dies will be in Thursday.  Both my sons have one apiece.  Looking forward to loading this round I have a Grendel that I really like this one is a step up.

Welcome Popeye212!

A buddy bought a T/C Compass in .308 this fall, he has not found any load that he's happy with to date. I was going to get in on the deal he got, which was awesome, once he told me the difficulty he encountered getting it to be at least an MOA rifle, I decided to hold off. I'll be curious to hear how your grandson does with his.

It has shot sub moa with 143eldx and 123 eldm it seems to like the 123eldm (.541 at 2844 fps) the best so far.  I haven't started tuning the loads for it yet but it is a shooter

It is a T/C Compass I bought for my grandson and both my sons have Creeds.  I am loading for one son with a Stag AR10 LH and my grandson.  My oldest son has a Savage he using in competition.  Looks like I will be buying one because I "NEED ONE"  for load development.   Currently have a 6.5 Grendel I built, a .270 and .223  I load for them also

Thanks I have been watching him and Ultimate Reloader.  Johnny is a great source of amusement at times I double check him before I try anything he posts.  He is a good source for which combos MIGHT work but I reference his loads against 3 different books and published load data.  My grandsons gun is giving excellent results so far.  We have some work to do with my sons AR10 creed.
