I decided I'd try returning a couple items to Brownells, figured I might meet with some resistance, or at least have to spend time on the phone begging.
Not so; all I had to do is login to their website, click on my order, return. I was emailed a packing slip and a label. Boxed up the parts, enclosed the packing slip, stuck the label on the box and handed it to the letter carrier. A week later the items were credited to my card. No charge for return shipping.
There's just not enough in the budget to squeeze in a mill, and all the tooling to make it useful
So, necessity being the mother of invention, I migrated over pieces of the hardware from my seating force project and instrumented the 'ole drill press. Better to be stuck in an accurate 2-dimensional world than the virtual 3-dimenbsional world I can't afford right now . Because these sensor register directly off the vise, not the handwheels, backlash affecting the readings is eliminated.
Accuracy to 4 ten-thousands is overkill for a drill press but, it's sure nice to not depend on my waning eyesight any longer
I checked my records and using a chronograph, I was seeing 2670 fps 10 ft from the muzzle with this load. My friend gave me some of his Berger 140's to try. I also know you can go over 42 gr with H4350 and not see any pressure issues, at least with a .020" bullet jump.
FWIW, I've pushed 41.9gr H4350 in my rifle and did note pressure signs sufficient for me to back down.
At the time I was using Starline brass which, if memory serves, was about 52g H2O case capacity, QuickLoad indicates that load was "Near Maximum" with a peak pressure of 56,498 psi. If I plug in the number for Alpha brass @autoxforfun posted, 49.5gr H2O, QL says that load is "DANGEROUS DO NOT LOAD" with a peak pressure of 63,501 psi.
I mention this only to illustrate that as we get closer to too much, it pays to understand all the variables which combine to build pressure. I think it was @Ranger 188 who said, paraphrased, "it's good to come home with all your fingers and both eyes" .
Below is the Hornady 10th Edition load data for H4350 with a 140gr-class bullet, 6.5 Creedmoor, this is "what I'm used to".
Also below is the current Hodgdon load data for H4350 with a 140gr bullet, 6.5 Creedmoor, this is what I see as being "very conservative" when compared to "what I'm used to".
What I stated is just an opinion, I wouldn't say its simply untrue. Given the Hornady 10th edition load manual is several years old, I'd go with "outdated", a title I wear proudly now that I'm a retired old geezer
