Reloading / Re: 155 Palma (#2156) or 175 smk for 1000 + yards
« on: August 07, 2022, 10:09:56 PM »
Went to the range today to fire form only. It was a frustrating day at the range for me actually. My LabRadar was giving me issues in combination with the app always loosing connection. I did everything the night before, updated the firmware, connected my phone. Then all went to shits at the range. Then come to find out 20 something shots later, when I decided to turn off and turn on the LabRadar, it gave me a error of disk write protected of some sort. Pulled out the SD card to find out the lock on the side of the SD card does not want to stay on the open position, so each time when I put it in, it slides back to lock.. wt..  :wacko: Anyways I had to jimmy rig something to keep it open temporarily. I did manage to get some reads. By that time, I was frustrated as shit! So I was averaging 2850-2860 fps. There’s plenty of room yet for development, no pressure signs. I just loaded 46.4 gr of Varget. These are fire forming only. I think I can get it to 2900. If I can without too much pressure signs, I’ll be golden out to 1000- maybe 1200 yrds.

155 gr smk #2156
.308 SRP Peterson case ( no prepping done, reloaded out of the box, did put just a kiss of crimp using a taper crimp die, just in case)
46.4 gr Varget
CCI #450 SRP

5 shot groups

Development load I probably just gonna load in .2 (46.6, 46.8, and 47 maybe 47.2) 5 each. I’m thinking of also seeing what the 175’s will do so, I might do 20 of those too, but with XBR.

I just got a call from SEC for some primers that I was in a waiting list before. I believe it’s srp, or lrp or both. Or it might be pistol primers. Anyway a case each, anyone wants it, pm me. I can call SEC with your name to pick up.This Saturday deadline

Not really relevant to the subject, but thought I’d share my findings with Peterson compared to Lapua. I use Lapua or Nosler, and their pretty consistent. This is my first time using Peterson.Though all of that is a moot when one preps their own brass anyways.

.308 Peterson srp left, Lapua lrp right





Redding SAAMI spec case gauge

Case gauge set to zero



Forgot to add, these brass are brand new out of the box. No prepping..

Yea the AMP. One of the best investments in my reloading bench. A must have, especially with quality brass. I have the Mark 1 version that I bought 5 years ago. Then just got the AZTEC upgrade when it released. Cost me less then 1k from brownells after some promo codes when they use to carry it. Cool, you must have the Mark 2 version. Faster, runs cooler, and already comes with AZTEC.
I don’t point my bullets. These 155’s 2156 already comes pointed from Sierra. I do want to experiment though one day. If you go with a Giraud trimmer, they sell the Meplat blades to use with the trimmer. I got one for .223 and .308. Just never got around to getting the pointer dies, . Maybe time to try since we still slowly getting reloading components (primers and powders) coming in.. try pointing some 175 smk or 168 smk.

Finally got time to go to my bench and start some. Well, all I did was open the box of 155 smk Palma. Just to check the uniformity.

Here’s a comparison between the 155 smk (#2156c) left and the 175 smk right. They almost look identical.

Notice the closed tip on the 155? Pretty slick..

Checked the weight on these just out of curiosity..

Checked BTO on some of the 155’s which is mmm not bad I guess.
First one I set at “0”

Bullet 1

Bullet 2

Bullet 3

Bullet 4

I know I ask this before. But wanted to make sure. Question for reasons for wanting ccw license? Do I still need to answer this in writing? Or n/a is sufficient? I’m gonna apply as I already have all my required documents.

It's an entire diff process and treated separatly, even though some of the paperwork is the same. Since you're already there, might as well get the long gun permit.  Because if u also got a pistol PTA, then you would have to buy a pistol prior to going.  Unless you already had that planned, then go for it. Make the most out of the trip to HPD IMO.
I guess apply for a ccw for one of my pistols I already have. Less confusion. I just thought like “kill two birds with one stone” kind. Less trips. My Sigs are older like back in the early 90’s. Wanted to get something newer. My long gun permit still valid till the end of the year.

So since one must do a background check again for ccw, would it be better to just apply for a PTA at the same time applying for a ccw? And purchase another handgun. Or ccw must be a separate process?
