In my experience ammunition that has been reloaded to "screaming fast" just for kicks is not always the most accurate load nor the most reliable.

Personally, I load my semi-auto/revolver handgun rounds for pistol performance and accuracy; and rifle rounds to the recipe THAT particular rifle/scope combination prefers at long range. I check the velocities only to verify consistency, but as long as it cycles the action and hits to POA at 20+ yards for pistols and 200+ for rifles I call it good.

My loads may be slower than max, but I can guarantee they are highly reliable and still very lethal.

I went through the young and dumb stage where I thought faster was better. So…..I throated a couple of .220 Swift barrels pushing the 4000 limit and loaded all my 357 loads pushing and exceeding the recommended Herc. Limits. Took me awhile to learn slow might be more accurate.

I got that email and when I clicked on the link I got a 502. Thinking their website got trampled by the web traffic

Picked up a bunch of new once fired 243 at the range. Well out of their buckets anyway.
Tons of 6.5 creeds but I don’t go there.

Reorganized to fit these guys onto the floor for daily use now. It is a bit packed in there right now with equipment.
