I'm a new member here. This is my first post. I purchased the CBA books vol 1-3. I have learned enough to see I didn't know squat. I realize I wasted my money on a Ruger no1 in 30-30.........now.
I would like to have a discussion about reduced 30-06 loads. My goal is a trouble free load for offhand shooting @ 100yds punching paper and ringing steel. I do not want to deal with shoulder set back and I don't want to oil cases.
I started this a couple days before I received the CBA cast bullet books. My first attempt was the RCBS 180gr SP Hitek coated with GC sized .309 Brass was range pick up trimmed and cleaned with no other prep W/ 10gr Unique Offhand and bench groups were great. I was as having a good day.
I have tried NOE copy of 311299 with 11gr of unique with almost as good results.
I ordered a neck bushing that is .0015 under my average case after using the M die (will work for all brass I checked). I also ordered the correct part to measure headspace with my Stoney Point tool. Should be here soon.
I would like advice on a Unique loads that will not have shoulder set back. Im open to other powders but I don't want to use fillers.
The rifle is a Smith Corina 1903A3.
