Nice score! I have the RCBS with all of the collets. Only use it for.308 though. Anything else I load is production style and needs some kind of motor. The Giraud seems to be the one that will follow me home at some point.

I reload also, but wasn't sure if I should post on the 'reloading bench thread' or this one.
I haven't really touched my stuff for years, but I wasn't happy with the pattern on my Ruger 7 mag. I was able to get it within 1 inch at 100yds. after reloading.............so it made me smile. 2.5 inches was all I could get with factory loads.
I traded my Browning A-bolt for this one even up.............because my browning was afflicted with the 'vertical stringing'. The warmer the barrel got.........the more it would stray. Dunno the amount of stray...........because I couldn't hit a 12' x 12' piece of paper after the second shot. First shot was always a bullseye

Should have free floated the barrel and glass bed the action, bet it would have shot much better.

there's a micro adjuster for the one end, like a micrometer. Think i will be getting that for it. rough adjust with jam nut and dial in the thousands.

I tried floating it. There was no change in accuracy. I found out later that some a-bolts had the vertical stringing problem, that's when I got rid of it.
I floated the barrel on the Ruger before I ever fired it.

I'm sure there is a reason for the stringing. If it's happened to your rifle, it has happened to others. I typed it in Google and there are many with the same problem. Could be firing pin problems, bedding problems, barrel problems, bolt lug contact problems, etc.etc.
I haven't reloaded in about 15 years but still have all the equipment, 2 rock chuckers, some smaller presses, a A2 if you know what that was, seems to remember the case trimmer was Forester? Inside and outside neck reamers, primer pocket cutters etc.etc. Few different powder throwers, Lyman, Redding, Belding and Mull, i used to think consistent volume was more important than consistent weight, though i used to use mostly stick powders.

I can't recall what the problem was, I read it in an article in a magazine. I traded the gun even up for the Ruger the following day. It is stainless also with the composite stock. And it kicks like a mule.

I have the single stage RCBS reloader, I bought it as a kit. I didn't need speed as I only load enough for me to hunt with.

Gotta love seeing that barrel bend like that.

That's pretty neat to see the barrel whip like that. If the ammo was consistent, your point of impact wouldn't change. In theory, the flex would be in the same place each time the bullet left the barrel.
If i had a rifle that shot 12moa, it would be a never ending challenge to me to have it shoot good, i would figure it out one way or another.

Latest project, 1965,or 66 Remington bdl varmit .223, which my dad bought new at Sugermans or Mermelsteins. I used to shoot this some years ago and it sat in a closet for many. Took it out this year to clean and oil it, factory stock was pushing against the side of the barrel on the end real bad. Instead of hogging out the wood, i decided to buy a Boyds thumbhole laminated stock for it. $99. Epoxied aluminum pillars in it a week ago and put on a cheap 3x9 scope (till i find something a bit better) and a $8 rechargeable (18650 battery) led flashlight with a genuine red led, not a filter or lens. Going to be my fox/coyote rifle. 1-12" twist so 50 grainers for now.

I been looking for a 223 cal. Remington 700 with a 1-14 twist barrel for a year now. Awesome rifle for groundhogs, I'd be driving 36 grain pills at warp speed. :shock:

I think you are gonna have a hard time finding that twist on that caliber with a factory barrel. Going off the top of my head, older 223 rem 700 varmint 1/12 twist, newer varmint 1/12 twist, newer sps tactical light barrel 1/9 twist. Some 222 had 1/14 or even 1/16. I have 2 older rem 700 22-250's, one heavy barrel one light, both have 1/12. Newer heavy barrel versions have 1/14 i have read. Have older ruger 77v 220 swift that has 1/14. Aftermarket barrels you can get anything you want. That is going to set you back about $300 for the barrel plus installation. But then, you will have just what you want.

I have a R700 SPS AAC in 308. They have a 1-10 twist barrel.

All of my other 223's have 1-7 or 1-8 twist but PA won't allow me to WHACK whistle pigs due to them being " self loading". LOL

I been using a 22mag for exterminating varmints. Hornady makes a 36 grain pill that flies at 2200 fps in 22 mag. They do a number on anything under 40lbs. A slow twist .223 would be the hot ticket with hand loads to increase my range.
