    Friends don't let friends, reload without manuals. I see people asking all the time, what others use on their guns, not wanting to do the work.

    It's not, not wanting to do the work. But if 9 guys with a 308 prefer varget with 165gr. Bullets, then that would or could be a first choice of powder rather than "try out" 2 others first.

    For the most part....many shooters do not practice enough to be able to shoot the same way each and every day. Many is the handloader who is without the proper means to hold a weapon the same way each and every day.

    For a pistol....a Ransom Rest takes away a lot of "you" out of the equation and thereby giving a thumbs up to rounds that might otherwise be though of as inaccurate by a guy who just can not shoot well that day.


    ...the same goes for rifle rounds that are thought inaccurate by guys who do not test them in a rifle rest.

    Once accuracy is proven in them it becomes very tell just how bad some people actually do shoot.

    Our big mallet gets a few workouts a month. We endear what's left over as an "idiot gauge."

    I have purchased a few very nice rifles over the years that people have sworn up and down that they just never shot better than a one foot group....which immediately changed when I put a different scope on it.
