Thanks everyone.
Kevin it was only 65 I was shooting at 10 am.
And Mike yes I am going to back it down A grain. I have used 86 grains for ever it seems But that was for IMR 7828. This was 7828 SSC. Which should pack down better. So I better back it down and be safe. I loaded those rounds last winter for a test along with RL 25. My data card didn't say neck or FL but they were probably neck as I save those 10 rounds for testing.

Yesterday I had A stuck case in my 340 wby.
It was the 3rd shot of A 3 shot group 86 grains of IMR 7828 ssc and 250 gr. Partition. That bullet chronograph at 3009 fps. The first 2 were both 2943 fps. I brought it home let the gun cool and with A little extra pressure I opened the bolt.
Now if that were to happen on a hunt it could be very bad. So I did A little looking on line and they claim this happens most to handloaders who neck size. I have mostly neck sized a max of 3 times before FL sizing again. But this article claimed there is really no case life gained by doing that.
Any Thoughts on Neck sizing vs full length sizing every time ?

You don't have to report it at the kill site. But you can by smart phone. I know I won't.  You can wait and do it from your home computer. MI gives you A successful deer hunter patch if you bring them in so they can check the age and for TB in some areas. This won't replace that. But it must be so they get A real accurate number of the harvest. Along with funding out more about you of course.

A freind just sent me A link. That starting this hunting season.  All deer killed in MI. Must be registered on line. With all your Information and scanning your license by phone and even locating the kill sight on a provided map. You also must tell them where you purchased your license.  Or if your at the kill sight just let them know and it will mark your location.
Heck they could be waiting for you by the time you drag it to your truck. Things are moving pretty fast these days.

My Son's and I have 10 Bear poi ts in MI.
One of my twin sons decided that this would be A good year to go. So he applied and was drawn.
And I will be going with him. And will set him up in the same place I killed My 1st Black Bear.
And hopefully get some video of him getting his 1st Black Bear. In Michigan's U.P.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Burris Eliminator 4 Scope

Just wondering if anyone on here has one of the Burris eliminator scopes.
I have watched Steve's outdoor adventures for years. And that's all he uses.  And of course it works like magic every time. The scope has gotten less ugly over the years.  But for the money if they work it would be the best of both worlds. Calculates both wind and distance. Just put the lighted dot on your target and shoot. But I only ever see them on his show.
Seems to good to be true.

You can shoot all those Texas Bucks you want.
And you can keep those Temps too !!
I complain at 85
Of course come Jan. I might be looking to visit.

Thank you Adam.
It is A Nice and useful cartridge. But I would have to change my name. And I love my 340 to much to ever change.
But I do see the value with the shorter 6 lug bolt.
Hope she's A big hit.

TD 2
I have annealed the cases with a torch. And fingers. Lol but probably not in A while you are probably right. I know some people anneal before every sizing. That just seems to extreme to me. But I really don't know how many times I sized them sense my last anneling.
I will keep track with this next batch of 50 Lapua cases. They come annealed and it's very obvious look to the new cases.
Thank you.

I always use my rcbs prep station to chamfer my Necks every time I reload. Just a second or two. To clean them up and insure A easy bullet entry.
Has anyone noticed split Necks possibly caused by chamfering. I noticed 2 spit Necks after neck sizing my .223 Lapua cases. I have FL loaded them 4 times with 3 neck sizing in-between rach FL sizing.So I got my moneys worth. But I am just wondering if chamfering speeds up neck splitting?
