$300/wk pay for training as a locksmith? I missed my calling in life.

I do technically have an FFL (C&R).
I'll have to read this article tonight. Still got a little bit of IMR 3031 left and was planning to load a bunch of stuff--8mm, 303, 30-06, 223--this weekend.

So 48gr IMR4895 + 175 SMK?

I have to admit I recall IMR4895 doing well, but I haven't loaded with it in probably 1.5-2 years. I do have some left.
remember military powder is not the same as what we get....and

The last paragraph in the article,
"These components and this load performed well and safely in this particular rifle. Because of variables in your reloading equipment and technique, in your firearm and in your local environment, you may experience other results, including higher pressures that may be unsafe. Always start with the manufacturer’s recommended starting load listed in their reloading manual."

How old is that article? Some of those powders are different than they were back in the last century
