    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.

    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
