New Hermes Engraver

I started out using an Etch-O-Matic commercial grade kit but switched to a New Hermes Engraver. The New Hermes is faster and is more traditional. Both do a good job.

I second that.......no need to weigh PD loads.

Any good powder measure should do it. All my PD loads are done on a Dillion 550....with ball or short stick powders.

VT Epiphany Moment

I built my first VT 4 years ago after using 22-250s and 223s and 6-XCs for 25 years for PDs.

I still recall my first VT shot was about 100 yards.....a cinchy.

I was so used to the report and...

I abandoned the quest but I don't recall the exact...

Joe, I've tested 2200 in another rifle chambered with a different reamer.

Vartarg 32g vs. 40g

Why do many shooters appear to favor the 32g bullet in the VT?

When I compare the 32g VM @ 3750 and the 40g VM @ 3400 on Sierra's ballistic calculator (both speeds from Western Powder maximums)...

Thanks Joe.

I'll try that after polishing the tube. I can see there are some rough spots in the tube. Silicone carbide on a patch spun in the tube should take them out.
