P.S. As for the "other" topic.......I'll say this.....

At the end of the day, or discussion, ALL roads lead back to one thing............................2.2 TRILLION dollars!!!!

(many have NO concept of how much money that is)
I'm pretty sure that I used 9 grains of Unique with toilet/tissue paper. But like any time you put powder in a cartridge case, start low and work up.

One charge and cases were pretty much fully formed.

Legislation was passed the other night that allows our spy agencies to not only access people social media and anything digital without a warrant but to add remove or change content. Itís unbelievably sick and demented.

So shameful and sad.
What does this crap have to do with the topic at hand. It should be posted somewhere else.

100%, we have generations now that view the sacrifices of our veterans as gross and untenable.
They cowardly refuse to acknowledge that the only reason they are alive and have the lazy life they do today is because of those brave selfless soles.

Downunder. If I remember correctly, the H110 and W296 had always cautioned about not reducing charges very much. You might be better off with a faster pistol powder like Unique, or Bullseye or W231. Please be careful.

Default Fire forming

Downunder.
Why not just reduce the charge you want to use by 5-7 % and just shot and enjoy them. Then when they are all fire formed load as you intended.
My first wildcat cartilage in a contender was the 7-30 Waters. I picked up 100 pieces of 30-30 brass and ran them thru the 7-30 dies. Loaded them all with the 120 grain bullet I choose to use for hunting whitetails. After sighting in and shooting about 30 rounds at the bench one day I realized that they were accurate enough to use as hunting loads. It took me 6 years of checking zero and hunting to finally fire form them all.
Same thing with my latest barrel a 17 Squirrel. Startef out forming 100 pieces of 22 Hornet. This is a new barrel so after barrel break in and sighting in. I'm still groundhog hunting with cases that need fire formed.

Accuracy suffers otherwise I would just load the and shoot them.
