Circular Reasoning in regards to the range report

Buddy B: It's bitchness is sweet.

Me: Bitch!!

Buddy B: It's sweetness is bitch

Me: Sweet!

Today was my best day yet in shooting my Ruger 10/22. I even shot weak hand with my CZ Rami and I did decent with that as well. Well, at least I hit the paper target, although no where near was I printing decent groupings. I like shooting 147 gr FMJ through it and I bought some 147 gr RN to reload. I need to work up a load for it though. I just haven't the relevant reload data, as I am not satisfied with what Lyman has to offer. The slug seemed to seat too deep in the case. I'm afraid I'll overpressure the barrel. Off to clean my guns.

I'm not able to reload, so I just shoot factory rounds... and yeah, if you seat em too deep, you WILL get an overpressure!

NFO - It wasn't pretty, it went immediately into my DO NOT SHOOT ON PAIN OF DEATH AND BLOWN UP GUN PILE of ammo. Luckily it was only the first of the fiteen cases I had charged with gunpowder to work up the load. -sigh-
