    Please show us where "every single statement" he made was wrong or dangerous. Just curious.

    Other than reloading becomes addictive and you are always looking for that next edge or trick to make the perfect round, it almost becomes a sickness (mental illness) in search of perfection. How far can I take it and what is the return on the investment? Great thread.

    kwg

    There really isn't a "return on investment" per say.

    You can reload cheaper than buying factory ammo, and it can be more accurate, but I've found most people and up shooting more and buying new reloading tools, so there really isn't a savings.

    This is an extract from Shooting USA's interview with Mid Tompkins reference precision hand loading:

    Mid On Ammo

    Mid does not use practice ammo. “If it isn’t the best ammo he owns, the shooter learns absolutely nothing because they don’t know—when they shoot an 8, if they shot it, the ammo shot it, or the gun shot it.” Mid is perhaps remarkably nonchalant about prepping his brass, but he bases his opinions on years of experimenting. Yes, he trims brass to length, but feels that a thousandth or two difference among cases isn’t all that critical for Long Range competition. Nor does he worry about uniforming primer pockets and flash holes. “It may make a difference in benchrest shooting, but it darn sure doesn’t make a difference in our shooting, especially from 600 yards.”

    Mid chooses match bullets from Sierra and Berger but doesn’t use VLD-style bullets. He “soft-seats” them about finger-tight in the cases and lets the barrel seat them to depth.

    i tend to agree with that. For PRS style shooting, if i knew i was only going to be practicing speed barricades on 2-3 MOA targets, i might make some 'practice ammo' but the only difference in that and my 'match ammo' would be that i would just throw the charges instead of weighing them. brass prep would be the same. (anneal, resize, trim, but never uniforming primer pockets or flash holes)

    but in reality, i never do that because i usually like to change up the speed in my practice and run barricade then take a shot at a 1/2 moa target or hostage flapper
    (not that i have had any time to practice this year...)

    Has anyone had any luck with Sierra 175 TMK on Lapua 308 + 4064?
