As we all know reloading is not really done for economic reasons but I started load development of a new light load for the my .243 that will be pulling double duty as my gopher getter and a introductory centerfire for younger/new shooters. That seems to be out of the box compared to using sticking to the 17hmr. But that is a fun little gun too.I'm just wondering if anybody else has a desire to step outside the box, instead of following the herd.
Using Hodgdon data for reduced loads with H4895 powder and 62gn Barnes Varmint Grenades with primers and brass I'll be in it for about $0.55/rnd (depending on brass life). But who can put a price on that type of fun really???
