See Michael, those new fangled jacketed bullets work too. But most of us already knew that. So what's the next project?

I'm about ready to test my new eyes at a match. I am not expecting anything super but will give it a shot to see for myself. Time keeps on marching by.

How are Dianna and your dad doing? Tell them I asked and wish them well.

Everyone is well Frankl and good luck on your match.

As far as projects, it is back to my 35-30 to finish up the load work.

Wow! I’m very impressed with your work. What about a Savage 340 in 30-30 Ackley? Lots of those old savage around

The 340 and Rem 788 are both fine candidates for the Ackley Improved in that they feed from a magazine stack. You could use pointy bullets.
