Couple of results from the range

Decided to try dropping the charge just a bit on a couple, and got this:
.30-06, Lyman 115-grain spitzer sized .311, 3.0 grains Bullseye, 30 yards
 .30-06, .32 SWC sized .311, 3.0 Bullseye
Both of these quite nice, and it's kind of like shooting a hot .22.  Kind of fun to touch off a 1903A3 and get 'bang' and the rifle just shifts a bit; several times I've had people wander over and ask what I'm shooting 'cause it can't be .30-06.

Both bullets were seated to just ahead of the lube groove, and just enough crimp to make sure they couldn't move.
