    Tuesday was an unusual day in January. Around 65, although windy, and clear skies and sunshine for a change. Haven't seen much sunshine lately so it was very welcome. Morning wind was tolerable but afternoon it was blowing things off my bench.

    Before lunch I was working on the right combo for my new BRUX 7.5 twist Dasher. I was loading on the range and I would bump the shoulder and prime five cases at the time. Then I would take three cases and add powder and a bullet on top and fire. If any hope I would quickly load the other two cases and fire to see if the load had possibilities. I changed neck bushings and even primers. I normally shoot CCI 450 Magnums but I seemed to believe the Fed 205 Match worked a little better yesterday.
    I quit when I shot this load, three showed promise, then two confirmed. I did not repeat as it was dinner time in DIXIE.

    After 4 o'clock the wind chill called for a little more head and neck protection

    The berms are at 100, 300, 600, and 800 yards. The gaps in the
    100 yd berm are from tests with the 375 Cheytac and Junebug's
    338 Lapua Improved

    The rifle went through the Memphis Mafia-Tim Claunch Accuacy Shop
    in the fall 2017. Just now getting to this Brux.

    After lunch found me with my 700 Titanium action in a
    Richard Franklin stock. The wind was blowing things off my reloading table.
    I had a well used BRX barrel rechambered to test this action to see
    if it deserves a new barrel. I intend to put a feather weight barrel
    on this later for a carry gun, but I wanted to put a heavy varmint barrel on
    it first to test the Titanium for accuracy. It has a PT&G bolt with
    M-16 extractor :/[​IMG][/URL]

    Toward dark I made a few pics through scope with this rifle.

    How is it possible that Robertson is no longer in business?

    Tell Junebug to bring the eggs, and you’ll scramble them for him for breakfast!

    Isn't that the truth. I believe they sold molds to someone in Canada
