    Do you know of anyone that does precision high bench rest quality load development and reloading as a service for shooters that do not have time the time and equipment to do it themselves?

    Don't forget, to do load development the person would have to use your rifle to do it!! :eek:

    I load for others, but like dmickey saidn "they need your rifle". Anyway if you find some one near you, expect to pay for it. $150.00 to develop the load + 150.00 box of 50 not cheep. at those prices you could start loading your self, unless your like some of the folks I know "Lots of money and no time"

    I am one of them. I love to shoot but I am only back in the states for about 2 to 3 weeks a year so my time to shoot is extreemly limited.

    Probably cheaper, with close to the same results to use Lapua factory ammo if it's available in your chambering.

    If you have a friend that loves to reload you can always offer him or her the opportunity. I would have loved to have someone paying me to reload when I was in school. Now I fall under the same category of not being in the states but a short time each year. I enjoy reloading too much to not do it myself though so guess I will have to just shoot a little less. My friend reloads for several of his buddies and hasn't had to purchase bullets or powder for himself for a long long time because they pay him in supplies, and beer. Really really good beer. Man I miss having access to that fridge, I never knew what to expect in there.

    Do you know how to cast a chamber using cerrosafe? I put a link to it below. If you cast your chamber I could possible make some test rounds for you.

    This is a great thread (IMO). There are so many times I wish I knew someone who loads 6DASHER ammo. Even though I am retired now it seems like I have less time than when I had my business. There is always something that has to be done. And of course, being retired the honey-do list really grows longer.
    If anybody knows of such a service, please advise.
    Thanks.

    Like I said, I can load ammo custom to your rifle if I have the rifle so, do you live near the KCMO area?

    Carl Bernosky used to offer load development services:

    http://www.carlbernosky.com/

    - but there's no mention of this on his current website.

    The reloading part? Probably best done yourself. Part of the motivation behind DIY is the savings on cost over factory ammo which becomes irrelevant when it comes to "tuned" loads for a specific purpose. BR-quality is difficult where testing and end-use are separated by unknowns of time and distance.

    Unless they could work out some sort of deal, in don't know that the 1 MOA or better guarantee would make it for the OP request for "precision high bench rest quality" but you never know till you try.

    2 to 3 weeks a year? Dave, you need to have more trigger time than that!

    Hope all is well and you figure out what works and that it holds center.

    Regards,
