Well, looks like I get to start paying attention to components again! I reloaded using a buddy's equipment a long time ago, but don't have the space where I am now. A friend's dad moved into the area, and it turns out he's a gun guy... We've been chatting a lot, and he's offered me the use of his set-up!! Yay! <insert happy dance here> So how are component prices these days? On the upswing or trending down right now? Where's the best place to start browsing for 10mm loading- Here, or 10-ring? Also, have any of you guys worked up a faster-burning load for .308? Specifically, I want to come up with a load that is optimized for a 16" barrel- I'd like to get the most velocity out of it I can (That is, minimize the velocity loss relative to a 18" barrel) and minimize the muzzle blast/unburned powder coming out the end of the barrel. I'm imagining it might be a little lighter load over-all, to keep the pressure down & reduce the unburned powder, but a faster powder to get pressure up a little more quickly... Any thoughts on where to start with a load like that? Thanks guys!! I'm looking forward to being able to pick some brains occasionally!
