Posted January 9, 2017 by Ike Eastman in Antelope

    Ive ran a few eld x thru my 6.5 Creedmore and really liking the accuracy so far.


    Do you people realize how irritating the music you play over your voice is? A real headshaker!


    Thank you Eastman for this very nice experience. Hope that you can conduct more tests about guns and bullet in this 2017 for us to follow. Cheer!


    Hi..I like what you have done, I also want to try it once. Thank you for sharing .. <3


    I have a general reloading question for Dan related to powder and temperature. On a scale of 1-5, 1 being minimal and 5 being very sensitive, how sensitive to temperature change are the following powders? If you are uncertain, where might I find a good resource for my question? 1. IMR 4350 2. IMR 4831 3. H 4831sc 4. Reloader 22
