    We have some trucker friends staying with us for a few days while their Semi is in the shop.  Adrian wanted to learn to reload, but never had the time, but their truck won’t be ready for 4 days.  So it’s a crash course in casting bullets and loading for rifles and handguns.  Their 12yo Son has a brand new Win M94 30-30 that hasn’t been shot once, so I thought we’d start with some light plinking loads and load up a small pile for them to take home to get their son started shooting and getting familiar with his rifle.

    I already had a bunch of the Ranch Dog 165s sized to .311 and lubed with Carnauba Blue, so we used those.  We seated them to engage the rifling at 2.475″ and loaded with 7 grains of Unique for 1183 fps out of my Win 94.

    I put 5 rounds across the chronograph to check velocity and shot the target below at 25 yards resting off the side of the pickup bed.  I hope they shoot as well in his son’s rifle.
