I reloaded my ammo cabinet with a healthy supply of 10mm and .38super.

I've stocked up on RL15 and a lot of 175gr SMK's, but I'll be using CCI BR-2 since I can't get my hands on Federal 210M.

Thats awesome.

I get 1 ragged hole with my Spartan Precision rifle using FGMM 175gr but I'd like to duplicate (or improve) it with a handload.

Have yet to load a single round for .308
