Back to work tomorrow alarm is set for 4:00 am going to be s shocker been off work 10 weeks and sleeping until 7:00 on average can’t wait to get back but a little concerned about 10 hour days. And no midday nap.
2 more weeks and I will be hitting the range to sight in the 404J I can’t wait I have to slowly work up my he load once I get it sighted in so my first shots don’t kill the chronograph. I have the reloading bench set up and waiting. The rifle without sling or cartridges weighs in at 8.4 pounds maybe a little on lite side we shall soon see.
Well that is a little trouble for me when I built this or should I say I started building this rifle knowing I probably would never see a trip to Africa I decided to go with GS Customs 320gr and they sent me five bullets to load into dummies to get feeding work out. Then I ordered 50 bullets to sight in. Now they are not currently producing them in the us. That stinks because I use their bullets in 22-250 .375 Ruger and my 404J.Shawn54, what load were you thinking about working up to? The first and only load I put through my unfired 404 Jeffery was the one Von Gruff gave me for his accuracy load. That being 84 Gr. of H-4350 pushing a 400 Gr. Swift A Frame. I used that load for everything, i.e. breaking in the barrel and sighting in. When I finally put it over a Chronograph the first three shots were in order 2300 FPS (exactly what Von gruff told me to expect), 2309 followed by 2306. My rifles (both of them) shoot MOA or slightly better with this load.
