    Unless someone is already using that or is desperate for components you may be better off just shooting it.
    If I had my rifle dialled in for a particular load using a different weight bullet it's a lot of faffing about for 14 rounds to rezero, fire what's left after that and then reset your scope. Unless of course you just like making noise.

    I just had 120 loads dropped off with another 250 on the way so they are surplus to requirement. Was thinking its more for someone that wanted to try a different load to see if its worht buying more. I had to buy 4 different boxes of factory ammo to test only to find out my Kimber didn't shoot well with any of them. Saves the faff of the police order forms buying from Belmont.
