    while I was waiting for my Timney trigger I took my Howa trigger apart, cut 1 & 1/3rd coil off spring & it is now also a 1 lb pull and feels great. You tube Howa trigger adjustment by brethi1, very easy & all safetys work.

    Savage 10 GRS

    Well, it's his rifle but he loves the stock, very comfortable. No dislikes anymore since new barrel fixed the problems we had with factory barrel. He uses it for club matches & mid range varmint shoots. Heres a pic of 5 shot group before deciding on exploring a few 10's up & down to lower sd's.

    Gunwerks Brass.

    They told me they are making their own premium brass. Out of 100 6mm CM cases there was only 1gr difference & 75 were within half grain. All annealed. After a busy week ill get a chance to to fireform some Saturday. Might need to reduce my normal loads a tad since this is thicker, heavier...

    Shoulder won't bump but no feeding issues

    I had same issue when I started to load for my 6.5,, as soon as I replaced my Lee press with a Redding everything worked fine. Lee presses ( at least my single stage ) have no camover apparently & I couldn't get it to bump back with any die. Tried 3 kinds.

    Last seasons deer with 6.5 CM

    I took a neck shot as not to ruin meat, didn't go through & decent expansion and did lose a few tiny pieces of copper. They load easy & did well on coyotes and my doe also, dropped in their tracks.

    I do like it, just a steel shooter. Thought about taking hunting but way too heavy to lug around.
