Range Trip Spoiled

This week I hustled each evening doing enough honey dues so I could spend a little time in the Mans Den working up a few reloads. It was not until yesterday I remembered a family reunion today, therefore no range trip this weekend. I did however workup the following

.223 30 round (fine tuning sweet spot) using H335 and Hornady 53gr match HPBT

.243 21 rounds (still working on finding sweet spot) using H4350 and 100gr Sierra Game Kings

8x57mm 33 rounds (first time with this one) using Varget and Hornady 150gr SP

30-06 33 rounds (first time with this one) using IMR4350 and 165gr Hornady SST

Why 4 at a time, well it is hard to sit there and wait for a barrel to cool so I will alternate the 4 rifles, 3 shots each then walk out to the 100 and replace targets and once back at bench record all my data on the individual targets and start my next series. Does this sound like a good plan? Wish me luck!

sounds like a good plan to me I always bring more than 1 gun for that reason the only down side is cleaning all thoses guns after. But even that is fun

do the same thing with my handguns. We like to shoot clay pigeons set on the berm at 40-50 yards. We start out busting them up with the big bores(.460 and .44) and then will keep chippin' away at the pieces with the smaller guns(.357 and .22). When the barrels have cooled on the big guns, we set up some more and start all over again.
