    Sounds like you found something I struggled a long time but never got. I'd always looked for a low recoil, low(ish) power round for practicing in the summer time. I don't mind shooting 300 Win Mag in the winter when I have a heavy coat on. But it's... unpleasant during the summer months. :)

    I found that I have about 1-2 grain window there where I get quarter size groups at 100 yards fully supported. I don't remember the exact charges right of the top of my head, but I know its either at or just above starting. With a sims recoil pad, they are very pleasant to shoot, but they still take a lot of powder.

    Thanks you guys really got me going with tons of good information. I will note that my Speer #14 did make mention of headspacing off the shoulder, not the belt. I was able to find some dies, for $25 surprisingly at one of my LGS, found primers and finally found the Barnes 168 grain tipped triple shock that I've been wanting to use. Still haven't been able to find any 4350 nearby. Looks like I'll just have to gut the hazmat fee if I can find it on the internet. Hopefully I'll get my loading bench set up here in a week or so and can let you guys know what I've came up with. I appreciate all the info you folks have shared.
