Not - that's pretty impressive to hit the target at a mile, even if the slug didn't have enough steam left to penetrate plywood.  Congratulations - you've done a lot with that one box of ammo!
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

    Mad   I bought 100 rounds of factory Hornady match ammo last year. I have only bought about 12 boxes of rifle ammo in my life. The brass was really hard to get for the 6mm Creedmoor so I bought factory ammo for less then I could of bought the components to reload it. The Hornady match ammo is extremely accurate, I don't know if my handloads will be as good.

    My handloads seem to be good. The Hornady ELD match 108 gr bullets shot a little better then the 107 gr Nosler Custom competition bullet. I fired 2 rounds of each at 600 yards and measured center to center. Hornadys were 3.25 inches and the Noslers were 3.75 inches apart. That's as good as I can shoot and next time the Noslers might shoot better. I have about 70 of the Hornadys left and then I have 240 of the Noslers to shoot.    I think I will stick with the Reloader 17 for a while too.

BO  is RL 17 high priced in your area?  They want $39 a pound here in the local hardware store.  I'm going to check prices in the area before buying any more.
