#1, Purchased my Walleye Blast license and permit!  ##$#@#$%  ;D

#2, Achieved my 5000 fps goal for a 6mm pill. The project name is 6mm/5K Gossamer. I'll write a complete narrative complete with the components, dimensions and special methods used to accomplish this and post it later. The short story: I slowly working my velocity up from 4800 to monitor pressure signs. At a load density of 96% I had a 5 shot string run out at 5083, 5087, 5087, 5089 and 5087. Very pleased with the results. This was purely a speed project. Next I'll mount some optics and find out how accurate(if at all) this rifle is. I only had to sign 2 "idiot waivers" to get the components for this build.  @--0--0118 I guess that makes me a double idiot.  :2)

Well if your fishing precision is anything like the reloading precision, you should be eating a lot of walleye!

Those velocity numbers are pretty incredible, that's a standard deviation of less than 2 fps out of almost 5100 - I would love to hear more details on what magic you use to get that level of consistency.  Let me guess, the "idiot waivers" were for the reamer and dies?  Just curious.

Good to hear from you DH & glad your experiment is successful so far!

Awesome on the 5000 fps. Look forward to hearing the details. Good luck walleye fishing. Feels like winter here again the last two days.

5K that's awesome. You can tell me all about it on our way out to the walleye hot spot. It should keep your teeth from chattering on the ride. See you in a couple weeks. BTW I am legal to fish in OH now also.  ##$#@#$%
