Visual Patience

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to get a post up here. Work has been busy and I’ve spent most of my spare time loading up test loads for the .308, .270 and .223. Now if the weather ever breaks and I can get to the range, I’ll be able to write some posts about that—and my new…
