208gr 30-06 Load Development using the Satterlee Method with a twist (Part 1)

The Satterlee Load Development.

Developing a round that will reach out to your capabilities is one reloader’s goal. Here I’m trying out for the first time load development using the Scott Satterlee method. I’m also tieing in my proven Robin Round load development together with this testing. Some interesting results come forth when you pair up the right powder and bullet combo. Enjoy!

That is a big powder load, does the Caldwell rest help with the recoil ?
Do the rocks behind the target present a problem ?
I never could get really consistent powder dumps with the Lee disk measure, can you do .1 drops with it ?

I get 0.1 gr drops with mine with some powders in pistol volumes. 0.2 total variance with other loads. I don’t have the adjustable charge bar, but I do have the double disk and micro disk kit.

Have you ever tried adjusting the size die so that it doesn’t push the case back to SAMI specs and size just enough so the bolt will close ‘snugly’ on the case shoulder, centering the case in the chamber? Helping the round to present itself to the bore on a more centered alignment with the barrel? Just a thought from an obsessed OCD patient… 😉
