    Fyi I did speak to Sam. Super nice guy, but doesn't offer anything like this load. Thanks.

    RCBS Rock Chucker
    Loading Table
    Scale magnetic beam RCBS $50
    Powder Trickler
    Case Trimmer-Hand lathe
    Primer Pocket Cleaner
    Loading Block 50 rounds +/-
    Case lube
    Deburring tool, (pointed on one end and like a dart.)
    Digital Caliper for OL and case mouth.
    Bullet puller, possibly hammer type, make sure sized for 300WM.
    Powder funnel.

    Where the hell can I find these?:
    Hodgkin H1000
    Federal Gm 210M primers

    Thanks again guys.
    Does your case lube include a case lube roller pad? Nice and easy way to get the lube evenly distributed without overdoing it. Components are showing back up, keep looking.

    Are there substitute primers and powders for Federal 210M and H1000, or does that mean Im starting over with load development? I cannot seem to find Hodgdon H1000 or Federal 210m Magnum rifle primers anywhere, and for a long time.

    If you change powders you will have to start over. Substituting primers may have an effect but I never saw a difference in accuracy. The federal 210M is a standard rifle match primer. This is a strange choice since most people would use a magnum primer for such a large charge of a slow powder. But you can't argue with success. If you go to a magnum primer you will have to reduce the charge a bit or you may have higher pressures.

    Are you near a Sportsman's warehouse? They have the Federal primers on sale for $29/1000

    If you have some time in the evening swing over to my shop. I'm there 6pm-11pm Mon-Thur. Much easier to talk in person and discuss your situation. Follow the link in my sig line to my website for address and #. Text is the easiest way to get ahold of me. Its loud in my shop so I have a hard time talking on the phone.

    Thanks for the clarification on magnum vs match rifle primers. They were definitely 210M federal primers. My 210 Berger VLD load has done very well at 74 grains, seated at the lands. I would hate to mess with it. I'll check Washington SWH for those primers.

    I helped with collecting the data while we developed the load but my partner did the loading. The reloading thing is brand new. If I go ahead with it I'll be checking in with you guys for resources and info. Bear with me.

    I will also be at the group shoot on the 20th. You can stop out there for bacon and information.
