Im pretty happy with these results. from reading prior posts i wasnt expecting velocities this high. also tested some rounds with blue dot and 800x. im most impressed with 800x

Merry Christmas! Nice report Wavesport! I've got some 9.6 & 9.8 grains Longshot, loaded in new Starline Brass, 1.258 OAL, CCI 350's and Speer 180 TMJ's to shoot either today or tomorrow. Loaded these on my NEW XL650 Dillon (thanks to my wife!) I'll post data soon.
