    Love your job guys amazing…!
    I don’t have access to your ammunition so I bought RUAG and tested it with magnetospeed V3, ES 20 is an excellent ammunition here in Switzerland, the next day I did the whole recalibration process ( Redding competition dies )and went back to shoot with my Vihta N570 300grs scenar load and the result was from ES 5, the box of 10 ammunition RUAG Target P 338 lapua mag costs almost 100.- CHF 1kg (2.2lbs) N570= 100.- + box 300 scenar 90.-chf gives a total of 190.-= 173.4 loads at 89grs… but most importantly it was a pleasure to clean recalibrate weigh everything is simply a rewarding process in the end with a much lower cost and better quality.
