Reloading Podcast 185 - Shoulder bumping revisited

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are pushing back that shoulder.

  1. I just listened to episode 184. I had to stop and go find it on youtube so I could watch the plunk test. That was great thank you. It really helps to see it in action. On a future episode could you walk though bumping the shoulder back? I want to start loading 30-30, 308, and 223 soon. Nathan Davis

  2. Ok, I have a question. What is the deal with bumping the shoulder back? I have RCBS dies, and I just adjust them to touching the shell holder. Should I not be doing that and adjusting for shoulder bump instead? Do some dies have an adjustable shoulder? I'm not understanding I guess, I thought you run your brass through the sizing die and it set everything the way it needed to be. Is that a neck sizing thing maybe? Cris

Title: Guys, come on!
Review: A lot of knowledge here, but Good Lord, tough to listen too. Horrible quality audio, distortion, background noise. Listening to #117 right now. The guest (Phil Massaro) is clearly trying to fill the silences, as three hosts are silent. Actually uncomfortable to listen too. Joe Rogan can do a podcast on his iPhone, in a moving car, sounds much better than this.

Reloading Podcast 182 questions again

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are answering a few more questions.

  1. I shoot long range and recently shot an F-Class match. I’m loading for a 260 Remington and I’m having a small issue with ES/SD. My $100 prochrono is showing an ES of about 20-30 fps per 10 round string, and I would like a little tighter spread.
    I am using freshly annealed Lapua brass and all shoulders bumped 2 thousandths. Necks have been turned to fit my tight neck chamber. Flash holes deburred, primer pockets uniformed, and using CCI-BR2 primers. I’m weighing charges on Dillon balance beam scale and measuring seating depth off ogive. I’m also careful not to cook rounds in the chamber longer than a few seconds. My groups at 600 show very little vertical dispersion, but there is always room for improvement.
    Your Question: What am I missing to improve my ES/SD? and/or is this a problem with using a cheap optical chronograph? I know a magnetospeed, Oehler, or lab radar will be more accurate, but wanted to hear from others before I throw more money at it. I read an article on accurate shooter comparing primers as they relate to ES, so now I am curious. How much do primers affect MV consistency?  Bryce

  2. Hello Mike
    Thank you for answering and discussing my question on your podcast. I think it will help other listeners as well.
    I did go ahead and safely fired all of the reloads at the range, it was however an interesting day. I could tell every time one of the magnum primers went off, the interesting thing was while my gun has been 100 ℅ reliable for about 1500 rounds on this day I had 5 or 6 times the spent cartridge instead of ejecting as normal it came straight back and smacked me in the forehead then the cartridge coming out of the magazine would stand straight up like a stove pipe. Very odd.
    I'm an over the road truck driver and was hoping to get home sooner so I could let you know the amount of Power Pistol I used under a 147 grain copper coated bullet. I will follow up with you that info as soon as I get home over Thanksgiving.
    Thanks again for your very informative, enjoyable and much need podcast. You bring together a great mix of knowledgeable reloaders.
    I hope you, your family and the rest of the guys have a great Thanksgiving. Mark

  3. Hi Guys,
    Listening to a podcast from a few weeks ago there was mention of powders for reduced rifle loads. Previously I had been using IMR SR4759 in my .303 British for reduced loads, however, the powder was discontinued so I was forced to find a replacement.
    The attached are what I found on the Hodgdon website for reduced loads in that search. I am currently planning to give the h4895 a try. Hopefully it works as good as the SR4759 as it was much more enjoyable to shoot my Lee Enfield, making recoil similar to that of a .223.
    All the best
    Josh
    Nova Scotia, Canada

Title: Took a class, read all the books, still educational
Review: I responsibly took a reloading class from a local range with great training classes. I read a slew of books and surfed a bunch of websites for information and insights; all to become an efficient and safe reloader. Finally I took the plunge with a turret-style and single stage press. Well, this show continues to challenge me to think about all aspects of reloading and improve my new skills. I think if you listen you all enjoy the program and get good, solid advice.

Reloading Podcast 179 - yeah, I know the you tube video is labeled 180

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are covering more questions.

  1. Turn or Ream Follow Up
    Hi Guys,
    Thanks for all the valuable information.
    To follow-up:
    I took the Winchester .308 brass and annealed and turned the necks on a Hornady Neck Turning tool. The turning mostly took off brass from about 50-60% of the neck and improved the concentricity to about .0005 to .001
    I loaded up with my previously developed load of Varget and had some fun at the range.
    The net end result was a group of .49 which is a little worse, but I blame that on the trigger puller. The big improvement came in the Standard Deviation of the load. The pre-turning SD was 7.8 fps and the post-turning dropped the SD to 3.9. A huge decrease.
    I was very happy with the results, but then came to the realization that the Winchester brass, though good, was not going to get any better. That in combination with the fact that the brass has been shot 5-6 times (did not keep accurate count) lead me to retire that brass and invest in Lapua brass.
    The initial fire forming load yielded a .60 group and SD of 4.7 fps. I expect that the future results will improve.
    By the way the Lapua brass came out of the box with a .0007 so I did not bother with turning the neck.
    Thanks for the information and I always look forward to your show. Werner

  2. copper plating -v- heavy copper plating
    Extreme bullets sells a 9mm 124 gr RN copper coated bullet and a 9mm 124gr RN HPCB (heavy plating concave base) both are listed as a .355 dia. Where, when would you use these bullets ? John L

  3. Regarding episode #173, you guys talked about how premium ammo goes through a lot more QC than does "white box" or range ammo. I know what you're saying, but I can't believe in this day of way too many lawyers that range versus premium ammo is any less scrutinized. There is just too much liability for the ammo maker. I would guess that the price difference comes from using more expensive projectiles, and also some degree of "snobbery" and packaging/marketing costs. My guess only, is that range ammo from any given company uses the same components as the premium or defensive ammo, excluding the projectile.
    Keep up the great work. BrewerBill

  4. I’m new to reloading and new to your podcast. Keep up the great work! I’m currently setting up my hornady LNL progressive to load up my first batch of 308 for my Ruger SR762. My goal is to reach 2600-2700 FPS with a 150gr Hornady PSP using Winchester brass and cci 200 primers. After much research I have chosen Alliant Power Pro 2000mr. I chose this powder for its ability to reach higher velocity at lower pressures, smooth metering and less temperature sensitivity compared to other spherical powders. I live and Oregon which has a wide temperature range however since I will be working my load up in the winter I will not know the affects of 100 degree weather on my load pressure. Once I find the proper powder charge (which will probably be on the higher end) how many grains should I back down to insure the pressure won’t peak in hot weather. I have read forums where others have said this powder has a .1-.3 FPS gain per 1 degree of temperature change. The hornady listed max is 51.2 gr. I plan to start around 45gr. Thanks! -Jerad

  5. Dear Reloading Guys,
    Love the podcast and thanks for all the great info y'all provide! In episode 166 Jeremy talked about how he performed his ladder test. If understood him correctly he said that he built one powder charge, and increased every load on the way up the ladder by .3 increments of powder. My question is by only building one load per powder charge how is gathering enough info per charge to determine if that particular charge will best his best grouping powder charge?
    Sincerely,
    Clint

Title: Favorite podcast

Review: Hi fellas, I have been listening to your podcast as well as some others and have found the reloading podcast to be my favorite by far. The relationship you all have with one another and the way that you include and engage your listeners is to be commended. I was involved in the tool and die industry for 26 yrs so I tend to relate to Jim quite well. That being said, I think all of you are top notch. I do have a question...Jim, I have heard you make reference to using a bullet trap, is that a store bought unit or a homemade setup and do you use it indoors? I live in Mid-Michigan and it gets a bit nippy in winter and I would like to shoot in my pole barn. Thanks to all for keeping me smiling while driving this semi up and down the road. Jim M

Reloading Podcast 177 - Do I need a Chronograph

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are answering the importance of a Chronograph.

  1. Jason describing his RCBS Casemaster

  2. Found your podcast 2 weeks ago and have been binge listening! Enjoy it very much.
    I started reloading 9mm about 6 months ago and 300 BLK very recently. Worked up some subsonic (9.0gr-9.4gr Win 296/200gr Cast) and supersonic (15-16gr Win 296/150gr FMJ) ladder loads and the thought of a chronograph entered my mind. I have not been out to the range in several months due to a surgery, but anticipate getting these ladder loads out to the range in the next month. Will be using my home built 300 BLK rifle with 16" barrel with 1:8 twist.
    You may have covered this subject already and I just haven't listened to it yet. If so, please let me know the podcast if you can.
    How important is a chronograph in the reloader's arsenal? Where does it fall in line with other items like a case length/headspace gauge, trimmer, primer pocket swager, etc. To me, it seems a rather important piece of data to know. We use a scale for powder measure, calipers for OAL and other measuring devices when reloading - so knowing velocities would be right up there I would imagine.
    I am looking at the MagnetoSpeed Sporter because I shoot at a busy range and setting/adjusting/moving an optical chronograph wouldn't work too well with cold/hot cycles. Obviously the optical is more flexible (rifle, handgun, bow, airsoft, etc) and with some budgeting, I may be able to pick up an optical chronograph in 5-6 months anyway if I find that I REALLY need to know pistol velocities and I can't engineer something with the MagnetoSpeed Sporter (3D printing anyone? :-) )
    Thanks for the podcast and your time!

Reloading Podcast 176 Does LSD bubble up

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are talking about crushing powder and LSD.

  1. Quick question for you guys. I have a Hornady lock and load powder thrower and am currently developing a load for . 308 using Varget. I am noticing the thrower is "crushing" the powder. The thrower measures pretty consistently and I end up trickling the rest in. Do I need to be worried or am I ok as long as I get the right load? Do you guys know of any fix for the thrower? I did lubricate the internals with graphite lube. Thanks  Joel

  2. Can you use dawn and lemishine in a ultrasonic cleaner or will it bubble too much? Jason T

Reloading Podcast 174 kabooms and cleaning

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are answering questions.

 

  1. Hi Mike, thank you for the reply. The question I had was the first part of this year I was loading 9mm middle of the road target loads, I was about 300 rounds in when I noticed I had mixed in a partial flat if small pistol magnum primers, about thirty or so in the 300 rounds. I have no idea which ones have the magnum primers. The question is how much more pressure will a magnum primers have over a regular primer? I have tried this on 38 special loads where I used some magnum primers and can not tell the difference in shooting them, if course 9mm is a high pressure load unlike the 38 special. Do you think I am safe to fire these in my Ruger LC9s pro? I was using a middle of the recipe load, not light or hot.
    Again I love the show and have learned a lot listening to it, I really appreciate all you do.
    Thank You
    Mark Evenson

  2. Equipment maintenance: What does everyone else do to keep their equipment trucking along? I've always preferred powdered graphite. Phil R from the Facebook Podcast group

Reloading Podcast 175 going progressive, not that way...

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are talking about when should you go progressive?

  1. Ok I have a question for the group. “We” tell new reloaders that they should start on a single stage press however I have yet to see an answer as to when “We” think that they are ready to make the jump to progressive press. I did not learn on a single stage I was lucky to have a friend that had a 650 and that is what I learned on and that is what I bought as my press. I am only loading 45 and 9mm. I do see the advantage of a single stage or a Redding T-7 style press with bottle neck rounds. So having no real world experience with a single stage I am wondering if there is a moment when a single stage reloader has that moment of let's go to a progressive
    I will say that with a progressive press that you must remain focused at all times because of all the operation that are going on at the same time
    This might also make for a good Show topic
    Please give me you thought on this Eric Strong

  2. I have a Rem 223 loading question. I have some 68gr FMJ-BT bullets that I want to try loading. These have no cannelure (versus my 55gr bullets that did have a cannelure). Should I crimp, or not crimp? I have access to both a Lee Factory Crimp Die and a Redding Taper Crimp Die. These rounds are for use in my AR-15. Asking since I'm fairly new to rifle cartridge reloading. Thanks Bill Murray

  3. I'm pulling the bullets from some 1952-53 dated Kynoch belted .30-06 ammunition. (corrosive primers)
    The powder looks like 4895. Does anyone have any information of the powder used in these rounds?
    I'd like to re-use it if possible B.Brock

Reloading Podcast 173 spinning and popping

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are answering some questions.

  1. Hey guys.  New to reloading, made a new guy mistake.  Had a Dillon 550 for years, but just lacked the confidence to start.  Listening to the podcast got me fired up and I have been reloading 9mm for weeks now.  I got my recipe put together and have been reloading quite a few rounds.  Test shot a few hundred rounds with no issue.  I made an adjustment to my belling and the crimping stage, everything seemed to be going well, everything fit the gauge, magazine and cycled thru my G17.  But then I noticed the bullet spins inside the case, it is snug enough to not fall out but is not correct.  I made the correction to the press and following  rounds all tested good.  The question is:  Can I shoot these over crimped rounds, I just do not want to waste?  Otherwise, suggestions of pulling apart and starting over.
    Suggestions?
    thank you Guys.  love the show.
    Mike K

  2. Hey Mike on the point of head separation this might make a good podcast subject on inspecting brass.

Reloading Podcast 172 - Turn or Ream

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are talking reaming vs turning.

  1. Message: I got into long range shooting about 2 years ago and have been reloading on and off for a couple of decades (mostly straight wall pistol). I am reloading for .308 Winchester and for 6.5 Creedmoor. I have been using Winchester brass in the .308 and had very good results (groups generally around .40 inch at 100 yards / .95 inch at 200 yards). I am quite happy with this result and have reached out to 1200 yards with the .308 with no problem. I have yet to take the 6.5 Creedmoor out to distance, but hoping to in the next few weeks.
    I am reloading over a Redding T7 with Competition Bushing Dies and have checked concentricity, which generally runs about 0.001 to 0.002 inch.
    My question is will Neck Turning or Reaming have a significant impact on my precision?
    And, is it better to Neck Turn or Neck Ream?
    Neck Turning equipment is readily available and Neck Reaming equipment is far more expensive and harder to find.
    Thanks for any incite you may be able to provide.  Werner

  2. I appreciate the show.  I have 2 questions.
    A.  I have will be getting 700 free xtp bullets from Hornady for my 10mm through their promotions where you buy a die and get 100 bullets or buy a larger piece of equipment--in my case the Lock and Load Power Case Prep Center--and get 500 free bullets.  Most of this will be loaded as high power range ammo.  My question is, I don't want to waste a lot of it in load development, so how close to max can I safely start loading.  Like I said before, I'm not looking for extreme accuracy, just big boomer fun at the range.

    B. I have a 50 Beowulf.  On Alexander Arms website, they list load data for some of the powerbelt muzzleloader bullets to be loaded in the 50 Beowulf cases.  Their data is for the heavy grain powerbelt bullets.  I just came across a major deal on 270 gr powerbelt polymer tip bullets.  Alexander Arms has no data for this lighter bullet.  I even called them to see if they had any suggestions.  So, what I'm wondering is, can I take load data from a similar weight bullet of a different brand and use it as a starting point for load development.  Obviously, I'd start low and go up until I saw pressure signs.
    Thanks and God Bless!
    Joseph

Reloading Podcast 171 - loading 223 vs 556

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are talking .223 vs 5.56mm.

  1. Gander mountain by me had a huge clearance sale on firearms yesterday and I couldn't pass on a savage model 25 .223.
    After this impulsive buy... I am left wondering if I can use my 5.56 NATO brass and load it to 223 Remington?
    I've searched the group and couldn't come up with an answer. Keith (podcast group post)

  2. I've begun developing a load for my  Browning 1885 Low Wall in .223 Remington using the Hornady 55 grain spire point bullet. I have quite a bit of reloading experience but ran into a mystery that has me confused. I use the Hornady (Stony Point) Cartridge Overall Length Gauge to determine an optimum cartridge overall length with the bullet seated to be just off the rifling. As you know, this gauge uses the ogive of the bullet which is more accurate than measuring the cartridge base to tip. After determining the cartridge length I wanted I carefully adjusted my bullet seating die. Then, I seated the next bullet and found it off by .005 or so. I seated another, and another, and another. None of them were the same cartridge OAL. Varying from my desired length by none to as much as .006 - always shorter; none were ever over .001 longer than I wanted.
    This was all done with a Lee bullet seater.  OK, I thought, Lee isn't the most precise thing out there so I get a bullet seater from a Hornady Custom Die set.  Essentially the same thing happened all over again.
    My question - what could be causing this. One would assume that once the die is set it's going to produce the same results repeatedly. Could the bullet ogive or jacket thickness be that different?  I wouldn't think the die would have that much play in it. (BTW this was done with a Forster press if that matters to your answer).
    The bullets used were Hornady 55 grain spire points bought in bulk (1000) bullets. I don't remember where I got them as I had then for a while. I've wondered if the bullets were perhaps 2nd quality and sold in bulk for that reason (thought I doubt that).
    Now I doubt my rifle knows the difference .005 in COAL would make. I realize it's a falling block so is probably never going to produce results like a benchrest bolt action but I did want the best it could do. I'm a real fan of the 1885 action. The real mystery here is why wouldn't the bullet seating depth and COAL as measured with the Hornady Cartridge Overall Length Gauge be essentially the same every time.  Ron

  3. Hey guys. Not reloading related but i Decided to take my 22lr (rem 597) outta the trunk to clean it. Apparently sand from the beach does get everywhere. Upper receiver, lower, barrel, stock. Anyone have any tips for getting all the sand out . Air can ? And clean or something something else Kenneth

Reloading Podcast 170 - Farewell to Jake

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are answering questions and saying goodbye to Jake Challand.

  1. Is it important to have the most up to date reloading manuals, and if so, why?
    Love the show,
    Zachary D

  2. There are some videos out there about trimming down 5.56 brass and making 7.62x25. I know it is a lot of work and I don't mind that, I'm kind of a tinkerer anyway. My question is this, Is it safe and or practical. Once you trim a couple you should be able to use those over several times. I think I heard a while back on your show about high pressure, can you explain that? Is there anything I can do to reduce the pressure? Not looking for hot loads.
    Thanks
    Robin

  3. Guys, Love the show!  I know more episodes are available on your website, but why aren't they on iTunes?
    Anyway, I'm getting into reloading and am looking into purchasing a trimmer.  I like the Trim-it 2 because of the three way cutter.  However, as I was reading reviews, someone mentioned that this trims off the shoulder length and not the OAL.  Although that seems obvious, I'm now curious when you should trim for OAL and when you should trim based on the shoulder.
    Looking forward to the next show,
    Zachary

Reloading Podcast 169 - Underboom

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are answering more questions.

  1. Hey Jim listen to the podcast and am thinking of reloading currently have a savage ar 15 msr and am debating weather or not to go with ruger precision 308 bolt action or the juggernaut  ar 308 while I'm fine buying .223 ammo around 33 cents a round I will not be buying 308, i was looking at the Lee turret press I would use it as a single stage don't want to be taking dies on and off. Will make about a 1000 rounds of 308 a month currently go through 2000 rounds of .223. Thanks and I enjoy the podcast. Oh I will be using the 308 for hunting and hitting metal just getting into some long range so this is new to me. Kyle

  2. I came across a post with a picture of the top half of a revolver blown off. In the comment section people were speculating what could have caused this to happen. Some of the comments mentioned the possibility of an undercharged case causing detonation or an explosion to occur. This was the first time I had heard of this. Is it possible for a very undercharged load to explode, and if so, why?
    Love the show,
    Zachary

  3. Hello Reloading Podcast,
    I am listening to episode 164 and Jim is talking about separating wheel weights. I use a sharpened pair of dike pliers and bite all that I have a question on. Regarding the zinc, it's a pain but if you look at the weights the zinc ones say ZN on them. Happy casting. David

  4. Will a RCBS #26 pilot fit in a Hornady case trimmer and be able to be used for trimming 6.5 Creedmoor? (text to Google voice #)

  5. What is the greatest variation a guy should get in case overall length on his dies while seating the bullets? Joe

  6. I started to reload some .270 rounds about a years ago. I realized after priming 50 rounds that I didn't have the projectiles on hand. So I let them sit and kind of forgot about them. My question is, are the primers still viable, or do I need to put new primers in them? If I need to replace the primers can I use the decapping die? Richard.

Reloading Podcast 168 - is Plus P worth it

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are answering questions about handgun rounds.

 

  1. I've been enjoying your podcast and have a question. I have been reloading for years, but just started incorporation the use of a chrono this last weekend. I worked up a ladder test of 9mm 124gr FMJ bullets and found with the use of the chrono that I achieve my tightest groups with lowest the standard divination ratings at +P pressures around 1200 FPS out of a 5" barrel. Where do you strike a balance between accuracy and consistency without beating up my guns with +P pressures?
    Thanks,
    Rick

  2. Sirs
    I’m a newbie to reloading and, although I have had a Lee kit for several years, have not yet got my first batch of ammo loaded. My excuses being partly financial and partly family related time constraints; I have four young children. Anyway, I’ve spent the time saving up my pocket money to get bits I need as and when I have the money and, learning. My primary source of education has been your podcast which is excellent; I went back and downloaded all of them, but skipped a few here and there where I felt the subjects were beyond my current needs. I also have one of the A-Z of reloading books and some data. I decided my first caliber would be 10mm auto since I understand that straight walled pistol is easier to start and I figured the production ammo for that is more expensive than for 9mm.
    So, my question is how to find a starting recipie for the powder and bullet. I shot some factory ammo, saved and cleaned the cases, deprimed, resized, and re-primed. I currently have 50 shiny brass cases with fresh primers sitting upside-down in a loading block (I don’t want any junk falling in there while I procrastinate). Since I had no powder nor bullets, I decided to look over various recipes in the data to find common powders and bullets. I had heard you guys talk about Unique a lot, saw that was common in the data, and found a good deal locally. Now, I realize that there are a ton of well known bullet brands for which there is tested, trustworthy data but, being a cheapskate, wanted to go for a less well-known brand like Acme, or Berry’s for example. However, none of these smaller brands seem to be included in the data so, wanted to err on the safe side, I’m buying nothing. I was told by one person that I only really need to worry about the bullet weight and that I could get away with data for my powder and an equivalent bullet. However, in looking through various data sources, I see that there is even variance between different bullets from different manufacture where the weight and powder remain consistent.
    I just want a plan that will keep me safe without spending more than it would cost me to buy factory ammo in the first place and any guidance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks, George

  3. Hi guys
    I wrote to you a few weeks ago about my primers getting stuck on my decapper and staying in the case.  i did what you suggested with the decapper pin in a drill and spinning it on a stone.  that made the world of difference.   i may get the odd one stick but over all loading is much more easier.
    Just a note it happened a lot more with new once fired cases especially speer and federal.  when i load ones that i have loaded and shot and loaded a gain i have no issues.  must be the hand loaded primers are not in as tight.  
    I also have been powder coating my cast handgun bullets with great success.
    Thanks a gain and keep up the great podcast.
    Charlie

Reloading Podcast 166 - a close shave

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are answering questions about brass shavings and making f class loads.

  1. Bullet: Bayou Hightek 9mm 147 grain Flat Point
    Problem: in order to seat the bullet and not scrape off some of the coating I have to use an extreme Bell. I noticed that the feed ramp to my bullet tray was covered with brass shavings. when shooting at the range, the table I shoot from was covered in brass shavings. my Brother in law told me that the large bell is the source of the Brass shavings. I've tried for hours to find a bell large enough to not scrape off the coating but not throw Brass shavings all over the place but I've had no luck. I ordered a sample pack of Blue Bullets and they load like a champ. Unfortunately, my Glock 34 likes the Bayou Bullets better. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
    Bayou Bullets measure .356
    Blue Bullets measure .355     Troy

  2. Evening,
    I've been reloading 9mm for a year and am far from an expert. I've just completed my first AR in 5.56 and have a custom bolt gun that my son has created for me in 3.08. I am beginning to shoot them and want to be as accurate as possible. I have a 650 Dillon for the 9 and am thinking of purchasing a Forester Co-axial with their dies for the 5.56 and 3.08. Sound about right to you for making accurate loads? I would like to shoot F class and bang steel the them both.
    Thanks and Continued Blessings
    David

  3. Took the plunge and bought the lee pro 1000 for 223. Came with the auto drum, I was excited. I can stay 24.1-24.3 with AR-Comp. is there a better powder? Problem is when the full case stops in position, the detent ball makes the case jiggle and I lose 2-3 pieces of powder. I can lightly touch the case and it won't spill. Happy with the press. Just a small challenge. Had it setup, adjusted and running with an hour.  Steve

    1. I have been using 748 for years but now also like CFE both meters great behind a 69 or 55 I only shoot my 77gr out of a 1-7 twist because that is what Sierra bullet recommend. Kenneth

Review: Literally, anything you want/need to know about reloading equipment, components, and processes is covered. With a few years worth in archives, I've learned more in the last few weeks worth of podcasts than any other source! Keep em coming fellas! It's nice, here in California, to hear about people with the freedoms to load, shoot and repeat!!!

Reloading Podcast 165 - rattle can dreams

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  

Tonight the guys are revisiting painting bullets and other topics.

  1. If I wanted to store brass for several years before loading how is the best way to store it? (e.g. with or without the primer, cleaned or dirty, etc.) Brian

  2. In recent episodes there has been some talk about primers getting pulled back into the case during the resizing process. I think it was Jason that said Federal cases did it a lot. I have found that to be true as well as blazer cases. They both seem to share a similar trait that I've noticed.  It appears that during the resizing process, the rim appears to be getting pushed further down than the primer pocket creating a slightly concave center to the brass. I suspect this may be due to soft brass. I have attached a couple of pictures for you to look at and see if you can see what I mean.  Any further insight would be appreciated.
    Kenny

  3. I have a couple of random questions and thoughts.
    I know Jim is up to his arse in alligators with the move, but in a recent podcast he mentioned some wooden crates that he makes. When Jim gets some time, could he elaborate on their construction?
    I'm always looking for innovative storage solutions.
    Jim and Jason also mentioned one of the podcasts Jason listens to, Geeks Gadgets and Guns. Could you guys discuss, (or put in show notes), your favorite podcasts? I personally am all over the map with podcasts...2A stuff, comedy, critical thinking, shooting, beer brewing, off roading and of course, the bestest podcast, the Reloading Podcast. The FRN sure has some excellent content.
    Thanks
    BrewerBill

  4. I've heard you talk recently a few times about painted bullets. What episode can I listen to to learn more? Other resources. How and why do you paint bullets. Does it eliminate the need for lube? Will it work in both rifles and handguns?






 

Reviews:

Hey guys. I just found your podcast not too long ago and I'm really enjoying it! I've been reloading for around 40 years and it is truly exciting to listen to your conversations on the podcast about things that are so familiar to me. I had no idea such a podcast existed!

I've gone back and listened to many older episodes in order to catch up a bit.  I may be an old dog (not as old as Jim!) but I've already picked up some ideas and pointers from you guys. I really enjoy the interviews with industry leaders such as Hodgdon and Dillon.
Keep it up. I look forward to each podcast!
