Reloading Podcast 155 - questions

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

Tonight the guys are covering more questions.

  1. Ryan voicemail

    1. Accurate Molds

  2. hey guys love the podcast and like always really good information for the newbies like me! i have been on the reloading bench for about 6 to 9 months using a combination of hornady classic single stage press, rcbs, hornady and Lee dies,  I started with 223 Rem and 5.56 mainly for varmint hunting coyotes and such, i purchased the deluxe Lee set with the collet for my 6.5 Creedmoor m10 savage! i shot factory ammo to sighting in my scope and to save the brass for reloading, i have a two part question first after i setup my sizing and decapping die i've notice after i lube the cases still hard to run the case through the sizing die, 8 can still run it but i have to put a lot of lube i'm  using the Lyman lube and lube pad for this process is this normal for brand new dies? , also the fired  primers are falling away from the press not into the catch bin how is there a way to fix this? thanks guys for all the info you all put out there and looking forward to the next podcast!!!!
    sincerely
    Felix

  3. I’ve been getting  caught up on podcasts and I just listened to #146 Bullets and Boolits
    During this podcast you were discussing not needing to lube boolits that have powder coating.
    I do not remember the number but I remember a podcast (maybe about a year ago) that Jeremy was talking about painting his cast rifle boolits. My question is can you paint or powder coat interchangeably, or is the painting just to reduce leading and does not eliminate the lube process?

    Thank you for your time and the podcast, Chris

Two reloading tips tumbling pins and double charges

To prevent double charges on a single stage, turn the shell upside down right before your charge.

I use compressed air to blow water and remaining pins out of pin tumbled hulls, it works.

 

Your show is outstanding, I listen every week.

Thanks Bud

 

Headspace

In the primer episode there was a fairly extensive discussion on getting a precise shoulder bump on rifle brass. After listening to the first interview with Robin Sharpless, I invested in a set of Redding competition dies and the competition shell holders. With the shell holders you can take all the guesswork out of adjusting the die by screwing in and out. You simply set the die for a full cam-over, measure, and select the shell holder that corresponds to the additional length you need. This has saved me a ton of time when full length sizing and is extremely repeatable.

 

Thanks for keeping up with the podcast and the providing the wealth of information on the show each week

Mike

Reloading Podcast 154 - Gary from Dillon Precision

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

Tonight the guys are talking with Gary from Dillon Precision.

  1. company history,

  2. the different presses and year of release, and then a bit about each major piece of equipment, (presses, case prep, etc.) that is in the lineup.

  3. And maybe some of the changes that have prompted the minor name changes on a couple of the presses.  

  4. Also how many different calibers you make dies for and

  5. If you offer custom services at all.  

  6. Other Dillon products? Mini guns?

  7. Booth #

  8. Hey guys,
    I am having an issue when I try to deprime my cases where the bottom portion of the primer cup opens up like a can of beans and leaves the sides stuck in the case.  This happened a couple of times out of thousands of 9mm so I didn't take much note of it, but when depriming my wife's 38 special cowboy loads it occurred approximately 1 out of every 10.  I had never taken note of it before and was wondering if you knew what was causing this and how I may be able to avoid it in the future.

    I attached a photo for reference.   


    I am using a Hornady LNL AP progressive press with a Lee Universal Decapping Die.

    Thanks for the great show,
    Mike (New Shooter Canada)

Reloading Podcast 153 - Powder questions from Reloading, reloaded

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

Tonight the guys are answering a couple follow up questions about powder.

  1. Hey guys!  Love the show.  Found your podcast randomly and have been burning through episodes while I reload and do case prep. I've noticed a topic with new reloaders you may want to address on an upcoming show.  The topic:  Powder measurement facts and fiction.  On numerous reloading groups on FB and other reloading forums I see new reloaders spinning their wheels because they're using a volumetric measurement device and then weighing their charges and getting conflicting and inconsistent data.  I saw a guy on a page who went to the extent of using a powder thrower then would use his beam scale to verify his charge, then would verify that charge with a reloading brand digital scale, and would then verify that scale with another digital scale.  Wow, that must take a while to load ammo!

    Some talking points I thought of:
    1. Difference between volumetric measurement and weight measurement(powder density)
    2. What applications should you use a digital scale to weigh your powder charges to .01 or .001 of a grain
    3.  What powders measure accurately in volumetric measurement devices(pistol and rifle powder)  Some powders to be wary of due to inconsistent powder throws (powder bridging)
    4. Acceptable charge variance due to volumetric measurement for different shooting applications (plinking, pistol competition, rifle competition, hunting)
    5. Powder baffles fact or fiction
    6. How often should you verify a volumetric powder measuring device to ensure it is throwing an accurate charge during a reloading session.
    7. Facts and Myths of removing static charge from powder hoppers to get consistent throws. (Dryer sheet - Electrically grounding my press).

    Thanks again for the great show you guys are doing great work!  I really enjoy the interviews with people within the reloading industry!  Any chance of getting anyone from Lee Precision on?  I heard a rumor they may be releasing a 4 station progressive press soon, may be game changer!

Reviews:

hi guys, love the show......

A question..... For various reasons, due to injury, rheumatics, etc, I have reloading problem.... Any recommendations for a way to automate a 'pull' on a single/turret press....

(I know you can automate bulk/progressive presses, but I want the accuracy of single/turret with assistance on the pull..... "pie in the sky"?)

 

Tried a few, botched a few, not found an answer yet.....

 

Ramble on guys,

Victor

Reloading Podcast 148 - The Canuck is on glue??

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio network.  Tonight the guys are catching up on emails

  1. Hey Gents - yer Canuck was talking about the reason for fire forming cases on his other Podcast. He indicated that one of the reasons to do this was to eliminate the energy lost to expanding the case to chamber.
    Now I don't call myself no expert but I ain't never heered o'that being any kind of reason to fire form. I cannot image how there can be any "energy" is lost to case expansion in a full length sized case compared to a fire formed neck sized case.  Bullets are accelerated down the barrel via the pressure created when propellant powder burns and generates gas. A larger case volume would technically result in less pressure as there is more room for the gas to expand, however when fired both the previously fire formed case and the full length sized case expand to the walls of the cartridge chamber, thus their size and internal volumes will be the same.
    My understanding from all the reading I have ever done (I've been at this long enough that I had to read this stuff in books and magazines not just google up some youtube videos) the reasons for fire forming is tighter more concentric fit in the chamber resulting ultimately in greater accuracy.
    Neck sizing then preserves this fire formed shape, realizing the increased accuracy and reduces the working of the brass, making it last longer.
    I have in the past also used fire formed brass for rimmed cases to get them to headspace off the shoulder instead of the rim, largely to reduce the working of the brass and increase case life. It's particularly handy with say a 303 Brit where rifles can develop headspace that is a tad on the generous side.
    My belief is that the Canuck is on glue. Can you confirm?
    Cheers, Bryan

    1. Here's my thoughts on it, it's not due to trying to mitigate energy loss, it's for trying to make each case consistent in volume. Which means you'll get more consistent rounds.
      ACTUALLY, if you Fire form then just Neck size, you gain capacity and lose velocity. Hence the reason I went to using a Redding Body Die. I get consistency and still able to hold on to MV

  2. Good day,
    I really enjoyed the podcast with Chris Hodgdon. What a great time. It is nice to hear from a powder manufacturer, the information was just fantastic.
    Great podcast as usual. I am enjoying the shows, and always pick up an idea or two. Thanks, Mike

  3. Knockdown power
    I've been fascinated with big bores for a long time, and spent a lot of thought on what these larger mass bullets offer. One pet peeve is absolute idiots guffawing about how mass and kinetic energy are interchangeable, and how their 9mm is the equivalent of a .50 BMG. This is how I view the matter:
    The power we are discussing isn't a myth, it's just misnamed. It isn't sufficient to knock you down, but it is plenty adequate to make you miss me. Why don't you stand straight up while firing a gun with recoil? Because that gun will rock you back on your heels and spoil your follow up shots. This force, felt by YOU in the form of recoil, is felt by your ENEMY (equal and opposite reaction) when you shoot him. The fortunate difference is your enemy cannot anticipate that force PUNCHING him in the wound you just created (we'll ignore the physiological and psychological advantages of this for now) and it will always spoil his follow-up shots. So now you know that people shooting guns with no recoil, the guys who guffaw at your heavier bullets and prattle on about rate of fire, mag capacity, and kinetic energy, are ignorant morons, just simple minded parrots congratulating themselves for repeating what they are told.
    It's not "Knock-Down Power" it's "Can't Touch This Power." I guess from a reloader standpoint, you select the best weapon for the job, because that is what a bullet is, a weapon, just like an arrow, a sword, or a war hammer. I just happen to think the war hammer has some unique advantages beyond amputating hands or feet, turning extremities inside out, liquefying bone, or making nice crimson rain clouds, it can make someone shooting at you miss. How much is too much is a secondary argument.
    - Smiddywesson

  4. Just listened to episode #146 and thought of something that might help you out. My local reloading supply shop gets bullets in bulk and uses a digital scale and counts them by weight instead of counting out each one. Might be worth a try. I know they won't all have the same weight but should get you close to the count you want faster. Maybe weigh a box and get the average weight per bullet then multiply by the count you need.
    Thanks for another great episode!
    Matt

Review: For the last 20 years or so I have been plugging away on my Hornady single stage doing multiple steps and die changes to get completed cartridges. No thanks to you suckers I have recently purchased a Dillon 650xl. You have cost a ton of money but it does seem to save me time. So I don't know whether to thank you or curse your names. Anyway great show keep it up great show.

Reloading Podcast 147 - primers don't go nuclear

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

Tonight the guys are talking primers.

  1. Does it really matter?

  2. Why different types?

  3. Why does it fall out after seating?

  4. Do I have to seat on the press?

  5. What about shotshells?






 

Reviews:

The hollow base pistol bullet acts a bit like a skirt on an air rifle pellet in that it creates drag and causes the bullet to stabilise better. ie drag at the back of a bullet pulls the back backwards and the dense front wants to go forwards.

Longer bullets (rifle bullets) are less stable which is why they need to be spun faster. As a bullet flies through the air is pressing back at a huge pressure. This makes the bullet try to tumble. Spinning the bullet makes it spin like a top and that gives it stability.

If you want, you can think of trying to balance a rod on a desk. The longer the rod, the less stable it is. You can give that rod stability by spinning it (like how spinning a top gives stability). The longer the bullet, the faster you need to spin the bullet to get that top spinning effect.

A 150gn bullet coming out of a 308 Win is spinning at over 200,000 rpm.


Regards, Charles

Reviews:

Podcast 143 was the best episode in a long time IMHO. Lots of good information. In a future episode can you spend some of the show on copper plated pistol bullets like Barry's and Xtreme? The pros and cons?

Thanks and keep up the great work.

Hopefully, this is the proper place to leave feedback on The Reloading Podcast. I listen to your show while commuting to/from Work. I have been reloading as long as Jim, and I really appreciate his knowledge and desire to be correct. I enjoy your show a lot. The information provided has always been correct or corrected quickly. I'm really glad it is a family friendly show. I have listen to other podcasts on other subjects just to turn them off due to the unnecessary cursing. I like that each contributor seems to be genuine friends and care about giving new reloaders clear and correct information. I really enjoy the interviews with industry leaders such as Robin Sharpless. The only complaint I have is the audio quality on some episodes is so bad I have to skip the episode. Issues such as echoes, volume between hosts, clarity, and your intro playing at the same time as hosts are talking. I enjoy your show very much and look forward to the next episode. Keep up the good work.

Reloading Podcast 145 - Powder with Chris Hodgdon

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

Tonight the guys are talking powder with Chris Hodgdon of Hodgdon Powders.

 

  1. What is the best powder to use in a .223 for a 55 gr with a 1 in 12 twist barrel? Cfe223, h335, 748, for accuracy use benchmark, or enduron 4166

  2. How come no 129gr data for 6.5 Grendel or 140gr? Can we expect any?

  3. Can you discuss powder types and temp sensitivity.

  4. Is H4350 being replaced? No just high demand 6.5 creedmoor  IMR Enduron 4451 as a substitute

  5. What is a good replacement for IMR 4064? Varget, IMR Enduron 4166.

  6. Powders & MSDS
    Message: Since you've been talking about IMR/Hodgdon and recently Varget, I wanted to ask this question. Is it possible to get an accurate MSDS that doesn't generalize the ingredients of 10 different powders in that company's line of products?

     

  7. What are some signs to look for if you suspect your powder has gone bad?

    • Rust colored dust upon opening,  dump on white paper look for rust, powder becomes warm to the touch.

Title: Great podcast
Review: I have been a listener for some time now and I am very impressed with this podcast. I am especially would like to mention that Jim does a great job of explaining the various terms as they arise. I understand most of them, but a newer reloader would find the podcast not as informative if they are not explained. All of the hosts add a little bit to each episode, which keeps one host from hogging the airwaves. Keep up the great show

Review: These guys are incredibly knowledgeable, and run an excellent show. They go out of their way to cater to new reloaders, and are very helpful. I look forward to each new episode, and frequently go back and listen to the older ones to improve my techniques. If they don't answer a submitted question during the show, they will answer it on their Facebook page, and quickly. Keep it up, guys, you are THE reloading Gurus!

Title: The best reloading podcast out there...
Review: But, then again, I haven't found another one... yet... Just kidding! ;-) I'm a long time listener and a recent"patreon"so I may be bias butt can't wait for the shows to come out every week. Mike, Jim, Jason, Jeremy and Trevor have such a wealth of knowledge to help the new or seasoned reloader learn something new. I learn something new every week. The show's only problem is that Jim talks to much and is old as dirt... Keep up the good work!!

Reloading Podcast 144 - Brass prep doesn't suck as much

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

Tonight the guys are talking about brass and brass prep.

  1. What is Brass

  2. I'm a new listener and new to reloading. I have a couple question regarding brass:
    1. Do you deprime then tumble or tumble then deprime,
    2. Do you sort your brass by times fired (if so how) or do you just fire it and use the inspection process to eliminate bad pieces,
    3. I have around 1,000 pieces of lake city brass (5.56) and have heard that military brass needs to be reloaded using a different process. Is this true?  If so how?
    I really enjoy you show and am working my way through all the podcasts. Keep up the great work.
    Thanks,
    Sgt. Maj. M Hawkins (Ret)

  3. Cleaning topics

  4. Why is brass prep necessary?

Reloading Podcast 143 - What equipment do I need

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

Tonight the guys are discussing equipment needs with guest host Ben.

  1. Single vs Turret vs Progressive

  2. Brand

  3. Used vs new

  4. What else

  5. Extra tools

  6. Subject: Fire Forming & Maximum chamber pressures from Robert
    I am new to reloading and have been enjoying your podcast since I found it 2 months ago.
    I was trying to make sense of some things I’ve heard about fire forming brass.
    On an earlier podcast it was mentioned: Load the cartridge (I assumed with a reduced load) and seal it with a plug “COW?" (in place of the projectile), forgot what material was mentioned on the podcast.  Then fire your rounds to fire form them.
    It seemed to me that using a plug in place of a heavier projectile will not create the maximum SAAMI chamber pressures, so . . . the article I reference below suggests the case-head may not be “completely” driven back against the bolt face, and you still might have a “slight” amount of excess head space. http://gunsmagazine.com/fireforming-brass/

  7. This is the email question Mike was referring to, but actually it was a facebook post from Craig.           Hey guys looking into. reloading and just listened to your latest podcast about reloading for the beginner. I was looking at one of the single stage machines but one of the guys on your podcast mentioned the Dillon 650. I watched some videos on that last night and it looks awesome. I'm getting into competition shooting and need to turn out bullets quickly. However I have never reloaded. what do you recommend? Thanks guys I loved the podcast!

Reloading Podcast 140 - full or neck size

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

Tonight the guys are answering some more questions.

  1. To start off with I had an armalite .223 wylde chamber and I lost it in a divorce it would produce 3/8" groups at 100 . I now have a Smith & Wesson M and P 15T marked 5.56 NATO.
    I am very unhappy with the grouping and I know it's not a Precision gun but I'm trying to make it that. Here's my question
    Should I be resizing my brass every time I shoot or should I just resize the neck ?
    Also I've noticed I'm getting some blowback on the outside of the neck like carbon on the casings and yes my case length is 1.760  Brian

  2. I was listening to the "Should I Sort" podcast today and you guys made an interesting comment about powder charge weights...grains vs grams.
    After Trevor piqued my interest in Cam-Pro projectiles, I went to their web site, and while snooping around I came across a link to some reloading data. Sure enough, it was listed in both grains and grams. I've never seen grams, (metric), used as a powder charge unit of measure, but it's never been on my radar either. Alas, the Cam Pro pills don't seem to be available in the States...oh well.
    On the subject of sorting .222/5.56 brass I've given up segregating Lake City brass by years. Waaayyyy too much hassle for brass that is consistent enough for my purposes of reloading range ammo. I used to sort by year but that was overkill in my humble opinion. As in beer brewing, one can become "geeked-out" over very small details. I know, I know, the devil's in the details, but when reloading plinking or range ammo, a tenth of a grain powder or a thousandth of case or COL length is chasing minimal return investment of time. Don't get me wrong. Max is max, period. Same with minimum size and powder charge.
    For perspective, a human hair is between .002" and .006", a business card is about, (or aboot for Trevor), .010", and a credit card is about .030" thick. I do however sort my brass, across all calibers, by headstamp for ease of trimming, sizing, and bullet seating. That's the big payoff for me in time. Keep in mind, I'm a devoted hobbyist, not a competitor or sniper. YMMV.
    Keep up the great, work. Your content and production are improving all the time.
    BrewerBill

  3. Mike and gang. I tried sending an email but having server problems.  I wanted to wish you guys a very Merry Christmas.  I appreciate every one of you as you have the perfect mix of personality and expertise.  Thanks for the gift of knowledge and entertainment that you share with the reloading community.  And Jeremy,  me being from Alaska, I think all of you as southerners  even Trevor.  Keep up the good work Mike,  Jim,  Jason,  Jeremy and Trevor.  An avid devotee and listener  Russ

  4. I am struggling a bit with headspace gauges. I reload for 5.56, .308, and 6.5 creedmoor. I would consider myself a novice. My question is that after I fire my .308 or 6.5, the fired and unsized cases will fit into my LE Wilson and Dillon headspace gauges respectively. The case heads are flush with the gauge as should be when properly headspaced. However, after firing my M4(5.56 service issued) the cases protrude from the top of the headspace gauge. Does this mean anything? Why do the other calibers fit back into the headspace gauges before being resized but the 5.56 does not? I realize the headspace gauge is for resized cases and I've always checked my cases after resizing and reloading. I just happened to discover this and was confused as to why or if it meant my 5.56 reloads were incorrectly headspaced? Thanks, Steve

  5. So, I’m about to start loading for my bolt gun, Savage 243 win. Looking at picking up a box of Berger Hybrid 105gr...
    My thought is. Starting off about .007" -.010" off my lands... would this be a good starting point? Or should i give it a little more room to breathe?  Eric From the Reloading room

Reloading Podcast 139 - Happy New Year

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio network.  Tonight the guys are answering emails, again.

  1. Name: Chris
    Subject: leveling scope
    Hey guys, got a couple things. First I love the show. I listen to it on the regular while working out normally or wrenching on some stuff in my garage. So keep it up fellas.
    Secondly, I wanted to throw out a tidbit of knowledge I've picked up over the years about leveling a scope. There are a couple schools of thought to it. Some people think you should level the reticle to the shooter. By that I mean often times individual shooters may have a 3-5 degree natural cant to the rifle in the prone or whatever position. So leveling the scope the gun itself doesn't make sense in the realm of high precision. Personally I think this has merit but I've never tested out myself and I do level my reticles to the gun.  To level scopes my preferred and easiest method is to use some feeler gauges. You must have a flat topped rail like a one piece picatinny rail and the scope needs to have a flat surface on the bottom. My US Optics one is flat under the area where the turrets adjustments are. But regardless you just find the proper amount of the feeler gauges to fill the area to good smug and slop free fit under the flat area and the rail. Takes all the work out of it and is fast. In a pinch I have used a small piece of metal with squared up sides as well. And just kind put it in and angled it so the parallel sides were on the flat surface and rail.   I got a little long winded there but I hope I made sense. Please contact me if you need me to clear up what I mean. Once again keep up the awesome work the show.

  2. Name: Gary
    Subject: Level, Level, Level
    As discussed in your podcast, I have never had real positive results with the Wheeler Level, Level, Level. I start by using a Tipton Best Gun Vise on a bench and make sure the vise is level. I then put the firearm into the vise and use a carpenter’s square to verify that the stock is vertical. I then place one of the levels in the chamber and see if there is any difference. Most times there is a couple of degrees difference, to none at all. By the time I mount the scope and use a level to verify it is level, tightening down the rings using an X pattern a few ounces at a time somehow always results in the scope reticle being off a slight amount. I then take it to the range and place a plumb bob at 200 yards. The plum bob is hung using black parachute cord (for visibility against a white background). Again, making sure the firearm is level in a gun vise, rotate the scope to align the reticle with the plumb bob line. Tighten down the scope rings and verify that the reticle is still in alignment with the plumb bob.  Dat's it! I also believe that there are a number of variations of the Level, Level, Level as mine have no adjustment screws like Jim's. Bizarre! Wishing you and the guys a very Merry Christmas (after the election we can once again do that without being called out as Politically Incorrect).

  3. From Steven in The Reloading Room: “Have brass, have bullets, have dies, just need a rifle. Ladder test or OCW test? That is the question I am asking my self right now. I will pick up the rifle Saturday morning.”

  4. From Kim in The Reloading Room: Picked up some Wolf .223 at the range today. Brass and boxer primed. Is it worth keeping or should I just pitch it?

Reloading Podcast 138 - Ackley question

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

Tonight the guys are answer an Ackley question.

  1. Google voice from Kevin

    1. Talking about .45 acp

    2. Talking about personal experience with sabots

  2. Ackley Improved - 2 part question.
    When re-chambering a factory chamber to an AI chamber, of the same caliber, what is the starting load for 'full house' loads? I plan to load 3 shots per charge node, going in .5 grain increments, to fireform and watch for pressure signs.
    2nd part - when loading for a non-factory chambering, i.e. - 17-204, 20-223AI, 22-243AI, etc. where do you begin your starting loads? There must be some 'rule of thumb' for where begin your starting charges for either situation.that helps to keep from undercharging as well as a safe beginning point. IIRC, i have heard told that a max charge for the non-AI chamber is a good start for the ackley chamber charge. I appreciate any info..  Dale H (from the Reloading Room on Facebook)

    1. P.O. Ackley wikipedia

    2. Gun digest P.O. Ackley cartridge list

  3. I'm very new to reloading and would like more options of places to buy components other than Cabela's, I know there must be a ton of other websites to buy from, please comment what you all use. Thanks for your help. Steven (from The Reloading Room on Facebook)

Reloading Podcast 137 - should I sort

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

Tonight the guys are answering a couple more questions.

  1. Sorting Brass question. Being new to reloading I see a lot of folks talk about separating Brass by headstamp. In some ways I understand this for the precision aspect. With the recent purchase of the term once fired 223 Brass I have several different head stamps from different manufactures and then within that lot numbers. The big issue I see is the actual length of the spent Brass after the depriming process and then the full length re-size to 20 Tactical. The big issues is case length. Most of the Brass has 1.766+ length so I'm trimming the Brass to 1.753+-. The Brass with a head stamp of FC is constantly having a length of 1.74+-. The Brass will be used for plinking and for small game/varmint. Do I need to be concerned about separating Brass by headstamp? I'm separating by case length so I can load to the recommended COL for Hornady V MAX 32 grain.
    Thanks in advance for you comments. Roger

  2. Sabot follow up

    1. Hello,  my name is Dustin.  How about a .22 caliber sabot to get it down to .17 cal?  I built myself a .22 CHeetah MK1 which already launches a 40 grain v max at 4500 fps. Unfortunately the v Max's don't hold up to much more than 4500 fps even in my 1-14 twist barrel.  I'd be curious to see what I could get a .17 caliber to do!?

    2. I have two answers to the question one that is practical and one that would just be cool.
      Practical Sabot. OD 30 cal ID .284 cal. I think this would be a practical combo because almost every 30 cal has a 1:10 twist rate or better so many 284 projectiles will work great not to mention  7mm has a better b.c. aka your 30-06 is now a 7mm rem mag, your 308 win is now a 7mm-08, your ak is now good out to 600, etc. Let's not forget that you have fewer throat erosion issues than you would have from the 7mm versions.
      Cool Sabot. OD 338 cal ID . 284 cal. I think this would be cool because let's be honest a load capable of 1.5 miles while still supersonic is impressive no matter who you are. To do this however you would likely need a custom barrel to get the twist rate correct which makes it impractical for many but wouldn't it be fun to have a gun that can put down everything except a 50 that you can have for less than 2 grand.
      Keep up the good work,
      Josiah

  3. Hey guys,
    I really enjoy the podcast I found it and have been catching up over the past month or so. I really appreciate all the great information with good laughs in between. Hang in there Jim, don't let em give you too much flak!
    As for my question- I just started reloading for 45 colt and noticed a variety of diameters. .452 all the way up to .458 I purchased some .452 lead 250 grain round nose. How do I find out which diameter my gun needs? If the .452 is too small what problems if any will I have? As far as I can tell (with the help of information from previous podcasts) I assume if the bullets are too small I will have more leading.
    Thank and keep up the good work,
    Sam

Title: Great cast of reloaders

Review: A great podcast on reloading from a cast of guys who don't take themselves too seriously. I'd give it 5 stars for their content but like everything, the podcast does have some flaws. First, all the guys are fountains of knowledge, it's just tough to get them to talk, with the exception of one of the hosts, the very knowledgeable gentleman tends to bogart the show and seems to get verbal diarrhea. The other flaw is their audio. Some episodes are great but most it's like one guys audio is great and everyone else is talking from across the room. It's hard to hear or understand some of the show's hosts. When the audio does work it's a great podcast to listen and learn with. Guys, keep up the good work!
