Reloading Podcast 163 - Mike left the kids alone

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

Tonight the guys are talking about stuck stuff.

  1. Hi everyone I enjoy listening to the podcast. It's like sitting down at the gun club talking about reloading. I started listening this winter through trevor on slam fire and I shoot with him at ipsc matches. I myself have been reloading for 27 years but still like to learn new stuff.
    I do have one question. When I am loading on my 550b and like someone mentioned a primer may get stuck on the decapping pin and then get recited. How do you fix it. It really slows things down.  Once again thanks for doing the podcast and looking forward to the next one. Charlie

     

  2. So I'm on 133 moving forward and I keep hearing you say good luck saving money but I look at this in a different light, I love to shoot way more then loading. after  the recent panics and shortages I literally had to stop shooting for two years. Sure I spent a fortune so fair and I'm about to pull the trigger on a progressive press. I'm buying it and leaving it at a friends house so as I build I can test my rounds and also he likes it as he can use it. I should say I might of gotten spoiled at a indoor range using the Dillon 1050 but that's the press I'm getting when my bonus comes in a month.
    So is it cheaper hell yes it is if you can't find the ammo and what you do find is 3 times the cost it was before.
    Just my two cents
    Lee

     

  3. Thanks for a great and informative podcast. Got a question. Hornady just released data for loading the 190 gr. .41 mag FTX bullets. I had bought a box of the complete rounds and was making some practice rounds when I notices the tips looked flatter than the factory rounds. Because the data calls for a C.O.L of 1.590" I think this may be an issue on how I set up the seating die. My question is, do you have any tips or concerns on loading flex-tip bullets? I appreciate any info you can provide.  Don
     

  4. Hi guys,
    Love the show, been listening almost a year now and am a pledging listener.  I think I started with the "optimal charge weight" episode.  Even though it thoroughly confused me as a new non-rifle reloader, I liked feeling like I was learning.  Similarly when Robin Sharpless shows up on the show - I love it.  Keep up the good work.  
    I got into reloading last year and loaded thousands of 9mm on my Dillon 650.  Because I use carbide dies on my 9mm, I don't normally use case lube and boy was that a mistake when I tried 223.  The second case stuck itself in the resizing/decapping die.  After removing the decapping rod, I made a worse mistake and cut off the case head to rescue the pin retainer nut and the neck expander.  I was thinking I could punch out the case from the other end, but because it's a full length resizer, the case seems like it is almost galled in there.  Not cutting off the head would have allowed me to remove it with the drill and tap method, but I only found out after.
    Anyhow.. not sure how I'm going to rescue this pricey Redding die.
    I looked up what people were using for case lube on youtube and found this video https://youtu.be/0117UuXiSS4 basically IPA 99% and lanolin mixed 12:1.  Have any of yalls used this or know people who do?  and is that guy on the video only using a neck sizing die to make it look that easy?
    Any help is appreciated, Winfred C

Reloading Podcast 162 - Accurate semi auto ammo

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

Tonight the guys are talking about differences between semi auto ammo and bolt/single shot ammo.

  1. Thank you for the work you obviously put into the Reloading Podcast. I enjoy listening, and I've learned a lot. I've been reloading for a little over a year, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on maintaining presses and dies. How do you clean them? How often? What lubrication do you use? Should I have some spare parts on hand to avoid down time? I personally have RCBS single stage presses and a mixture of Lee and RCBS dies. I'm sure reloaders with progressive presses would like to hear your thoughts on maintenance, too. Thanks again for producing a relevant, useful, and entertaining podcast.

    From “Nathan from Idaho”

     

  2. From Owen:
    I enjoy listening to your podcast, but haven't ever heard any of you really talk about annealing cases during prep. Is that something that none of you do? I'd love to get your opinion on the topic.

 

  1. Hi Guys, Brewer Bill here.

Mike, in a recent episode you commented about the Frankford Arsenal Primer Tube Filler. My experience was opposite of yours, I found it to be a timesaver, and had few problems with it. I removed the "pickup" end of my Dillon primer tubes and inserted them directly into the Frankford Arsenal tool, filling the Dillon tubes directly. For me, I'm glad I purchased the tool, I find filling the Dillon tubes using the flip tray quit cumbersome.  That being said, I could see how the Frankford Arsenal tool might be problematic because it seems to be adverse to ham-fistedness, it definitely needs a bit of finessing. I get the impression the tool is either a love it or hate it accessory. Also, the general consensus is that Frankford Arsenal has some QC issues. Maybe I got a good one! At 50 bucks, it's kinda pricy too.  Even taking it slow and not forcing the tool, my experience is that it is noticeably faster than the flip tray/pickup tube method. Keep up the great work


 

  1. Mike here is a topic idea reloading precision. Ammo for a semi auto. I think that could be a good topic with all the ar15's now floating around. Matt from Geeks, Gadgets and Guns

  2. Hey guys,

I have been listening to your podcast for about a month now. I am not new to reloading. As a young lad I used lead ingots for building blocks as my dad crunched out .45's on his Rock Chucker. As I grew I was drafted to sort brass and later apprenticed on the use of the hallowed press. (I still police a range for brass before I shoot and now my kids do the same) As you can imagine these repetitive tasks do not keep the attention of a young boy for long. I soon loathed reloading. Fast forward many years and I found myself with the very same Rock Chucker on loan from the "old man". (Seems he pick up a Dillon 650). I loaded about 1000 each .223 and 9mm on that press that I so hated many years before. As life would have it I needed to move two states away and the old man said he needed that press back before I move. See how dads work???? Lol This forced me to set up a 650 of my own in a righteous temple of bullet bliss in the new shop. Now due to the ample time I have at work to soak up the sagely wisdom from you guys I have a few tricks that the old man hasn't heard of yet.

Thank you for all that you do!

Jared  

In the world of shorter barreled semi's. (All data seems to be derived from a 24" barrel) Perhaps a look at maximizing the crafting of bullets for those rifles would make a good episode? Faster powder, tighter crimp, lighter bullet...etc.

I am starting to buy my equipment and will be a new reloader. I found your podcast a few days ago and listen everyday at work. I really enjoy you guys and I've learned a lot so far. Sent a request for the facebook group and plan on spreading the word about you guys. Keep up the work. BTW your facebook group is the only reason I joined facebook.

Reloading Podcast 161 - shotshell quickie

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

Tonight the guys are talking about a couple wildcats and a quickie on shotshells.

  1. Hello guys. I love the show. Say I have I 300 ruger compact magnum that I will be reloading for and I have a few questions. If I buy a neck sizing die when I resize I will need to bump the shoulder back at the same time as well, otherwise it may not load into my ruger hawkeye correct? So then how do I do that? This is a long range hunting rig and I want to see what kind of accuracy I can get out of it. On another subject when I begin load development I have lots of bullet options to choose from. Tell me why selecting the heaviest, highest bc bullet is a bad idea, or rather where is the line drawn between losing velocity and gaining ballistic coefficient with heavier bullets. I have listened to about 75 of your podcasts in a row and have gained a lot of knowledge. Thanks so much!

  2. Hey guys you were trying to decide what would be a great press that would fit Daryl's budget. As far as speed goes what can I say but don't count out the single stage press, yes I'm a newer reloader but using Jim's tip of setting the powder thrower based on 10 throws instead of trying to set in every individual throw.
    I'm just using a Lyman Orange crusher press, but doing de priming with a Harvey de primer and priming with a RCBS universal primer. but easily do over 200+ rounds an hour of 9mm. And if just doing the priming and depriming separately and in bulk then I can do close to 300 rounds in an hour.  So if he is only looking to do 1000 rounds a month even a nice used single stage press will work very well for.
    thanks for all the laughs
    Jon

     

  3. Daniel found the Easter Egg, Jim has been in every branch but USMC! I guess he can straddle the fence on army navy games. Anyway, thanks for Rick R for supporting . Thanks Dan… (Jim’s “monologue about his military family goes here.)
     

  4. I started reloading .38 Specials with a Lee loader in 1973 and have gotten into it deeper and deeper over the years. The one thing that baffles me is shotshell reloading. According to the manuals every detail must followed exactly without any deviation. Could you discuss why this is on a podcast? Maybe get an expert on to lay it all out. One of the things I like about reloading is the ability to change things. Thanks.

Reloading Podcast 160 - looking back

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

Tonight the guys are answering some more questions.

  1. Getting started

    1. Want to purchase reloading equipment and just can’t make the decision, have ZERO experience and have read, watched, and listened reloading now for 2 months and just don’t know if it should be Single, Progressive, Turret or Lee, RCBS, Dillon, Hornady.  My son and I shoot IDPA, USPSA and Icore 2 to 3 weekends a month and I am tired of buying the cheapest box ammo for $11 to $13 a box.
      I think I have eliminated the single due to my round count and just a small lean to the Dillon Square B and the Redding T7.  Below are my priorities and the top 3 are not negotiable the last two a little flexibility.  
      Please give me a good recommendation so I can start filling 2500 once shot brass we collected for the last 3 months.
      1.      Want the reloading experience to be enjoyable and satisfying not work.
      2.      Quality new equipment that will last for years.
      3.      Produce a 1000 rounds per month of good quality pistol ammo (9mm & .380)
      4.      Easy setup and swapping between the 2 calibers.
      5.      Total budget $600 all equipment, dies, powder and parts
      Thanks and a great podcast!   
      Daryl

    2. Taken directly from The Reloading Room: “Newbie question. I haven't made the jump to start reloading yet. I'm still in the research phase. I live near Dillon so i am very seriously considering going with a 650. My major uses will be 9mm, 38 special, and 223/556.
      I am almost caught up on the reloading podcast, on 148. ( thanks gang).
      I have heard all the advice about starting out with a single stage not a progressive. What do you think about the 650 but using the single stage conversion kit? It seems reasonable to me but i would like some input. Thanks”
      Carl


       

  2. I wanted to respond to Jim’s comment about drying my brass in the food dehydrator. Jim mentioned that someone dried his brass in a 250 degree oven, and it discolored the brass. The food dehydrator only gets to about 180 ish degrees, and I use a lower setting than that. The biggest benefit I see with the food dehydrator is the excellent airflow, combined with the very warm temperature. Also the capacity of these things is very deceiving; they hold a lot of brass. Plus if you want you can buy additional trays and stack them up as high as you want. I personally have never tried to “bake” my brass, but I have used the sweater/gym-shoe rack in my clothes dryer. It works, but far and away the best method I’ve found is the food dehydrator. I bought mine at Bed Bath and Beyond, (remember those 20% off coupons you keep getting in the mail). When I bought mine, it was at a considerable discount to the “tactical” brass dryers, and I’m convinced it's the exact same item, not to mention it was available locally. (Nesco American Harvest vs the Frankford Arsenal). Sorry, I didn’t use the Amazon Affiliate link. :-( Additionally, since the brass I’m drying is super-clean I can even use the food dehydrator for it’s intended purpose…making dehydrated food and jerky. Prepping and reloading, score!
    Back to Jim’s story about the brass discoloring, and possibly annealing the brass. My first reaction is that the brass is probably only cosmetically affected. Disclaimer: I'm a hobbyist with access to Google, not a metallurgist. I do anneal my brass. My understanding is that case brass must be held at 600 degrees for an hour or 800 degrees for just a moment to anneal. Unless the brass-baker Jim mentioned was using the “clean” mode of his oven, the brass is probably okay. On the other hand, if my brass became that weird looking I would be leery too. I tend to believe the discoloration came from some residue of the cleaning chemicals reacting to the heat. I know Jim’s story was a cautionary tale about extreme methods of brass drying. He has a valid point. Heck, in the summer I just turn out my brass on a large bakery sheet and let them get a good suntan on my deck…just watch out for the bird poop!
    Thanks for everything that you all, (all y’all), are doing for the hobby specifically, and shooting sports in general.
    BrewerBill

     

  3. From this thread and one other, it seems there is a lot of misunderstanding about what cam over is. I wonder if this is something that could be addressed in the podcast, even though it has been before. I'm pretty sure cam over is a function of the press, not the die. Am I wrong, or are we talking about different things?
    Mitchell

     

  4. From RLP Group, “Hello Jim Fleming. Where is it you put that fancy load data spreadsheet you're always bragging about?? “
    Tom

Reviews:

I was very much astonished that my email made it into your podcast. I would like to say that I meant no disrespect by the methuselah comment. If any offense was taken I apologize..... you know how us men are.... but I have some good advice. I hear every episode about the disclaimer of reloading and being responsible I suggest that you add a disclaimer for our " wives who don't don't appreciate the science and art of hunting, self defense, heritage, and just shooting in general...." I really appreciate all the hard work you do. I have listened to all the podcasts I could on iTunes and now going thru the archives. I got to laughing because the very first episode sounded like Mike , correct me if I'm wrong, was doing a Berry White sexy voice...... anyway thanks again. I have been humbled by my lack of knowledge of reloading, but I see as an opportunity to learn

Reloading Podcast 159 - match

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

Tonight the guys are talking primers and manuals and loads.

 

  1. I want to reload some 308's using federal premium GM 210M match grade primers. Because of a shortage of these primers, I don't think I'm going to be able to get any of these. Looking for a recommendation on an alternative primer.
    From Scott

     

  2. Subsonic .223 Loads
    Message: Hey guys, I'm wondering if you have any subsonic .223 load recipes you would be willing to share. I know they exist, but I've yet to find good data to go off of. If you're hesitant to give load recipes out (don't blame you) could you at least point me in the direction to find them? Thanks for your help, I love the show!
    -Chris

     

  3. After entering the AR-15 world, I was forced into reloading brass. It was simple and easy when i was loading only for .300AAC with 147gr. bullets, but now I'm dabbling with much heavier subsonic rounds, lighter hunting rounds, and since I have the press I'm getting into 380ACP, 9mm, 40S&W, 45ACP, and of course every rifle caliber I own. This boils down to too many combinations of powder and bullets to safely decipher a starting point for load work up based on internet posts. I've got the dies, I've got the bullets, and quite an array of powders, but I've got enough sense to know I'm not ready to put the pieces together without printed data. Simply put, I need to get a reloading manual. Since most of my firearms are common calibers, which should have many tried and true recipes, I'm most concerned with the .300AAC. This is the "newest" caliber I have and I'd like your input on which manual has the best coverage for this particular caliber.
    Also, I happen to have 8# of H-108. Printed data for this is limited, and seems to only include large bore pistol calibers. It'd be nice to use it up in .300AAC. I'd love to hear your thoughts on doing this. I suspect it's not a great fit for the aforementioned pistols, nor is it a good fit for .223 or 30-06.
    I'm not a complete rookie at reloading, but I'm also lacking in experience as it relates to reloading brass, hence the question to you fine folks.
    Thanks for your time,
    Kris

Reloading Podcast 158 - Methuselah

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

Tonight the guys are covering lee classic loader, and a follow up to primers not falling in the catcher.

  1. Hey y'all, I am getting into reloading mainly to develop an accurate round for my 20 year old Remington 700 30-06. I absolutely appreciate the hard work and knowledge that goes into each podcast.  It is very informative and entertaining, especially when y'all pick on "the old guy" aka Methuselah... Anyway my only problem is I have no room for a bench at the moment. I have been looking at the lee classic rifle loader (hammer style) and the hand press style. I have many other semi's and guns that I may reload for but not at the moment. Any thoughts? Thanks for all the work.
                               Bradley

  2. I failed to mention in my first message that NONE of my friends or family reload... set in their ways or Ill-informed I guess... I have been hunting and shooting since I was old enough to hold a gun.  33 now and very mechanically inclined. All my brass has been shot through my gun Bradley

  3. Hornady Classic Primer Drop Solution
    Just heard the last podcast today and I wanted to talk at you through the radio, because I know the problem the caller had with his primers falling out the wrong way. My dad and I just set up his Classic Kit and I had the same problem at first. The kit comes with a hand primer and the "Positive Priming System" and it caused a little confusion. We started with the hand primer because the Positive Priming System is a little arm that goes in the ram and loads primers on the down stroke, but without the Single Stage Primer Filler, an accessory you have to buy separate, you have to put each primer in the little cup one at a time by hand and it is a pain. He probably had the same idea and just left that arm out, because you can't lower the ram all the way without it being in the way of sliding in a shell. With the arm of the Positive Priming system in, the primer you pop out runs into the arm and drops through a little hole in the ram and into the primer catch pan, if you take that arm out to make loading shells easier the primer just runs down the ramp in the ram and out the front of the press on to the floor. The manual shows how to install that arm, but doesn't say anything about the primers falling out if you don't put it in.
    Thanks for all you guys do, love the show.

    1. Enjoyed the podcast as I always do. I need some advice from Jason on a piece of equipment. Not reloading but unloading equipment, a Desert Eagle in 44 mag. I greatly respect his opinion and thinking very seriously about getting one and was wondering how he is enjoying his. Like most people limited funds and torn between a Dillon 650 reloading press and joining the progressive press crowd or getting the Desert Eagle. Life is trade offs and I am sure I can't go wrong either way I go with this decision. Thank you as always. Russ

    2. Hey guys,. Love the show. I always enjoy the friendly banter and loads of good information.. just finished listening to your Dillon interview.. great interview... I always enjoy and look forward to the next show. Thanks again guys! ????

  5. Evening,
    I have recently become hooked on your podcast. I drive about 2.5 hours a day. I don't necessarily always agree with you guys, but I have learned a bit, been entertained a lot, and hey, you are way better company than the crap radio on today. I am a competitive bullseye shooter that has loaded tens of thousands of pistol rounds, but I am also 100% new to rifle. You guys have helped me a lot in this area. Problem is, I have caught up on episodes. I am using Castbox to play your show on my android phone. It only allows me to go as far back as episode 122. Any advice as to how I could download the first 121 episodes? Any help would be great!
    Thank you,
    Jack

Reloading Podcast 157 - Powley computer and other questions

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

Tonight the guys are talking about Powley computer and a rehash of basics.

 

  1. Gents, I really enjoy your podcast. I have been reloading for the past 35 years so I am not exactly the noob that I am talking about.
    Today I saw a post on Facebook where a shooter was asking the question about what they should use,acquire, seek to begin reloading. That caused me to stop and remember that at one time we were all noobs at reloading. Perhaps a show on what the REAL basics are that you need to get started would be helpful.
    My first press is was a Lee hand press that I still use today when I want to do some small batches, deprime, etc when I am just sitting around watching TV or listening to a podcast :)
    A discussion on selecting powders is also helpful.
    One area that I have not heard discussed is why one powder is better than another. I don't mean the burn rate and pressure but also taking into account the volume of the load in a case. And why maximum volume is desirable (without compressing the powder).
    Also a discussion on the correct way to measure case volume would be helpful. Even a discussion on the different brands of brass and their relative case volumes would be interesting.
    Finally any resources for calculating pressures and loads would be helpful. I am aware of the one software package out there that does all of this. But I have also heard that some reloading mills use a spreadsheet.  Powley Computer
    Keep up the good work and let the banter flow.
    Cordially,
    Lynn

  2. Been loading auto pistol ammo for a while now so I have become familiar with tapered crimping. Wanted to start reloading .38 but a lot of the plated bullets have no cannelure for a roll crimp. Are the plated bullets soft enough to have a light roll crimp or would that damaged the plate?
    I'm using Lee carbide 4 set dies.
    Thanks guys for your time making the podcast each week.  Greg

  3. Hey guys,
    Just listened to episode 154 with Gary from Dillon. Good podcast as always, even though I am more of a Hornady fan. Nothing against, Dillon. Just a preference.
    Anyway, I heard your letter of the listener with stuck primers that were getting ripped. This happened to me last week while loading 38 SPL for the Dear Wife. Definitely not the result of pressure as they were previously loaded with Lee 358-125 RF over 3.6g of Bullseye. I've NEVER had this happen before, but by the time I got 500 loaded I had to chuck around 60 cases. All Winchester nickel. Previously loaded somewhere between five and 10 times. However, these were Wolf primers. So, the only thing I can think of is a combination of excessive soot in the primer pocket (no, I do not clean primer pockets on pistol brass), cheap primers and maybe a bit of something in the metal from the Wolf primers reacting to the nickel plating. I dunno, but what I do know is I'll be reserving the Wolf primers for my 9mm for matches where I won't be recovering the brass anyway. I did a comparison a couple years ago where I compared the Wolf to CCI-500 with this bullet (powder coated) and Power Pistol with 10 shot groups. The Wolf primers ended up yielding velocities about the same as CCI-500 minus .1g. Meaning 5.1g of powder with Wolf equaled about 5.0g with CCI-500.
    At any rate, keep up the good work. And guys, when you are giving Jim a hard time remember- old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill. Trust me. :)  Jeff







 

Reviews:

I just listened to the interview with Gary from Dillon Precision.   I just want to encourage anyone with issues to contact them sooner rather than later. I bought my first firearm two years ago. Now I have six guns and reload 9mm, 5.56/.223, and 12 gauge.  But regarding Dillon: I bought a super swager from them last May and just crushed case after case. Frustrated I gave up until last week. I called up Dillion and they had me measure the swaging pin. It was a large primer pin. Now why I didn't think to measure it. Geesh. Idiot move. But it was sent from the factory with the small case holding pin and the large primer swage. So for new reloaders who don't know better: CALL for any issues whatsoever.  They sent out a correct pin and I swaged all the 556 brass I had gathering in a bucket. Brass prep still sucks. But it's cheaper than therapy. Chris

 

Hi Mike and company, Brewer Bill here.
Regarding the brass cleaning segment of episode 149, I'd like to add my two cents. I use the wet cleaning method, LSD, (Lemi Shine & Dawn), with stainless steel media in a Thumler's Tumbler. After trying many ways to streamline the process, Lyman came out with a product that has revolutionized my cleaning regimen. It's called the Rotary Tumbler Stainless Steel Pin Media Sifter Set. It is a two piece nesting set into which you pour your clean brass and stainless steel pins. The upper "pan" catches the brass, and the pins fall through into the bottom pan which is made of very fine stainless steel mesh. From that point you can rinse the brass and pins to remove most of the dirty, soapy water, and further separate the brass from the pins. After I finish with this step I place the brass into a rotary separator, (filled with water), and remove the rest of the pins from the brass. The biggest benefit for me is that I only have to fill my media separator once because the brass and pins going into it are already rinsed. The water filled rotary media separator is now just being used to separate the pins from the brass, and not rinse it. I then dry the brass with a cloth and place the brass into a food dehydrator to finish the process. I now have a pile of lonely, unappreciated bowls, colanders, buckets, screens, and separators gathering dust in my basement.
I've also recently switched from the thinner stainless steel pins to the slightly larger diameter ones. The small ones can sometimes wedge two pins into the flash hole.
Keep up the great podcast.

Brewer Bill

Reloading Podcast 156 - To turn or not to turn

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

Tonight the guys are talking a little.

  1. Neck turning
    Message: I have been listening to your podcast and enjoy it and look forward to it every week. I have been reloading for about 20 years, but I recently built a AR 10 in 308, so I am now loading for it, I am not sure what kind of grouping to expect, which leads to my question, is it worth my time and money to neck turn?

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!
    Jared from the podcast facebook page.

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,

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

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

  1. Why does weight matter

  2. What are all the different types and why

  3. What is BC and why is it important

  4. Cast and treatments?

  5. Coating bullets?






 

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

Title: Thank you for your information
Review: You guys do a great job having fun and teaching reloaders the ins and outs of reloading. I have been reloading for a couple of years on a 650, 550 and a 950. I am YouTube and book taught (reloading manuals) and you guys and my targets give us the confidence to continue in our obsession...hobby. Cheers

Title: Can't Get Enough
Review: As someone who is new to reloading, I am looking for all the knowledge I can find. The hosts have a tremendous amount of knowledge and I enjoy the way they put it out. They work well together and compliment each other. The information is put out so as not to confuse the listener. I have emailed the show with questions and they respond quickly, engaging me through email to help me out. I really look forward to each podcast. Sgt. Maj. Michael G Hawkins (Ret)

Title: Excellent 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?
