Reloading Podcast 225 - Dangnabbit You Tube

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

Tonight the guys are covering lead.

  1. Chris Abbott posted in Cast Bullets & Bullet Casting: Is there a reasonably easy way to turn wheel weight lead into pure lead?

  2. Tim Denton posted a photo of the podcast on a 100" screen. Just got off work and enjoying the podcast on my theater system keep up with the great information. Let me know if you all are ever in the Denver, CO area. Thundrbo1t.




Cartridge Corner Notes:.338 Lapua Magnum:


The .338 Lapua Magnum (8.6×70mm or 8.58×70mm) is a rimless, bottlenecked, centerfire rifle cartridge. It was developed during the 1980s as a high-powered, long-range cartridge for military snipers. It was used in the Afghanistan War and the Iraq War. As a result of this, it became more widely available. The loaded cartridge is 14.93 mm (0.588 in) in diameter (rim) and 93.5 mm (3.68 in) long. It can penetrate better-than-standard military body armour at ranges up to 1,000 metres (1,090 yd) and has a maximum effective range of about 1,750 metres (1,910 yd). Muzzle velocity is dependent on barrel length, seating depth, and powder charge, and varies from 880 to 915 m/s (2,890 to 3,000 ft/s) for commercial loads with 16.2-gram (250 gr) bullets, which corresponds to about 6,525 J (4,813 ft⋅lbf) of muzzle energy.


British military issue overpressure .338 Lapua Magnum cartridges with a 91.4 mm (3.60 in) overall length, loaded with 16.2-gram (250 gr) LockBase B408 very-low-drag bullets fired at 936 m/s (3,071 ft/s) muzzle velocity from a L115A3 Long Range Rifle were used in November 2009 by British sniper Corporal of Horse(CoH) Craig Harrison to establish the then new record for the longest confirmed sniper kill in combat, at a range of 2,475 m (2,707 yd).[4][5]


In addition to its military role, it is increasingly used by hunters and civilian long-range shooting enthusiasts. The .338 Lapua Magnum is capable of taking down any game animal, though its suitability for some dangerous game (Cape buffalo, hippopotamus, white rhinoceros, and elephant) is arguable, unless accompanied by a larger "backup" calibre: "There is a huge difference between calibres that will kill an elephant and those that can be relied upon to stop one."[6] In Namibia the .338 Lapua Magnum is legal for hunting Africa's Big five game if the loads have ≥ 5,400 J (3,983 ft⋅lbf) muzzle energy.[7]

Reviews:

Just listened to Episode 223 (mostly about pressure signs) while driving to an out of town pistol match and pulled over to grab gas and type this. A few things to note.

Firstly on the topic of lube in the chamber, the phenomenon is called bolt-thrust. It’s common to see for 2-3 shots after cleaning your bore if residual cleaning liquid is present, in instances of excessive residual case lube, and even with highly mirror-polished chambers. Effectively the brass cannot “grab” the chamber walls and additional force is transmitted to the bolt face (and thus the bolt lugs) by rearward travel of the case. This manifests itself with higher than normal amounts of primer cratering as well as shiny polished flats on the case head.

Onward to the 1911 stuff, and I’m not trying to be a smartass here, but the pressure signs talked about in the show are largely NOT pressure signs.
1.) The link on a 1911 does not stop rearward movement of the barrel. If it does the gun was improperly built and it will surely break (or slidestop pin will break). This force is absorbed by the frame at the Vertical Impact Surface (VIS) upon being struck by the rear portion of the lower barrel lug (or “feet”) after the link has pulled the barrel down. The link serves one purpose: pull the barrel down after .100” or so of joint travel between barrel and slide.
2.) The upper lugs on a 1911 absorb recoil, but “flanging” and peeking of the forward lug surfaces is also a product of improper barrel fit. As the barrel/slide make their rearward journey together, the link tethers the barrel to the frame and the barrel is forced to rotate down in an arc. If this rotating is impeded by a link that is too long (larger radius arc of travel) or the barrel bed and horizontal impact surface of the frame is cut too high, you get rounding and flanging of the upper lugs as they are not fully clearance of the slide lug recesses when the slide continues back in the recoil cycle.
3.) The back of the barrel hood does not impact the breachface upon firing. It is only when the slide returns to battery that the slide impacts the hood and pushes the barrel forward and up on the slidestop pin via the lower lug radius (and sometimes the link hit we’ll save that argument for another day). Upon firing it’s quite the opposite, the barrel hood and slide are actively being pushed apart by the recoil forces imparted on the breachface (ala bolt face in podcast) and that is impeded by the forward edges of the upper lugs. This isn’t a pressure issue, it’s again a fitting issue. If there is fore-aft slop between #1 lug (front of chamber area) and the breachface, sufficient thrust may be present to cause some peening or cracking but that’s extremely rare. After the first couple hundred or thousand rounds generally all this stretching is done and the slide picks up contact with the #2 lug if it didn’t have any at the start.

The reason I said all that is that the 1911, when built properly, can and has been subject to a steady diet of 55k psi factory loads via the 9x23 Winchester, along with IPSC 38 Super and 9mm Major loads far exceeding 40k. The latter do it with the help of a compensator that delays unlocking by thrusting the muzzle down, thus allowing chamber pressures to drop, and the former does it with a big spring and uber-thick mainwebbed brass. There are guns out there with round counts in the hundreds of thousands shooting such loads.

Cheers,
Kyle

Reloading Podcast 224 - My plunk won't plunk...

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

Tonight the guys are answering more questions.

  1. Rick posted: Hi all, novice question - I’m attempting to load 9mm rounds for my PCC, but nothing seems to pass plunk test. Using new frontier barrel, upper and lower. I know pistol caliber carbines are picky, but none of my coated and plated bullets will plunk in the barrel at different OAL’s. It will take commercial Aquila 124g RN with an OAL of 1.13 however. So my question is what are some thinner profile 9mm bullets out there for reloading? Anything I might be missing?

  2. Joshua posted: Looking for Advice on .45 ACP. I have read a couple of different opinions about crimping. Some opinions I have read say, “I have to Taper crimp”, and others tell me “Crimp doesn’t really matter so long as it works it works.” I am hoping all of you fine folks can enlighten me. I have been reloading rifle cartridges for awhile now, but I am brand new to pistol calibers. Seems like pistols have the potential to be simple. Should also mention that I am reloading for a 1911. Thanks in advance!

  3. Maverick posted: Yes brass prep sucks. Make sure y’all are careful when deburring and chamfering brass I slipped and my finger is now gushing.

  4. Miguel posted: Hey Folks -  Need some recommendations – I am getting ready to reload some 223 brass for my AR – was wondering – what DIE SET you all recommend? I have a single stage RCBS press.

Reloading Podcast 223 - pop goes the brass

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

Tonight the guys are discussing over pressure signs.

  1. Over pressure discussion: (Indications of, signs, things to watch out for)
    Discussed at length, all the rest of the questions can be used for next week’s notes.

Cartridge Corner Notes:

The .38-40 Winchester is actually a .40 caliber cartridge shooting .401 caliber bullets. The cartridge was introduced by Winchester in 1874 and is derived from their .44-40 Winchester. This cartridge was introduced for rifles, but in its reintroduction for Cowboy Action Shooting it has seen some popularity as a pistol cartridge. It is not particularly well suited to hunting larger game, but it was popular when it was introduced, along with the previous .44-40 Winchester, for deer hunting. It can be used successfully on smaller game animals, and for self-defense. Current loadings are intended for revolvers.


It is unclear why this cartridge was introduced as it is very similar to the .44-40 from which it was derived. It has approximately 110 ft⋅lbf (150 J) less muzzle energy, and has a muzzle velocity about 110 ft/s (34 m/s) less than the .44-40. The bullet differs by only .026 inches in bullet diameter and 20 grains (1.3 g) in standard bullet weight from the original .44-40. The goal may have been to reduce recoil while maintaining a similar bullet sectional density. One unusual design element of this cartridge is that factory ammunition was loaded with a different case profile than the standard chamber for this cartridge, factory ammunition having a much longer neck than the standard chamber. Most reloading dies are designed to size fired brass to the chamber specification rather than that of the original factory ammunition case profile.


The renewed interest in this caliber can be explained by the increasing popularity of cowboy action shooting  and metallic silhouette shooting. Several single-action revolvers have recently been chambered for this cartridge, including the Ruger Vaquero. Most modern reloading data for this cartridge is found in the handgun section of reloading manuals.


This information was extracted from this Wikipedia Page:


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.38-40_Winchester

Personally I have had a wee small bit of experience shooting it, but I don’t  own the revolver that I was shooting. I’d say it has a lot more “spit and vinegar” than the mere 357 Magnum Cartridge. (Said tongue in cheek, of course.” But that’s as it should be, it’s a good deal larger than the 357 Case.

The .257 Roberts also known as .257 Bob [2] is a medium-powered .25 caliber cartridge. It has been described as the best compromise between the low recoil and flat trajectory of smaller calibers such as the .22 and 6mm, and the strong energy but not the strong recoil of larger popular hunting calibers, such as the 7mm family and the popular .30-06.[3]


Many cartridge designers in the 1920s were creating various .25 caliber cartridges. Because of its size, the 7×57mm Mauser case was a common choice, having near the ideal volume capacity for the "quarter-bore" (called this because the .25 caliber is one quarter of an inch) using powders available at that time. Ned Roberts is usually credited with being the designer for this cartridge idea. Eventually in 1934 Remington Arms chose to introduce their own commercial version of such a cartridge, and although it wasn't the exact dimensions of the wildcat made by Roberts, they called it the .257 Roberts.[4]


From its introduction until the appearance of more popular 6 mm cartridges such as .243 Winchester and 6mm Remington, it was a very popular general purpose cartridge.[5] Today, although overshadowed by other cartridges, it lives on with bolt-action rifles being available from some major manufacturers.

  1. My story of how to be a Dumbass. By Rusty S.

    1- Get up pour coffee and sit down to reload.
    2- Make sure dies are correctly adjusted
    3- Load freshly prepped 30-06 case in RCBS press.
    4- Make sure dies are correctly adjusted again.
    5- With left hand pointer finger reach up into underside of die to make sure decapping pin is correctly adjusted.
    6- Simultaneously with right hand pull down on ram lever running a nice shiny case into left hand pointer finger; cutting a perfect half moon into the finger!

    My suggestion is NOT to do this…

  2. Jason Posted:
    During the cartridge sizing phase I’m noticing some inconsistencies with the results. After each pull on a 30+ year old RCBS manual loader my sizes vary from .001 to .006 from the desired length. I can never seem to get the length to be consistent after each throw. This is happening with both pistol and rifle, old and new dies. After a decade of having these same results I can say I’ve never had an issue at the range or cartridge feeding. -- So, is this normal for a manual loader? Should I have any concerns or is this acceptable and others see the same results?

  3. Derrick posted:
    What is your starting load for 250 gr Keith style SWC using Alliant 2400? Alliant calls for 20 grains and if I deduct 10% as a starting load that would be 18 grains. Seems a little hot to me for cast…

  4. Raymond posted:
    I was wondering if anyone knows how to figure out my proper bullet seating depth for my bolt gun .308 win? I know what my book says for COL, but I've heard of people figuring out a way that is rifle specific?

Reloading Podcast 221 - you shot what out of a 3006

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

Tonight the guys have Matt from Geeks, Gadgets and Guns talking Sabots.


Cartridge corner: 50 Browning Machine Gun aka 50 BMG

The .50 Browning Machine Gun (.50 BMG, 12.7×99mm NATO and designated as the 50 Browning by the C.I.P.) is a cartridge developed for the Browning .50 caliber machine gun in the late 1910s. Entering service officially in 1921, the round is thought by some to be based on a greatly scaled-up .30-06 cartridge although other influences also seem to have come into play. Under STANAG 4383, it is a standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as many non-NATO countries. The cartridge itself has been made in many variants: multiple generations of regular ball, tracer, armor-piercing (AP), incendiary, and saboted sub-caliber rounds. The rounds intended for machine guns are made into a continuous belt using metallic links.

The .50 BMG cartridge is also used in long-range target and anti-materiel rifles, as well as other .50-caliber machine guns.

A wide variety of ammunition is available, and the availability of match grade ammunition has increased the usefulness of .50 caliber rifles by allowing more accurate fire than lower quality rounds.[3]

There are several different types of ammunition used in the M2HB and AN aircraft guns. From World War II through the Vietnam War, the big Browning was used with standard ball, armor-piercing (AP), armor-piercing incendiary (API), and armor-piercing incendiary tracer (APIT) rounds. All .50 ammunition designated "armor-piercing" was required to completely perforate 0.875 inches (22.2 mm) of hardened steel armor plate at a distance of 100 yards (91 m) and 0.75 inches (19 mm) at 547 yards (500 m).[32] The API and APIT rounds left a flash, report, and smoke on contact, useful in detecting strikes on enemy targets; they were primarily intended to incapacitate thin-skinned and lightly armored vehicles and aircraft, while igniting their fuel tanks.

Current ammunition types include M33 Ball (706.7 grain) for personnel and light material targets, M17 tracer, M8 API (622.5 grain), M20 API-T (619 grain), and M962 SLAP-T. The latter ammunition along with the M903 SLAP (Saboted Light Armor Penetrator) round can perforate 1.34 inches (34 mm) of FHA (face-hardened steel plate) at 500 metres (550 yd), 0.91 inches (23 mm) at 1,200 metres (1,300 yd), and 0.75 inches (19 mm) at 1,500 metres (1,600 yd). This is achieved by using a 0.30-inch-diameter (7.6 mm) tungsten penetrator. The SLAP-T adds a tracer charge to the base of the ammunition. This ammunition was type classified in 1993

Reloading Podcast 220 - Ever got your nipple stuck

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

Tonight the guys are answering more questions.

Cartridge Corner:The .357 S&W Magnum (9×33mmR), or simply .357 Magnum, is a revolver cartridge with a .357-inch (9.07 mm) bullet diameter. It was created by Elmer Keith, Phillip B. Sharpe, and D. B. Wesson of firearms manufacturers Smith & Wesson and Winchester.

It is based upon Smith & Wesson's earlier .38 Special cartridge. The .357 Magnum cartridge was introduced in 1934, and its use has since become widespread. This cartridge started the "Magnum era" of handgun ammunition.

  1. Robert Brewer posted;  Who's load data do you use for load development? Bullet manufacturer, Powder manufacturer, or other reloading manual. It seems like Hodgdon’s data is always much higher than the bullet manufacturers.  And he posted again: “Is it common to see a drop in velocity as you move closer to the lands when adjusting seating depth?”

  2. Roger A Buettner posted;  Enjoy listening to the show. I listen at work after the bosses go home. Please remember that some of us work 2nd shift and can’t watch live. (Big Shout OUT to Roger!)

Reloading Podcast 219 - You want to use what bullet

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

Tonight the guys are covering more questions about loads and bullets.

  1. I had a request from a listener about the ammo/storage crates that I made up a long time ago… Photos are at the bottom of this document. If you want to bother uploading them. I’ve already sent him these images.

  2. Vinos posted in The Reloading Room: Could I use 125 grain 357 projectiles to load into 9mm casings and fire reliably?

  3. Jack Lucia posted in The Reloading Room: What's a good powder and bullet combination for 7mm-08 for deer?

  4. Jon Cummins posted in The Reloading Room: So my lgs has a good deal on some of the Hornady .452 225gr bullets would it be a bad idea to try and load those for 45acp too?

Title: Great Podcast

Review: Went from loading rifle powder in a pistol case (never again) 6.5 years ago. To just hitting a million 5.56 rounds loaded, I would say that the knowledge I have gained from this podcast has helped me advance way faster in reloading.

Reloading Podcast 218 - Did you write that down

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

Tonight the guys are talking recordkeeping.

  1. Tim Talbot posted:

    Record keeping is something that I often don't do like I should. Most of the time, the only record I have of a load is the label I put on on the box, which is the one record keeping issue I'm actually good about. How many of you use commercially printed notebooks? How many use sheets printed from an online source? Have you laid out something yourself? Care to share your layout?


Mike I’d like to add a couple links here of info that I’ve created that folks can print for themselves:

This one is for the Shooters Data Book:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z_v6GqzUtUJyVuM2OSZruqH8DYcNklYdqmOjWSKTOLw/edit?usp=sharing

 

This one ^^^^ is public to anyone with the link:
 

  1. https://www.armorally.com/brass-counts-by-weight/

    A listing of brass by the pound...

     

  2. Jacob from Reloading Podcast Group - Here’s a conundrum. It’s been rolling around in my brain. I have a sporter weight 7 Remington magnum. I upgraded the rifle through sales and falling prices in 2015. It’s a balanced rifle and handles super well until it goes off and rattles the shooter with a long recoil impulse and large report. I have shot one group with it that i am proud of as well as the highest scoring whitetail I’ll likely ever shoot. Here’s where reloading comes in. I’d like to load it to a lesser recoiling load but I’m aware that if the powder capacity is loaded to much less than 90% than accuracy suffers. So on one hand I struggle to be accurate with full power loads because of recoil, and then lower power loads are less accurate by nature in this big case. Any experience and thoughts are welcome.


 

  1. Gerrid from Reloading Podcast Group - Ok call me a luddite if you want but I've had it with my digital scale. Back to the the trusty 5-0-5. It may be slower but when your double weighing each charge because you've lost confidence, is it really? What scales are you guys using that you trust?

Reloading Podcast 216 - 40 short and weak

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

Tonight the guys are finishing up the dillon 550 set up.

  1. .40 S&W (10×22mm Smith & Wesson in unofficial metric notation) is a rimless pistol cartridge developed jointly by major American firearms manufacturers Smith & Wesson and Winchester.[3] The .40 S&W was developed from the ground up as a law enforcement cartridge designed to duplicate performance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) reduced-velocity 10mm Auto cartridge which could be retrofitted into medium-frame (9mm size) semi-automatic handguns. It uses 0.40-inch (10 mm) diameter bullets ranging in weight from 105 to 200 grains (6.8 to 13.0 g).  
    In the aftermath of the 1986 FBI Miami shootout, in which two FBI special agents were killed and five wounded, the FBI started the process of testing 9×19mm Parabellum and .45 ACP ammunition in preparation to replace its standard-issue revolver with a semi-automatic pistol. The semi-automatic pistol offered two advantages over the revolver: 1) increased ammunition capacity and 2) increased ease of reloading during a firefight. The FBI was satisfied with the performance of its .38 Special +P 158 gr (10.2 g) L.S.W.C.H.P. (lead semi-wadcutter hollow point) cartridge ("FBI Load") based on decades of dependable performance. Ammunition for the new semi-automatic pistol had to deliver terminal performance equal or superior to the .38 Special FBI Load. The FBI developed a series of practically oriented tests involving eight test events that they believed reasonably represented the kinds of situations that FBI agents commonly encounter in shooting incidents.[citation needed]
    During tests of the 9×19mm and .45 ACP ammunition, the FBI Firearms Training Unit's Special Agent-in-Charge John Hall decided to include tests of the 10mm cartridge, supplying his personally owned Colt Delta Elite 10mm semi-automatic, and personally handloaded ammunition. The FBI's tests revealed that a 170–180 gr (11.0–11.7 g) JHP 10mm bullet, propelled between 900–1,000 ft/s (270–300 m/s), achieved desired terminal performance without the heavy recoil associated with conventional 10mm ammunition (1,300–1,400 ft/s (400–430 m/s)). The FBI contacted Smith & Wesson and requested it to design a handgun to FBI specifications, based on the existing large-frame S&W Model 4506 .45 ACP handgun, that would reliably function with the FBI's reduced-velocity 10mm ammunition. During this collaboration with the FBI, S&W realized that downsizing the
    10mm full power to meet the FBI medium velocity specification meant less powder and more airspace in the case. They found that by removing the airspace they could shorten the 10mm case enough to fit within their medium-frame 9mm handguns and load it with a 180 gr (11.7 g) JHP bullet to produce ballistic performance identical to the FBI's reduced-velocity 10mm cartridge. S&W then teamed with Winchester to produce a new cartridge, the .40 S&W. It uses a small pistol primer whereas the 10mm cartridge uses a large pistol primer.
    The .40 S&W cartridge debuted January 17, 1990, along with the new Smith & Wesson Model 4006 pistol, although it was several months before the pistols were available for purchase. Austrian manufacturer Glock Ges.m.b.H. beat Smith & Wesson to the dealer shelves in 1990, with pistols chambered in .40 S&W (the Glock 22 and Glock 23) which were announced a week before the 4006.[5] Glock's rapid introduction was aided by its engineering of a pistol chambered in 10mm Auto, the Glock 20, only a short time earlier. Since the .40 S&W uses the same bore diameter and case head as the 10mm Auto, it was merely a matter of adapting the 10mm design to the shorter 9×19mm Parabellum frames. The new guns and ammunition were an immediate success,[6][7] and pistols in the new caliber were adopted by several law enforcement agencies around the nation, including the FBI, which adopted the Glock pistol in .40 S&W in May 1997.

     

  2. Setting up the powder drop and case flare for the 550. Mike will continue his video tutorial on the proper set up of powder drop and case flare for the dillon 550 which should also help others with different brand presses get the right idea of how to adjust their set up.

Reloading Podcast 214 - Do you like my hourglass figure

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are talking about pistol cartridge reloading issues.

  1. Hoping to get some feedback on my first completed cartridge. The ever so slight hourglass shape worries me, as well as the crimp. I feel like it may be slightly overdone. OAL is 1.092 and I'm using Hornady 115gr fmj bullets. I just got all of my gear in a few hours ago so I am 100% brand new and any advice/criticism is welcome.

Reloading Podcast 213 - Debut of the Cartridge Corner

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

Tonight the guys are starting the cartridge corner.

  1. Cartridge Corner: .30-06
    Hello reloading podcast,
    I don’t remember if this was asked before.
    I am planning to reload 308 for a bolt action.
    For trimmers that reference the shoulder, do I trim before or after bumping the shoulder?  I think afterwards would makes the most sense, or is this method of trimming not recommended with shoulder bumping?
    Also, do I trim before or after setting neck tension? Can trimming noticeably affect the neck tension after it has been set?
    Thanks,
    Winfred

Reloading Podcast 211 - Nathan has returned

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

Tonight the guys are answering emails.

  1. I have to start back reiterating that I love what you are doing. My comments about advanced info or techniques aren't so much "advanced", but the request is to include those bits of info like how to know you are swaging the primer pocket enough.....

    I could not find it online or in the instructions (Hornady LNL Swage Die Set)...so I developed my own method. I started looking at the primer pockets under magnification and turning the die in until I got some swage on all pockets. Those kinds of hints from your experience will really grow the show.

    Did you know that fl sizing can grow bottleneck cases several 1000ths longer, if the die is set too long? Did you know consistency of case lube application can greatly affect shoulder to case head variation? Surely you have found these and more. Sharing your personal techniques more can help us all grow, even if we can't use it directly.

     

  2. BrewerBill here.

    A couple of podcasts ago Jim F mentioned in passing machining he had done to a friend's reloading die. Do you think you could do a segment about Jim's machinist career and how it relates to the reloading hobby. I'm just a hobbiest/tinkerer, but I'd be very interested as to how a professional machinist approaches reloading.

    I can't tell you how many times I've seen or heard the advice, "Just take it to your local machine shop and have them...". I live in the Chicago area, (apology accepted), and I don't even know how to find a machine shop, let alone how to approach them about doing reloading related stuff. In a nutshell; What mods might a machine shop do for a reloader? How does one find a machine shop? How does one approach a machinist about doing a one or two piece job? Who might benefit from having machine shop work done? What are some common machine tool process that are regularly performed by machinists on their own reloading gear as far as specialty tools and modifications.

    On a completely different subject, your segments with Mr. Sharpless are great. It's so nice of him to come on your show and give his insider perspective to the reloading world. He seems like a great guy willing to share his passion.I always learn something new when he is a guest.

    Keep up the great work.

     

  3. This is my first attempt at seating a bullet to be closer to the lands vs the books recommended COL.
    Gun is a Ruger American 6.5 Creedmoor. Hornady brass with Hornady 123gr sst bullet.
    My max col with the bullet touching the lands is 2.855”. I am seating the bullet at 2.845 and the picture is what that looks like. Should I be worried how far the seating depth is from the cannelure? Hornady 10th edition book recommends a COL of 2.710”. Am I too far off on my COL VS recommended to safely reload at this length?
    Thanks for your help I have found your Podcast to be very helpful to the new reloader.

  4. What are some signs that the flash hole and primer are not center to the case?

Reloading Podcast ep 210 - the invisible episode

Hey all, Episode 210 has horrible audio and I just won't post it.  Parts are good but I've deleted about half of it due to background noises and echos.  If you really want to suffer through it, you can check out the you tube video, or send an email to reloadingpodcast@gmail.com and I'll share the audio with you.  211 was much better, and will post as soon as it is edited.

Reloading Podcast 209 - ruh roh it went kaboom

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

Tonight the guys are answering some more questions.

  1. *Currently listening to episode 208*

    So I am one of those people that only listen to the audio-only podcast and I want to say thank you for all the info. I have been reloading for about 4 years and prolly have close to around 6k rounds loaded so far. I thoroughly enjoy learning new things and reaffirming what I think I know.

    I do have a question that I've heard mixed things about.
    I reload my rifles more for hunting. How much does off center flash holes affect accuracy? I only shoot 150 yards or less on average but I do get some 400 yard shots occasionally.
    I'm more concerned with hunter's accuracy and not super precision target loads.
    Any input would be appreciated.

     

  2. Mike Parr
    How much impact does a press have on finished ammo for long range centerfire rifle.

  3. Scott Shaw shared his first post.

    I loved this Bisley Blackhawk in .45LC. Sadly I blew it up with way too hot a load. A Hornady kit with a defective powder scale. I found out the hard way that it weighed 3X times the powder that was the load. 6.2 grains of Titegroup was the right amount , but 18 grains was what went in the case. The sight cut my head , but otherwise OK. Could have been much worse !

     

  4. Miguel Jurna

    Ultra-sonic Cleaners - who uses them / pro - con - - of them?

    I have one I use for cleaning my gun parts - barrels - as well as watches and jewelry

    What do you use in them?

    Saw a video last night of RCSB new ultrasonic cleaner - no money to buy this one - but I do have an old Harbor Freight 2.5 liter cleaner

    Do you have your special cleaning solution or do you buy the ready made solutions offered by Lyman or Hornady?

  1. My wife enjoys shooting my Marlin 336 chambered in 35 Remington. However, with the length of the stock and the amount of recoil, it takes its toll on her. She is on the petite side at 4’11” with length of Arne to match. I am currently loading 200 grain Hornady RN. I was thinking of trying out some lighter 357 bullets to maybe lighten the felt recoil so she can enjoy it more. Has anyone done this, and what were the results? It is an older gun (according to Marlin, 1952) and had sentimental value as it was my fathers. I don’t want to wear out the barrel.
    I am also thinking of getting her a 243, or a 6.5 with an adjustable stock that would be for both or us!
    Thanks for any input.

  2. James Seltzer shared a link.
    I have been behind on the podcast, life has been crazy. Anyways episode 193 there was discussion about trimming straight wall pistol case and whether or not they get longer with firing. I came across this article some time back. Basically this guy fired and reloaded a 45acp case around 50 times. The end result was that not only did it not get longer but it actually got shorter. The primer pocket got shallower too.

  3. Avery Lee Honeycutt
    Question: Do most of you clean your brass in a tumbler before you remove the primer and resize the brass? Or do you clean it after the primer is removed?

  4. Daniel Pate
    So here's the thing. I have helped my dad do reloading in the past and he has expressed I could use his bench any time. My dilemma is I don't generally have time to drive all the way out to his place. Second I live in a somewhat small apartment and don't know is there are reloading equipment I can fit in my work space. Can anyone point me in the direction of some space conscious equipment?

  5. Jeff Kiper
    Knowing what you know now. Would you start off with a single stage, multiple single stages, turret, or progressive? I plan in loading rifles , 300 blackout, 450 bushmaster. In the future pistols maybe. Low round count 300-500 rounds a year.
    The standard 30-30, 30-06, 223 ,243, 270, 7mm-08, 308, 9mm ,40 ,45acp, 357. I will be setup to load every round I have, even if I choose not to load them currently. One day I may be loading out of necessity.

Reloading Podcast 206 - loading for the reformation and other stuff

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.  Tonight the guys are talking about the Reformation and other things.

  1. Subject: Franklin Armory Reformation Straight Rifling bullet and the hand loader

    Message: The "straight rifling" in Franklin Armory's Reformation not-a-rifle-not-a-pistol-not-a-shotgun gun and the issues it creates with bullet stability has created a lot of, mostly derisive, commentary since SHOT. It has been observed that standard .223 bullets have a high probability of tumbling due to the standard design of bullets, with more mass to the rear than to the front, and the lack of stabilizing spin imparted.
    Franklin Armory's solution is to use the "nerf football" bullet which puts fins at the rear, thus moving the mass to the front of the bullet and the lightweight drag of the fins to the rear. Again, this has prompted a lot of derision, particularly surrounding single-source availability of the bullet.
    But I think I might have an idea for an alternative and wanted to get your take on it.
    The basis of Franklin Armory's solution is to use a bullet which is drag stabilized instead of spin stabilized. It occurred to me that there are already "bullets," from several different manufacturers, which can achieve the same results. I'm referring to .22 caliber copper-plated air-gun pellets. The skirt on the pellet, along with the hollow base, and sort of pointed, or at least round-nose, design could create enough drag stabilization to prevent tumbling and promote more reasonable accuracy. The skirt on the pellet should expand and allow for a proper seal much the same as the classic Minie Bullet. If not driven with too much pressure, I'm guessing that the copper plate should survive, after all .22LR chamber adapters work well enough in AR's, right?
    I can see some possible "gotchas" though. The heaviest .22 cal. copper-plated pellets I could find were 21 grains, way less than the 55 grain .223 bullets. The powder loads and ballistics would have to be figured out. And do you think that their shorter length might make chambering from magazine more likely to fail? How much effect would the shorter bullet, and seating depth, have on accuracy due to jumping the lead?
    I'm curious about your thoughts on this. While I've hand-loaded for a handful of cartridges for a few years now, I'm still too new to handloading to feel comfortable undertaking this experiment myself, nor do I have any intention of buying a Reformation, so this is all hypothetical to me.

    Thanks,
    Kirk

  2. Reloading shortened 38 special brass
    Message: I’ve asked this question before but didn’t get a reply-so I’ll try again.
    My friends dad passed away and left me a few guns and reloading stuff-one of the things he left in his shop were 5 gallon buckets of brand new 38 special brass-it appears to never have been fired-but they have all been shortened to right at .75 inches. Can I reload these using a very light 38 special load? I’d like to shoot them out of an S&W mod 10 and a lever rifle in .357. Is it safe? Thanks, M.D

  3. Hey guys. Been listening for a while now and just got off my butt and joined the fb group. Got a quick question. I would like to start reloading for my old martini and have no mentor. ( it’s mostly been iraqveteran8888, abc’s of reloading, and you all.) I have been watching iv88 YouTube as he loads for the martini but one thing is, he usuals a micro lathe to trim the 24 gauge shotshell. I don’t have the $400 to drop on a lathe at this time. Is there any suggestions you have for trimming down the brass? I was thinking of pipe cutter or bandsaw. Am I crazy for thinking this? It’s just for plinking at this time. Any input would be appreciated. I want to do this right and as safely as possible.  Jacob
