RLP 075 - More questions

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

  1. Todd Senne Just starting in reloading and love the podcast. I have a newbie question. I'm just about to build a reloading bench and have been doing research on features people love about their benches. My biggest question is about mounting the press. What's your opinion, removable mounts, mount to a board and clamp or just bolt the sucker down. I don't have a lot of room so I like the idea of flexibility, but I am worried about stability. Thoughts.  Also, what is the one little feature you would consider a must have.  Thanks
  2. Drew Huckaby  I've been shooting OCW tests on various loads at 200 yards. (.(.223 &.308) over a Caldwell chronograph. I can get groups with less than 1/2-3/4" of vertical spread but speeds can show as much as 70 fps difference. I trickle every load manually. Bullets are 69 and 168 respectively.  
    1. Q1: How much vertical spread should be expected at this 200 yd (will shoot 600 soon) distance if you get that much spread?
    2. Q2: If vertical spread is tight could chrono be wrong?
    3. Q3: will a digital auto trickler like Rcbs combo produce less speed deviation than manual trickle? Love the show, God bless.
  3. Phil Rabalais  Possible show topic, or at least something to fill part of an episode: It's been asked (and answered before) whether certain aspects of case prep make such and such a difference, or how much difference. Are there any particular recommendations you make to a novice reloader that is looking to push accuracy of his rifle rounds.  In other words:  If you can shoot X group (call it 1 moa) then I'd say do this and that to improve.  Don't worry about XYZ until you're shooting Y group.  I have a lot of practice to put in tightening up the loose nut behind the trigger, but when I can get my consistency up I'm going to end up going down the rabbit hole of "What else can I do my make my loads more consistent." Love your show guys, makes my office job more bearable while I day dream of the rifle range.
