Reloading Podcast 135 - sabot speeding

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

  1. Todd
    Yet another rookie question. I know reloading is a matter of tolerances and not absolute but I'm trying to figure out what is acceptable.
    I'm working on reloading some 45 colt. The books say oal 1.6. I'm getting some variances between 1.57, 1.58 1.601 in that range. Mostly getting 1.599. Is this normal? Am I in tolerances?

  2. Brian posted: When you guys are deburring flash holes, do you deburr every single one or only ones that have a mucked up flash hole with visible burrs?

  3. Chad posted: Ok. Theoretically speaking and also for educational purposes. Could you use black powder sabot rounds in a modern firearm? How safely? Example- say... A 45 cal bullet in a 50 cal sabot fired from a 50 cal Beowulf?   In theory, I'm thinking in desperate times you could fire a smaller round bullet as long as the sabot holder was equal diameter of the round that is actually being fired. Please comment. Thanks in advance.




Reviews:GREAT Find

I just found out about the reloading podcast a little over a week ago. The proverbial silver bullet for a source of reliable information for me. I have been listening to past audio podcasts and have gotten as far as episode 28. I am enjoying every episode and trying to get caught up to date. Enjoy the information and how it is presented. Keep up the good work and thank you.  Russ
