Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.
Tonight the guys are talking about when should you go progressive?
Ok I have a question for the group. “We” tell new reloaders that they should start on a single stage press however I have yet to see an answer as to when “We” think that they are ready to make the jump to progressive press. I did not learn on a single stage I was lucky to have a friend that had a 650 and that is what I learned on and that is what I bought as my press. I am only loading 45 and 9mm. I do see the advantage of a single stage or a Redding T-7 style press with bottle neck rounds. So having no real world experience with a single stage I am wondering if there is a moment when a single stage reloader has that moment of let's go to a progressive
I will say that with a progressive press that you must remain focused at all times because of all the operation that are going on at the same time
This might also make for a good Show topic
Please give me you thought on this Eric Strong
I have a Rem 223 loading question. I have some 68gr FMJ-BT bullets that I want to try loading. These have no cannelure (versus my 55gr bullets that did have a cannelure). Should I crimp, or not crimp? I have access to both a Lee Factory Crimp Die and a Redding Taper Crimp Die. These rounds are for use in my AR-15. Asking since I'm fairly new to rifle cartridge reloading. Thanks Bill Murray
I'm pulling the bullets from some 1952-53 dated Kynoch belted .30-06 ammunition. (corrosive primers)
The powder looks like 4895. Does anyone have any information of the powder used in these rounds?
I'd like to re-use it if possible B.Brock
