Reloading Podcast 175 going progressive, not that way...

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

Tonight the guys are talking about when should you go progressive?

  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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
