Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio Network.
Tonight the guys are talking about building benches.
Nick Jones posted: A segment on benches would be great for new guys/just starting stage. Build vs buy, what materials work and what doesn’t. Making the most of space or building it big enough for future presses/gear.
25 - 45 Sharps: The .25-45 Sharps is a firearms cartridge designed by Michael H Blank, then CEO of the Sharps Rifle Company, LLC, as a general hunting cartridge for most North American game, in particular Deer, Antelope, Hogs, and Coyotes. Unlike .300 AAC Blackout which was targeted specifically at the suppressed rifle market, and adapted to hunting, the .25-45 Sharps was designed primarily as a hunting round. That is not to say the round does not have tactical applications as its ballistics exceed that of the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge. The cartridge name is derived from its caliber (.257) and case length (necked-up 5.56×45), as opposed to older hyphenated cartridges that were named for caliber and powder charge. Factory ballistics with the 87-grain bullet equal those of the original .250-3000 Savage with the same bullet weight.
