Reloading Podcast 093 - Casting Series Part 4: Rendering

Hello, and welcome to the Reloading Podcast here on the Firearms Radio network. Tonight the guys are talking about rendering.

  1. Ken Stankiewicz Thought I'd share this app I came across watching You Tube. For those who use the Lee Pro Auto Disk Measure its called Reloader VMD. It tells you what disk to use for the amount of grains you want to throw. Seems pretty cool. Cost $1.99 through the App Store.

  2. Rendering the lead.

RLP 046 - Do I really need to clean that brass

Tonight the guys are answering another question posted on the Reloading Podcast Facebook page and one from the Reloading Room on Facebook Wheeler Reticle leveling system

Question in Reloading Podcast is from Rooki Fivfivsix

  1. If I save my brass after a shooting session for future reloading, should I clean em right away or can I store dirty brass for a long period of time?
  2. Can I reload brass from a 55 grain round and convert it to a 62, 72 grain?
  3. I forgot the rest of the questions sorry but I will write em all down and post them later.

One last thing I wanted to ask if anyone wants to answer this.

IS NOW A GOOD TIME TO BUY BULK AMMO? Specifically 5.56

 

Question from the Reloading Room is from Ken Fries…

Ok something is bugging the crap out of me for the last week.... My dad and I both load for .308 and both use Varget... Same weight bullets (150g sp) one book says max 44.6 another says 46.9 for varget.... I loaded 40 which is about middle for my hornady book and dad loaded close to max from the website.... Here's the thing... He had a few primers that looked like possibly started to flatten.... As did I. His were mixed brass mine was ppu and Winchester brass I noticed with ppu I was showing some flat primers... Could difference in brass cause this or am I just looney?

  1. Rooki Q1.  Saving brass w/o Cleaning
  2. Rooki Q2.  Can I reload a 55gr case with another gr bullet

word from our bandwidth sponsor Firearms Radio Network...

  1. Kens question on flattening primers in ppc brass.  We found out after the show Ken is using magnum primers, so that would definitely contribute to the problems he is seeing.

RLP 044 - Reloading Cast Boolits

Tonight the guys answer a question from last week and then finish up the 3rd part of casting bullets  

We have a suggestion from Tim: Comment: HI guys,  enjoyed your casting podcasts. i was surprised that you didn’t mention zinc wheel weights. These are fairly common and will melt with lead. Zinc will ruin your alloy for suitability for casting Boolits. Please mention this on air or newbies will have a bad experience. Zinc is easily identified by sound or zn stampings.

Thanks Tim W

First off, what is a Cast Boolit?

It's really rather simple: cast bullets are merely something that you can buy and reload. Same thing applies to jacketed bullets, you buy them, reload them, and done. However, Cast Boolits are a product of care, time, love, sweat, tears, and sometimes even a drop of blood is possible. "The Grand Galena, the ore that's used to create the final product we use, refined and extracted by the heat of the Silver Stream. That's where Cast Boolits come from.

Anyway, reloading cast boolits is a bit different than jacketed bullets. #1 Cast Boolits are more fragile than jacketed are. By that I'm saying care has to taken to not shave lead from the heels and sides of the bullets. #2 proper fit in the gun's bore is critical to being able to get proper performance out of them.

use Lyman #2  alloy for proper hardness to minimize leadding of the barrel
