Re: Reloading for ARs
Some of the stuff I wrote for the Gas Gun chapter in the Sierra manual has become a bit dated at this point. If you've never dealt with reloading for autoloaders before, it's still a good place to start, but they are an entirely different breed than bolt guns. Some different rules in play here, but you'll get used to it quickly, I'm sure. Bottom line; full length size everytime, and using a small base die will never hurt. Never, under any circumstances run neck sized ammo through a service rifle. That's a major headache looking for a place to happen. Use gages. If you don't have them already, get some. Even the least expensive chamber type gages like those from L.E. Wilson (you can get them through Sinclair's) will save you a bunch of problems. Well worth their price, and I promise you, they'll earn their keep.
