But we need to see how that goes. When we go into hunting mode I sometimes forget cameras till its over.


I am not using a Terripin, I have been using the PLRF10 for about 3 yrs. I have no issues ranging a goat well past a mile, even in a stubble field. But I do it prone off a sand bag. What RF are you using?

I do like to hunt Antelope, they are a great long range game. Out all day and usually in wide open areas so you could watch after the shot for quite a while. Plus if you give them the care in field dressing they deserve they are some of the best table fare I have had.

Still in the stone age with a Swaro and for really long stuff, my Wilde optical RF

Need to make an investment in a new one but have been waiting until there is one out there I will not outgrow. Seems like those will do that easy enough.

Kirby, this may sound stupid but how do you fire form one in corn meal
Dewayne,

Dewayne,
The correct charge of pistol powder such as Unique or Universal. Fill the case on up with cornmeal, stuff a paper towel patch in the neck to hold it together and fire it.

Re: My New Defensive Edge LRKM

The real question that should have been asked is how much pistol powder (Bullseye, Unique, Universal whatever...)!
This is reloading/fireforming for advanced users and not beginners.

Dewayne,
In my wildcats based on the 338 Lapua parent case, those being the 277 AM, 7mm AM, 300 AX, 338 AX and 375 AX, I use 16.0 gr GreenDot over a Win Large Pistol Primer(non magnum), then fill the case with plain yellow corn meal. Tamp the case down hard three or four times to settle the corn mean, then make a wad from 1/4 sheet of TP and press it into the case neck with a punch until everything is compressed tightly. Clean case and fire.

For my RUM based wildcats, I use 14.0 gr Green Dot. These include the 257 AM, 6.5mm AM, 270 AM and 338 Ultra Maxx.

For my 408 Chey Tac based wildcats, I use 22.0 gr Green Dot with the same technique as above. These include the 338 AM, 375 AM, 410 AM, 50 AT.

I use green dot because I can get by with using less powder and still get the job done. When your forming thousands of rounds for customers every year, getting by with 10-15 grains less powder per fireformed case adds up to a decent amount of savings.

Use large pistol primers simply because they are plenty hot to ignite the handgun powder and they will also tell me if pressure are getting a bit higher then I want as the thinner cupped handgun primers will flatted much shooter then a rifle primer. If you see ANY primer flattening, your way over pressured or your headspace is to loose.

Re: My New Defensive Edge LRKM

Kirby, What do you use to fill the case with corn meal? Another powder powder measurer?
