Are you guys crimping when seating the bullet or just sizing and no crimp seating?

WapitiBob.......I crimp,I hunt with all my rifles And while I dont mistreat anything I do use my weapons,I have had rounds that were not crimped and the bullets shook out on the ride out west, I prefer the Lee factory crimp however I am using rcbs dies for the STW and am using the roll crimp on the bullet seater rite now( The Lee crimp is on the way)IMO if you are hunting with them.....crimp em

I may have a line on a same lot, 450 count of Remington 8mm magnum brass, stamped RP. I am waiting on a total count and price which should be this weekend.

Let me know on the Rem 8mm mag brass. I only have 51 pieces of it which I haven't resized but I'm sure when I do they will last as least as long as the rem 7 stw. My main goal is to find the best shooting and cheapest reloading cost per case. Yet to be determined though. If they last longer it will be worth the effort.

The set-up I use on my Remington 700 Sendero is a 20 MOA EGW for the Picatinny rail and Burris 30 mm Tactical Rings. They seem to hold pretty well and with the 20 MOA rail I can dial it almost up to a mile if I want.
Gamehawker, I have had great luck with the EGW pic rails. I have two of them, and have had no issues. Good value for the money, and well built. Someone else may have other opinions, but they work for me. Other than that, I use Leupold dual dovetail bases and rings. They DO NOT MOVE. I am putting those on my new build. ( and a VARI- x III 6.5-20 AO in them)
I have heard a lot of good things about the vortex scopes. One of the guys at my club has one and swears by it. Very clear optics. Enjoy.

He was quartering towards me from left to right. The scope was a vxIII 4.5 x14 50 mm with a cds. I was at 7500 feet elevation and the gun was zeroed at 300. 26 clicks later i put the crosshairs directly on the crease of the right shoulder midway up the body. That is the impact spot. The buck ran about 50 yards stopped and fellover. I did not search for the bullet as the evidence of a large wound channel was enough. The bullet did not exit. I usually shoot nosler ballistic tips and they rarely exit also.

Big Jake - Did you have a CDS turret cut for that load, zeroed for 300?
