Re: I fouled up BIGTIME! Please read!

I have been a reloader for 40 years and never been a fan of reduced loads.
People that taught me at different times told me to stay away from them and it is better to use a smaller cartridge than reduced loads in a bigger one.

Didnt read thru the whole thread, but...Mistake #1, using a pre-64 with iffy loads, #2 using heavy bullets for "reduced" loads.

Re: I fouled up BIGTIME! Please read!

Thank you for posting the information in this thread. The information, along with what I have read other places will (hopefully) help guide me away from a similar incident as I start the path of reloading, especially lower recoil loads.

My current thinking is to use trail boss powder to keep the case fairly full while reducing the loads for beginners (and frankly also for my rebuilt shoulder).

Take care,

Harry

Young fellow had a better season, killed a little buck with one shot. Still a little gun shy but moving forward.

Re: I fouled up BIGTIME! Please read!

Looks like this thread is a couple years old, but it just popped up again... and I'm glad I had a chance to read it. I have never tried making true reduced loads, but with two young boys I'm starting to think about their first big game rifle and how to load for it. Having something happen like this would really be difficult to deal with, and really takes courage to tell people about on a public forum....

Thanks for sharing your experience, it really is valuable to pass along. Overall a great reminder for me to really focus while I'm reloading, as well as keep up with all of the little things like wearing safety glasses.
