Different Brass Prep For Different Loads?
Well now I got thinking... [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]
First of all, I usually have just one load for one rifle, this is a new situation somehow so please bear with me if the answer is all too obvious for you more experienced people.
I have a large chamber in my 338 LM. One load with 300 SMK:s gives me brass that is very easy to resize. Another 225 SST load is a hotter one and the cases expand a tad more, easy to feel the difference when FL sizing, which Iīve been doing until now.
Now,should I keep the brass for each load separate? I just partially sized a bunch of brass for SST:s for a snug chamber fit (and to minimize brass work) and realised that if I load 300 SMK:s with this brass my load wonīt be the same anymore. The 300 SMK load doesnīt actually fully expand the brass to the chamber dimensions, Lapua brass is tough - and the TRG-S chamber is huge, I suppose.
Or maybe just K.I.S.S. and keep on FL sizing it all for simplicity? Iīve been miking stuff like crazy all day, canīt decide.
I may get the answer today though, going to see how the SST load works now ,it must have changed as well because of the change in sizing process. Thereīs no telling of the uniformity of this chamber either, not with my tools so all I can do is go shooting and hope to see some changes. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
