Advice Sought on Reloading Rimmed Magnum Cases

Hi,
New here.

I'm getting ready to buy a 270 Weatherby Magnum. I intend using Norma brass & Barnes pills. Not sure about powder and primer.

I've been told there are differences in reloading rimmed cases. Any tips.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Advice Sought on Reloading Rimmed Magnum Cases

I've been doing this over fourty years and have found NO reloading differences between any bottle neck cartridges; rimless, rimmed or belted. I size and load them all exactly the same way, they all work good. I've READ a lot of meaningless blather on the web about the 'differences' but haven't yet seen any, nor have I seen any authoritative books or loading manuals pontificating on what to do different with different cases.

Boomtube,
Sounds good to me. I just had some say that they had problems with swelled cases and something about difficulty headspacing from the rim rather than the shoulder. Thanks for your advice.

What ever way your gun likes belt or shoulder. My 7mm rem likes off the belt. A friend of mine likes has the same 7mm rem and it likes shoulder. The swelled cases prob is a issue that all cases suffer from to a degree. But I have never had any real issues that I don't get with my rimless cases.

Hi,
So an FL resizing die and competion seating die is all I need? What do you think about a neck sizing die.

Do you mean belted? The .270 Weatherby mag is a belted mag, not a rimmed case. The 30-30 is a rimmed case. All H and H based cases are belted. As far as load info, H 4831 ssc is a good starting powder. Info on load data is avail on Hodgdons web site. Or go to IMR powder.com. ( same website).

AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. 7 STW.

Nothing wrong with having all three. you will need to F.L. size every few loads. Just enough to size the body. This will help with the bolt being hard to close, lets say every 3 shots. And have a good time. Loading is great.
