Re: AR-50 Reloading Press Ammo 50 BMG

Yep, It's pricey but if you shoot much it pays back pretty quick....

Brass prep for this caliber is a PITA.... FL sizing takes a man and a small boy so be sure and mount your press to something very solid.... Imperial sizing wax is your friend here and be sure to lube not only the outside of the case but the inside as well.... You will need to trim your brass just like any other bottle neck case since over repeated shots it will grow to the point where it won't chamber.... You also will need to ream the primer pocket to size if you want reasonable success in seating your primers.... The good news is once you prep your brass it will be easier for successive loads (until you reach the point where you need to stress relieve your brass necks).....

Re: AR-50 Reloading Press Ammo 50 BMG

I went with the Lee Press. I also ordered some imperial wax so I don't bust it too fast.

I plan on ordering some Lee collet dies for neck sizing because, they the worked so well on my 308. Guess I'll be waiting awhile for those to be made.

Any good links to AMax loads with the AR-50?

I bought an accumax and am thoroughly impressed with it! I can load standard 7/8 dies and also quickly adapt it to load my 50bmg.
Shes a beauty
