Re: Rem 710 Purchase

rotorhead,CatShooter,

Thanks for the info.

The stock is made out of well i'm not a 100% sure.I know that i can slide a $ between it and the barrel.so i'm not to close to have it pushed up when barrle get's hot.

I have a rcbs neck sizer comeing and i'm going to get a decapping die so i will shoot a few and then neck size in hopes the the shoulder will be where it should be to stop me streching and seperating cases.i would fell better trying this way first before i try to neck size with a fl die.with Me being new anyways.

Re: Rem 710 Purchase

Your on the right track. I use neck bushing die and a separate body die on about everything except for old cowboy loads for some fella's around here and my own 30-30. I don't think you need the bushing dies for a factory gun I only use them because I load for different people with different type or brands of brass I also turn a couple of neck here and there and the bushing dies help me to get the proper neck tension.

If you were to ask me before you purchased die I would have said, a standard redding full length to use when needed and a standard redding neck sizer and a comp seater by redding or forester. The pasesetter should work fine for the full length and the RCBS neck should work fine. I would check the run out of each die to make sure they are square . I have gotten some that were not correct this is why I use only redding and forester now.

Re: Rem 710 Purchase

After i shoot the shells to open the shoulder up.What is the max or is there one that i shouldn't go over on "shell" length? or should it depend on the gun.

Re: Rem 710 Purchase

I think your asking how long should you let the case get?? If this is what your asking , you should let the rifle dictate this.
Lets say you have a brand new case;
you should load that case as you would normally.
Then after it has been fired it will grow to fit your chamber.
for the next loading you only need to neck size the case and check it for over all length.

put the case in the rifle and close the bolt.
as long as the bolt locks with out too much force your good to go.
Trim all your cases to the same length( use your book ) load it up and away you go.

Are you new to reloading? If so what books and loading manuals are you working out of?
What kind of brass are you using?
I would also be curious as to the load that your loading?
I know 4831sc but what is your charge??

Re: Rem 710 Purchase

RH,

My favorite load is 75gr H4831sc with 180gr sst with rem brass fed primers.

This is the load i want to shoot i had the best luck with it untill i seperated some case.Now i'm am going to shoot a few with a lower charge and strech them out to fit gun and then neck size and try my 75Gr load again to see if it fixes my problem.

I'm new to reloading.So i'm trying to work all the bugs out and get a good starting point of how i should do things and how it works.
