Re: Reload company

I think you will end up way ahead if you just invest in some basic reloading equipment.It is not hard to learn,and you will get alot more satisfaction from loading your own.If you buy the equipment,there are plenty of people on here who will walk you through it,I think you will be glad you did it,once you get started.

I agree, I know alot of people that won't shoot ammo made by somebody else it could as you said it goes boom to many things that could go wrong. just my 2 cents.

I agree, if you are going to do it right the rifle needs to be in the loaders possession during load development. He can probably load a better quality round than the factory stuff, but weather your rifle likes the recipe you don't know until you shoot it.

Re: Reload company

Rookie1,
..for .308 cal you can get some pretty good factgory ammo, for the price difference, (unknown?) you may just be splitting hairs.

Depending on your rifle and assuming the guy will be doing full-blown load development you could be looking at some serious time and cash, however if heís only doing basic loads, you may just as well buy some Federal Gold Match or the like.
If youíre even slightly interested in reloading, and are this concerned about having accurate ammo, I would do some more research and think about getting into it yourself.. components for .308 are widely available..

Then again, if you donít have the time then its another story, and I would go back to option A and look at some good match quality factory ammo.
Good luck.

Re: Reload company

I was offering custom load development and ammo for sent in rifles, but that is comming to an end shortly.

You wouldn't believe the number of people that call and want to know if I can make their ammo; hotter, faster, flatter shooting. Than factory ammo.

I tell them the velocities are simillar to factory but the accuracy is much better. Thats when they say thanks and hang up.

I triple check the process of powder dispensing and have never had any load problems, but I'm ending the service, it's not worth the trouble. Finding components are a pain, and it's interferring with my regular work.
