The majority of the BR (both SR and LR) FL size based on surveys at Br central! They are after accuracy. So that really kills the NS is "the" superior for accuracy theory.
Properly sized dies that are adjusted correctly lead to better accuracy and case life.
NS is touted when people do not know how to adjust the dies, buy oversized dies, then NS and suddenly think it helps them. Yes compared to what they were doing, but not compared to proper dies and correctly setup to FL size.
NS and then body bump die is NOT NS, that is FL size, just done in two steps.
Specific example, world record 5 shot 1.4" group at 1k was shot with shortened 338 Lapua brass that was shot 54 times at time of record setting. Thrown away after 80th reloading. NO NS only brass has remotely every done that.
It doesn't matter if you agree with me or not !!!!!
I answered his question about a belted case . the 338 Lapua is Not belted !!!!!! (A belt is the ring
at the rear of the case body that the round head spaces on). Just incase you don't know that.
I don't know why you dont like Neck sizing But that is your choice and as far as how I size brass
I think after over 50 years of reloading I do know how to reload. and I do know how to set
any die properly.
We can debate how many more loadings you can get than me but that does not help the guy
that ask the question. If you would spend more time trying to help those that ask for help
instead of finding fault with everyone that you don't agree with it would be productive.
Post your opinion and let the poster decide. Yours is not the only way to do something.
Besides how many benchresters use belted cases ?
Stick to the questions and refrain from the character assassination and we will do fine, I respect
your opinion but this is of no help to the man that ask for help.
Enough said .
Sorry Steve O. and Len.
