    What bullet are you wanting to shoot??? also you are going to want to get the Hart case saver

    Case Saver Swage Large Primer Pockets

    The edge loosens up the primer pocket quick... but enjoy you new toy

    Well, i have a friend that reloads for me so this edge may have not been the gun to buy. It was built by jense precision in missoula and feels better than any rifle i've ever had, with it i got 30 loaded rounds and 70 empty brass. I also got 200 300 grain sierra matchkings. I am hoping to use these for elk as i know some people have had good luck with them. I guess i need to learn how to reload to see what else might work in this gun, although i talked to the guy that built the gun and he said it shot .264 at 100 and was throated for the matchkings.

    Mine is a Jense as well...it's actually the one pictured on the proof research site. It is sick accurate. Greg is probably the guy you talked to and shot the rifle. I have his old gun... You are gonna like it... post pictures of your new toy

    Just how effective is the pocket saver, could one expect to get how many extra uses from case after swaging??

    I have enough experience to tell you that it works but not really enough to tell you how many times... probably a good post for the forum... but be ready for a good handful of folks to chime in and tell you that loose primer pockect are a sign that that the case is worn out and your pressure is too high etc... with the edge your are lucky if you get 3-4 rounds out of a piece before the primer pocket is loose.

    I have never heard of the case saver,looks like a cool product. I have 14 rounds through one lot of 338 edge brass(rem 300ultra brass) and the pockets are looser for sure but still not too loose? thanks for posting this, I am anxious to hear how long it extends the life of brass.
