first thanks for all your posting on loading. I am having a 338am with a abs carbon wrapped barrel being built. Its your fault, goodgrouper, I have read your report on 338 thunder and had to get the abs barrel. I AM NEW TO HAND LOADING.I need help with phone numbers to get equipment.I have read where you said to get a tool to measure the bullets baring surface from Tubbs company, a neck turner, a maplats trimmer, a Sinclair or other comparator tool for the ogives, Measure neck thickness, get bushing style dies,not expander ball dies? Is that right? Is there any thing else i will need? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif I realy need some help here and phone #'s for equipment. thanks for your help.
