    Ideas for New .277 build

    6.8 SPC is a great caliber that shoots a 270 bullet.

    Do all rifle???

    I used to think the .308 was, then the 6.8 SPC. Then after lots of research and studying my choice now is the 6.5 Creedmoor. It is very accurate, low recoil, can reach out far, and factory ammo is everywhere. Shooting and hunting is all about accuracy, you need to practice and practice a lot...

    Best case trimmer??

    I've been using a Gracey power trimmer for over 25 years, best money I ever spent. Once you get setup for your caliber, changing collets and adjusting the cutters, it only takes one second for each brass. It trims, deburrs, and tapers inside all at once.

    To brake or not to brake

    I have the same rifle and caliber, and yes I bought and installed a muzzle brake. Yes it does make it loader but the extra bonus is my barrel doesn't hardly move upward when I shoot it. I can clearly see my bullet impact my targets, the brake I bought is call Quite brake, don't remember the make...

    New to reloading question.

    Try AA2015 40-41.5 grains, I use this in my 308 loads, very accurate. Shot out of my Remington 700 heavy barrel.
