    Reloading 6.5 x 06

    I agree with forming using .270 Win brass (unless you also have a 270). Using 30-06 brass is a little more work as the necks get a little thick. 25-06 cases form slightly short but are useable.

    Make a modified case without a lathe??

    I would not FL size unless you are going to use this for multiple rifles. Use a case fired in this chamber for a custom fit. I neck size the and then expand to .001" over the diameter of the bullet, so the bullet slides in the case but isn't sloppy.

    Question about Fire Forming 257 bobs into 257 AI

    If the smith didn't set the barrel back by a thread before chambering to the Ackley you don't get the crush fit that arch408 is talking about.

    Question about Fire Forming 257 bobs into 257 AI

    I use the COW method to fire form my 257 Ackley and have yet to lose a case. If it is used 257 Roberts brass I anneal first. New brass I skip this step. Step 1, run brass through 257 AI sizing die. Step 2, prime with magnum large pistol primers. Step 3, charged with 14 grains of Bullseye pistol...

    Verticle Spreading and load development help - where to go from here?

    Are you shooting off a lead sled? If so, try just bags front and rear. I've seen a lead sled cause this problem with a Browning A-Bolt in 300 Win Mag. Worked weeks on loads before removing the sled. Once removed groups tighten right up.

    Any (7mm-08 / H414 [or 760] / 139SST) 1st hand experience?

    I wouldn't waste much time with H414, it has been discontinued.

    How many rounds taken on a hunt?

    On a day hunt, I carry 10 rounds in my pack and whatever my rifle holds. The exception is when I carry my Ruger #1. Then I have one for my rifle, two in my coat pocket, and eight in my pack.

    Who remembers the Herter's Catalog?

    We purchased a lot of different products from Herter's. Their duck decoys were excellent. I gave a dozen of them to the neighbor boys last year to start them off duck hunting.

    Resizing brass with live primers

    I raise the decapping rod and pin, so that pin does not contact the primer. This way the expander is still in place and nothing is removed. I've never had a problem

    Model 70 safety problem

    I had Timney install their trigger in my Post 64 model 70 (push feed). After receiving my rifle back, I tested the safety and it seemed to work ok. I took my rifle to the range, shot less than 20 rounds, brought it home, cleaned it and put it in the rack. That was two years ago. This spring I...

    Sako rifle and a stuck case in the chamber

    Use a brass bore brush, push it through the neck and pull back. They usually pop out.
