    JB bore pase vs bore tech copper eliminator?

    J-B should place a disclaimer or differentiate between the two better. Many don't realize there is a difference between the bore bright and the bore cleaning compound.

    JB bore pase vs bore tech copper eliminator?

    I would lean more towards products that were designed from the ground up to be used on firearms. Also, flitz would leave a wax which would have to be removed afterward. There are plenty of products out there to choose from.

    JB bore pase vs bore tech copper eliminator?

    You clean and remove. It's not something you let sit in your barrel waiting on a chemical reaction.

    JB bore pase vs bore tech copper eliminator?

    JB + Kroil oil on a VFG felt pellet is all I use now. I've tried about everything out there. KG12, Butches, Sweets, ThorroClean, etc... I always come back to JB. If the barrel hasn't been cleaned in a while, VFG aggressive pellet works well.

    Preferred Press for Precision Rifle?

    I have a Co-Ax, Redding T7, 419 Zero. Any of these will suit your needs for precision rifle handloading. I would certainly buy the Co-Ax over the T7. If funds are available, I'd buy the Zero over all of them.

    Does velocity affect ballistic coefficient?

    I only use the magneto for initial load development to true up QuickLoads. I get my 300 yd dope from the target and use weaponized math to get me out to 1k. I give my kestrel a general velocity, true my 600 yd MV and 1k BC. So the Magneto has its place, but true velocity will come from hits...

    Does velocity affect ballistic coefficient?

    Waveslayer is right on the money. True up velocity at 600 and True BC 700+ yards.

    AMP - Will I regret buying this?

    My two cents... Handloading is all about consistency. It is the most important point to every bullet made and every step taken to make them. If you're going to sit at the bench then make the best you can. A propane torch is not ideal, however, if a propane torch and a bucket of water are...

    Annealing

    I'd probably stay away from the body as much and keep to the neck more. I started with a torch and drill many years ago so use what you have. I'd also recommend tempilaq if you didn't use it this time. The problem with the drill method is you don't have a timer or indicator, and no way to...

    Annealing

    If you anneal your brass after every one or two firings, then annealing won't matter where it is in your reloading process. At a minimum, quality brass should be able to handle several firings before annealing is needed. I decap. briefly clean (just so I don't crud up my dies), anneal...

    AMP - Will I regret buying this?

    Your mileage may vary depending on what you are wanting to get out of your reloading. If you are a competitor in the shooting world regardless of discipline, you'll get a larger benefit than say a seasonal hunter that shoots 5 - 10 rounds a year. The AMP with Aztec is hands down the easiest...

    Velocity Effect of Bullet Tension

    I'm generally one to read vs. post but this post caught my eye. I think "neck tension" is overlooked. I'll be the first to admit, I'm an expert in absolutely nothing. But I can tell you what I have found in all my testing. So take this as just one mans view on the subject. It is...

    Velocity Effect of Bullet Tension

    I'd echo this. Well said.
