    SOLD/EXPIRED Fiocchi Large Rifle Primers on RE

    I have used them in the past and they work OK. I gave my nephew two bricks (1500 each) of Fiocchi Small Rifle primers, along with 5000 WSP and 5000 WSR, a while back to try out. So I guess I gave him $560.00 worth of Fiocchi primers. But he shoots a lot of 2 and 3 Gun matches, and at my age I...

    6mm Remington Ammo

    Ben, I have been reloading for 40 some odd years, but I still consider myself a 'newbe' and learn new thing constantly. See, you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    6mm Remington Ammo

    Amen to that. Even using the power measuring system on progressive press need to be checked often to make sure charge is correct. I use my progressive to crank out pistol and my prarrie dog cartridges. For my hunting/precision long range loads I want everything exactly the same, hence I use my...

    6mm Remington Ammo

    Start with a Single Stage Press! Learn the basics before spending a of lot of cash on a progressive. You can pick up a used singles stage for a reasonable price. Shoot I have a RCBS Partner I can let you have.

    6mm Remington Ammo
