    Nosler or Bergara problems

    That primer in pic is fine. The fact some rounds fit and some dont makes me think its a ammo issue. That 28 Nosler brass is made by Peterson. So it good brass, usually. Theres got to be a lot # on that ammo, ask Nosler where it is and if theres been any issues. Contact Bergara also, if theres no...

    Favorite deer rifle

    I have that rifle, a 2008 model in 270 wsm as well. It has been my go to as well. But I bedded it in a B&C stock and put in a Timney trigger. Great rifle and caliber

    Rebarrel a Christensen or sell?

    Decopper your barrel with Sweets 7.62. Unless you have 10,000+ rds through your 308.

    Annealing

    I center the flame on the neck shoulder junction. You really only need the shoulder and neck to be annealed and never more then a 1/3 down the case. Annealing gives more consistent neck tension, shoulder bump and with the correct shoulder bump of 1.5-2 thou it allows for the shoulder to do the...

    New to reloading

    It could be jamming. To find 0 jump clean the chamber and bore. Remove bolt. Take a loaded round or dummy thats brass is bumped back only 1.5 to 2 thou from fired, FL sized, and seat the bullet long. Shove it in the chamber, it hangs in the lands. Tap it out with a cleaning rod. Shorten by 2...

    What cartridge/bullet for hog hunting?

    Energy kills. And a lot of guys say 6.5 Grendel with a thermal for night hunts is a good set up. And so Ive seen on TV😀. Another says he going to a 450 BM. I have both in a AR's. So I ran the numbers through Applied Ballistics and heres what up. I guesstimated a 22 cm with a 70 gr tsx could get...

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    I am open to all options. And wouldnt mind a direct thread. And would actually prefer it to shorten aol. And lighter is better. As long as it lightweight and short am interested. Thanks for the info. I will definitely look into them.

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    I figured a 160 ttsx would hold together and pass through and give a longer pbz. I dont mind dialing elevation. But a 250 yard pbz would be nice. I have a 7mag 8T 26" thats shoots a 180 vld-h to 1000 yards real good. But everytime out there Ive shot under 100. And the longest anybody I go with...

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    I must be mistaken. Am sure it was 300 prc brass being improved and thought it was a Sherman design. Well good luck with it.

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    Whats the case capacity of the 338 Sherman Max? Is it the 300 Sherman Max necked up? Cuz thats a 300 prc improved basically. Seen a guy fireforming brass for the 300 S Max. I kinda wanted to kept my recoil down as much as possible and being the 33 Nosler in kinda in the middle and shortened...

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    Am sure 7828ssc would work good since its a good wby cartridge powder. I tend to go with H powders to have better temp stability. Idk about 7828ssc and a 20" barrel?

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    I like Peterson brass better then Nosler. But I got the Nosler pretty cheap and on the way. But I'll keep that in mind. Thx

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    I planned on a 10T. That will do if I wanted to go with a hvy like a 265 gr LRX or LRAB, that should do nicely. I wont box myself into just lightweight bullets with twist or freebore. I was just wondering if anybody was pushing a 160 gr TTSX at about 3300-3350 fps. The pbz is about 300 yards at...

    33 Nosler with 22" barrel and lightweight TTSX

    So I'll probably get beat up for this post. For going against the norm. But I am going to build a 33 Nosler on a 700 mag LA with a 22" barrel. For black bear mostly, and brown bear, and elk in brown bear country. I will eventually put a can on it, and keep it as short and lightweight as...
