    Stuck case in chamber

    I recently had a proof barrel put on my .300WM Sendero. I’m working on developing a load, and have yielded good results from 70gr of IMR4831, with a Nosler AB 180gr. In fact that is the same recipe for the weapon prior to adding the new barrel. Here is my “hmmmm” moment. I had no indication of...

    Looking to buy at least 4 pounds of retumbo, but I’ll take whatever you’re willing to sell. I have a perfect load for a 28 Nosler that I don’t really want to abandon once the little retumbo I have left is gone. I live in south central Montana. Let me know if you have any to spare. Thanks guys!

    IOSSO Case Cleaners

    Noticed Creedmoor Sports is running a sale on IOSSO cleaning products. Anyone have experience with these cleaners? I did a search on the forum and found nothing but 10 year old posts. I pretty much only use Brass Juice now but have looked at buying a cleaner for my ultrasonic cleaner to clean...

    Browning .30-06 Semi Reloading Advice

    My parents gave my son a Browning .30-06 semi auto rifle some time ago. I think it could be a good step up for my son in the future who is nearly 11 from the 260 Remington he currently shoots when he can handle it and when we begin elk hunting. My hope is that it’ll be a bit less recoil than my...

    N565 for 28 nosler?

    Was wondering if anyone has tried the N565 with their 28 and if so what kind of results they got. Been using US869 with decent results as well a rl33 with promising results. Seems N570 is the go to in the 28 but that stuff being like hens teeth I thought I might give 565 a try but wanted to...

    Sorting brass?

    I finally found some Winchester brass for my 7mmWSM. Barreled action is at PAC-Nor getting a new tube and brake put on. I weighed the first hundred pieces and found quite a wide assortment of weights per piece. I’m not sure what to do now, these are hard to come by. I’m trying to start out...

    Velocity spread based off load or reloading practices

    I see a lot of talk on small es, and the use of it to ‘determine’ the node. And developing different loads chasing a small es on velocity. In my experience I’ve found reloading practice such as annealing, uniforming flash holes, Wright sorting primers, along with other consistent practices are...

    What powder for 6.5 PRC with 20'' barrel?

    Just purchased a 6.5 PRC with a 20'' proof 1-7 barrel. It was previously owned and had been shot using h4350, everything I've read is recommending a slower powder. My question is should I stick with the faster powder to achieve the best velocities out of the short barrel? Hopefully someone has...

    Reloading for 450 Bushmaster

    Hey, I just got dies for my Ruger American in 450 Bushmaster and had a few questions. I read in the Hornady manual that this round headspaces on the case mouth and heavy crimps should be avoided so that excessive headspace is not created. Should I avoid or minimize chamfer on the mouth? Can it...

    Wondering about VV N560 for 300 Win Mag.

    So I finally decided to reload for my 300 Win Mag. 32" H S Precision barrel 1 in 10 twist. I'd like to use Berger 190 gr. VLD Hunting bullets. My question is about the powder. V V lists the N560 as a compatible powder. Does anyone here have experience with this powder? I know H1000 is the go to...

    Availability of H1000 and Retumbo

    I’ve noticed very recently (now that I need more) that H1000 and Retumbo are very hard to find. I live in Missouri within 1 hour of both Midway and Grafs. Called grafs today, Retumbo must not be being made any more, and H1000 out of stock. I have a 338 Lapua and a 6.5 SAUM in which I was using...

    Whether and when to nitride stainless barrel and action.

    I have a brand new never fired semi-custom rifle , a takedown switch barrel on a Montana action in 338-06 ai, 30-06 ai and 25-06 ai built by a reputable gunsmith. Having owned the gun for 5 months and still not had time to fire it the first time is excruciating but though the pain is exquisite...
