Often times not always or every time
Out to a mile with some calibers. Why is it so hard to believe? 1k is easy with factory ammo especially with 6.5 prc, 300 prc, 300 win mag, 338 lapua...yes, magnums.
As far as reloading, everyone has a different method of reloading. Just because it isn't the same as the op's method doesn't mean you can't achieve the same or even better results. He doesn't want to believe that all brass is annealed, not just lapua. Even cheap 223 brass is annealed, it's done when it's formed.
Brass is started from one solid slug and must be annealed several times through the process of forming a cartridge
This may be true but often time is an anomaly more than a standard. Way more times than not factory ammo of any kind can not compete with the product of a knowledgeable reloader. Again there are exceptions but I personally have never seen factory ammo shoot better than any of the pills I rolled myself.
I've shot factory ammo that had 100 fps spread, and yes it was " Precision " ammo
If you want a great example of what factory ammo is capable of, look at the 300 norma improved builds that Ryan Pierce does. He shoots the rifles with factory Berger ammo and shoots in the .1"s and .2"s consistently. Berger's extreme spread is impressive as well on their ammo. I'm not disagreeing that reloading to a specific rifle isn't better, just pointing out that virgin brass will shoot just fine even at a distance.
I know what thread your referring to go back a few pages and you will see how he talks about it being crooked and some of the necks being dented so bad they wont chamber and those are all at 100 yards.
I was referring to Facebook posts of his. I haven't seen that issue and neither have my friends that shoot it. I'm sure he shoots a lot of it though so he probably has ran into it. It's about like anything made anymore, quality suffers to try and keep up with demand.
This is very true.
Well no kidding. The point is, match shooters do not fl size so they don’t jam a bullet......... as I just said that can happen with both...........
Cool camper. My father in law owned the ranch next door 12k acres a cowboys cowboy he woulf stay in that camper,on that old willys all elk season. With his dog Pete. We,lost him a few,years ago and a piece of,our hearts and history.
This literally has nothing to do with how the brass is sized
