Great advise and spot on processI don't really ever comment. NEVEr.
#1 do your homework.
#2 be prepared to learn through failure. This is an art. Learning takes time.
#3 give it time. Be meticulous.
#4 single stage press and build slowly.one step at a time and small batches.
# 5. Get neck tension down. It is a feeling
#6 weigh every charge the same. Yes use your scale don't just drop tube. Measure twice cut once.
#7 make sure you are lubing each piece of brass exactly the same.
#8 booze after bullets.
#9 even if you by thes stuff as another guy has it will run and press/ measure differently.
#10 shoot ladder loads at 400 - 600 yds to get powder charges down and loading parameters.
I run a MEC metal press, Redding dies, Forster Primer. Rcbs beam scale 1010. Rcbs powder dropper, Imperial sizing wax, graphite inside necks, comparator Hornady neck trimmer.
If I do my part my loads are 1/3 to 1/2 moa and no I don't neck turn out to 600.
I load for 1/2 the cost of shelf ammo.
