  1. I do not reload so looking for some ideas for this project. I need 25 .45 Long Colts for display in Cowboy belt.after talking to some Cowboy shooters they say Nickel ammo ,new or cleaned with no primer. Brass will tarnish on leather. Round nose lead,250 grain or so.. How would I crimp with no reloader? Tried David and several vendors at gun shows,no luck. Thanks Will
  2. What is causing this and how do I fix it? I'm using a Dillon 550. Seating die in station 3 only seats the bullet. I have a Lee Factory Crimp die in station 4. Everything is perfect until the 4th station where I feel the case buckle. I reseated the crimp die. I put a good round in there, raise a dummy round and screw in the die until it makes contact. Lower the dummy round and turn in 1/4 of a turn. I raise it up, no issue; very slight crimp but not enough to hold the bullet well (I'm able to push hard and lower the bullet). I screw in the crimp die 1/8 of a turn; and what you see below is what I get. I've tried several cases including new never fired cases. I must have loaded several thousand rounds of 223 by now and this is the first I've seen this. I did not make any drastic changes. In fact, prior to this, I was had loaded about 20 perfect rounds.
  3. Hello. I recently picked up a Dan Wesson CBob (Classic bobtail) in 45ACP. I tried my typicaly 200 Gr + 4.0 gr of Bullseye. That load has been consistently accurate out of other 1911s and Sig p220s. On the Dan Wesson, while groups can cover a playing card, POI is consistenly about 3 inches high. At 7-10 years, they are about 1-2 inches high. I'm shooting with a sandbag. I'm curious on a few things... My loads are light; do light loads tend to shift POI higher? I read that light bullets print lower; I wonder if I make some 185s and see if that makes a difference. Are DW 1911 barrels better with different bullet weights? My mistake is I did not bring any factory rounds; I'll try that next week. Any feedback or lessons would be appreciated. Thank you.
  4. I have some range pick up 7.62x51 brass I picked up. I have a good load for my 308 brass using Reloader 15. I know 762 brass is sometimes thicker and less capacity. Will it be enough to cause a problem or should I back up my powder charge when using 7.62 brass? I have read both ways.
  5. What are good prices now? I just bought 200 rounds for 53.53$ out the door. Brass case federal 55 grain. That is just under 27¢ per round.
  6. I noticed the other day that I was very low on .38 factory ammo. My preferred SD round has always been the tried and true 158gr SWCHP +P. Commonly referred to as the "FBI Load". it was pretty much the standard Police load back when wheel guns were king. Over the years this load has been made by Federal, Remington and Winchester. I got to searching the internet and it seems that this load is getting hard to find. It just ain't out there. I did find some Winchester at $46 per box. After a bit of searching I found Lucky Gunner had Federal for $20 per box of 50. Depending on how much you buy, with shipping and tax, it'll run about $22-23 per box. That's a heck of a deal folks! So if you're like me and have a fondness for revolvers, now is a good time to stock up on this ammo. Lucky Gunner .38 Spl 158gr SWCHP
  7. At an auction the other night the seller had a case of Remington 22 LR ammo, 500 ct per box. He never ran it for auction. As the request section of the auction started I asked about them. He wants $20 per box. The auction company adds 10% onto all sales. So now that box will cost $22. I did a walk through at walmart, I don't shop there. They had 2 different boxes of Remington 22 LR , both are 550 ct boxes. Ones is $19.49 and the other is $19.97. Get to know prices before you head to an auction.
  8. I have some 125 grain Gallent coated bullets I want to load with unique. The only cast data I have with 124/125 grain cast bullets is with Speer #15 data. It shows 125 cast with 4.1-4.5 grains of unique at 1.13 COL. 1.13 wont plunk I loaded 1.10 at 4.2 grain and the slide didn’t lock open. Should I try this load again or bump up to 4.2-4.4?. Just want to make sure I was not riding the slide lock. Any suggestions? Still fairly new to this.
  9. http://cartridgecollectors.org/?page=headstampcodes Just a FYI.
  10. I bought a box of this at Cookeville Academy. .45 ACP 230 gr. hp. It was $24.00 for 100 rd. box.
  11. I found this company through THR and they have good prices and free shipping. I wish they sold lead projectiles though. https://www.rmrbullets.com/ Bill

  14. Target Sports USA has 50 round boxes of Speer Gold Dot LE 9/40 for $20. Note that you have to put it in your cart to see the discount. I don’t use it, but I’m passing this along because I assume that is a pretty low price?? I know if anyone sees Federal HST for $20 a 50 round box I'd appreciate knowing about it. https://www.targetsportsusa.com/
  15. I have a SW 629 44 mag I don't shoot much any more. I was wondering if anyone has any good recommendation, in 44 Spl, for self defense purposes, or house gun? I don't reload 44 spl so need factory ammo suggestions.
  16. Started using Hi Tek coated lead bullets for reloading. My new go to bullet for reloading .45's. No issues, very consistent weight and size, and good price. Using 200 gr, .452 SWC for target/practice. Anyone cast and coat their own? Just curious how difficult the coating process is. Gary
  17. Is anyone reloading 350 legend. Is it okay to use 357 bullets? I understand that .358 is a no no.
  18. Hi guys, was browsing and ran across this thought some of you would find it eye opening. Just a few tidbits. 30-30 retail $3.95, 30-06 retail $5.00, .300 win mag retail $6.30. .22 short retail $0.70, 22LR retail $0.85 and .22 match was a whopping $1.30. Here is the link http://cartridgecollectors.org/content/catalogs/PETERS/Peters Catalogs/1965-Peters-4 Jan-Wholesale PL.pdf
  19. I am always looking to add to my stock of ammo and came across this deal. If you need 22 Mag ammo, this is a steal. $6.99/box and shipping was the best I could find for the same amount of ammo at a few different sites. No Tax to TN. Check it on Midway (just search P765) and you will see it has 4.9 stars and is $12.99. https://2awarehouse.com/fed-prm-22wmr-30gr-jhp-50-3000/
  20. As noted earlier, I was a bit light in mag ammo so I toped it off some with 5 bricks of this Federal 30g H-shok "hoping" it would shoot nearly as well as my preferred Win Super X 40g jhp's. The Marlin 57M has all ways shot that ammo the most consistently but the Fed being on a pretty good sale, I took a untested chance that it would be acceptable. The method of test was off my sand bag set up that I'v used for the passed 38 years. The scope is an old Bushnel Quad Power 2.5-10 that is paralaxed for 100 yards. My target range at this point is exactly 61 feet from muzzle to target. So, my group measurements will be with a dial caliper. Each group is a 10 shot string with my Win Super X leading the 4 types since the rifle is sighted in with that particular round. The Remington 40g PSP was a top shooter for a friend of mine so I was eager to test that round here and it clearly more spoty that the Super X. By the time I put the Fed H-Shok in the gun, the 40 rounds fired had created some very noticeable heat mirage so I had to slow down and shoot the feds with a bit of air breeze when ever it happened to clear the POA. I was pleasantly surprised with these results. If that lone bottom left hit was not there, the Feds would have taken the lead by a .040 tighter group. As it was, that one round put in equal with the Remingtons despite the Rem's being far more choppy. Then theres the Win Varmint HV's. Thank fully, I only have about 5 or 6 boxes of this stuff. This particular batch is the "Thunderbolts" of mag rounds. I didn't have hi hopes for it since my last bench outing with a new to me Uberti 5.5" SAA, that showed very poor group consistency and even in this test I could actually hear a difference in the boom report between 2 or 3 of the rounds. Before shooting this last 10 round string, I let the barrel cool down. It clearly has potential and I may even try some out of a new batch in the future but for now, I'm going to stick with Super X in 40 and there was no mistake in buying the H-Shok in 30's.
  21. Does anyone in the Wilson County/Mid-TN area reload .45-70, 44 Mag & 45 LC ..... AND would be willing to help an old man set up (from scratch) his reloading? You may consider the old man to currently know absolutely NOTHING about reloading. Any brave soul out there?
  22. Some time back I come on line whining about how stick powder was a pain in the backside to get in 223 cases. Somebody, and I don't remember who, said to use my Dillon case tumbler and vibrate the cases to get the powder down. This is the first time I've loaded 223 since then and it works great.
  23. Looking for info on col just loaded some hornady brass with 25.5 varget 70 grain nosler accubond spitzer set to mag length just checking if anybody would have any info on this particular round 224 valkyrie
  24. Hi guys, I have been loading 10mm for awhile using 800-x powder, but recently got some AA#7 to load some .357 and saw some load data for 10mm. The question I have is my Speer #12 manual lists AA#7 11.0 gr start with a 1065FPS, 12.0 max at 1180FPS using 180 gold dot bullet. The test gun was a 5" S&W 1006 pistol according to book. So I load up several rounds using 11.0-12.0 in .2gr increments and head to the chronograph. Only difference I used 180 gr Hornady XTP bullets and fired from a S&W 610 revolver 3.875 and shooting the start load of 11.0 I fired 3 shots 1266, 1275, 1260FPS. The primers looked ok, but I quit shooting because my speed was close to 80FPS over what they showed with a 12.0 max load. Anyone have any data or has shot this load? I am developing this as a deer round in case I get one into bow range. Thanks for any info, I have searched quite a bit on the net. I would rather not blow up my 610 and prefer leaving the range with all the fingers and toes I came there with.
  25. I found a really good supplier of fully prepped .223 / 5.56 MM rifle brass. This stuff is priced good. And is delivered, (free shipping), via. USPS Priority Mail in just a few days. And it comes ready to load. Fully cleaned inside and out, by wet tumbling in Stainless Steel pins. Fully trimmed, resized, with the primer pockets swaged. All that's left is to run it through the Dillon. All I did additional was to chamfer the case mouths with a VLD Chamfer Tool on my RCBS Case Prep Center to allow easier bullet seating. The primers seat beautifully in these cases, with just the right amount of pressure. All to the proper depth. And none stand proud. You can't beat the price. I bought 2,500 rounds for just $179.00. (It's $10.00 more now, and they're showing, "out of stock" at the moment. But they resupply fast. I'm going to order more as soon as they get more in. I load this stuff by the 30 pound bowl full, with the bulk 6,000 round boxed, Hornady 55 Gr. FMJ Boat Tail. With Hogdon CFE 223 Powder. That stuff burns clean and accurate. But more importantly, it flows through a Dillon powder measure like water. From there it goes into .50 Cal ammo cans. This ammo runs perfectly in all of my AR's. And it delivers MOA groups in calm conditions, in both my CZ-527 and Marlin X-7 bolt guns. For this price it just doesn't pay to buy non prepped brass any more. Resizing and prepping brass is the biggest PITA in reloading. This stuff makes your time at the reloading bench much more productive. All of the loaded rounds gage properly in my Dillon Case Gauge. And they chamber effortlessly. https://msprocessedbrass.com/product-category/rifle-brass
