    300 Ham'r Released

    Just saw this today. They are calling it the 30-30 for the AR. Anyone know anything about it? https://www.ammoland.com/2018/08/new-300-hamr-cartridge-rifles-loaded-ammunition-barrels-components-and-accessor/#axzz5P8f87qij
  3. https://palmettostatearmory.com/case-of-1000-rounds-fiocchi-shooting-dynamics-223-rem-55-gr-fmj-ammunition-223a.html This is the cheapest I have seen brass 223 ammo in awhile. Maybe I just don't know the cheapest place to buy. Thoughts?

  5. Got 4 bags of assorted 303 ammo @ estate sale . About 20 rds. each. Most have age related stains .Would it be safe to put 'em in the Vibrashine in small batches ? Mostly 1943 vintage.
  6. I may have made a thread on this , but I don't remember so forgive me if I did , I searched and didn't find one. I have been reloading 9mm for 4 years and started 45acp months ago. I hear people that have horror stories about blowing up there Glock 21 and 30's with reloads. Do any of you guys know if this is because of reloaders not paying attention or is the Glock chamber a lot bigger and weakens the brass quicker ? Or anything else ? Thanks for any information.

  8. Tired of the noise and wear with my vibrating tumbler. Any thoughts about rotary tumblers (wet or dry) and brand suggestions? Considering Frankfort Arsenal Platinum Series

    Casting?

    Anyone around Columbia process their own lead and cast? I’ve been reloading for a couple of years and am now curious about casting. Would like to find someone near by who wouldn’t mind me hanging out while they go through the steps. I’ve seen plenty of YouTube videos but would like to see it first hand before I dive into it. Have been collecting lead for a while and just not sure if it’s right for me yet.
  10. We're coming up on fishing... and snake season. What are some effective snake shot rounds you've loaded for the 38 Special, without using the plastic capsules? I like the complete "roll your own" loads. Some say the larger size bird shot penetrate better and others say the smaller #12 shot effects more of the nervous system and there's no wriggling after the shot. I've also seen some vids that seem to suggest a shorter barrel patterns better than a longer barrel. Anybody got any experience with their loads in the field...or on the river bank?

    Brass

    If any of the guys that have said they wanted some of my brass reloads 10MM I will send you 70 pieces of 10mm free. It was all I found during the sorting.
  12. Has anybody but me had a problem with cases splitting on once fired 30-30? 9 out of 10 of mine split at the neck the first time I try to reload them. After trying 50 or so cases I gave up.
  13. 350 round Remington range buckets for $65 including tax and free shipping. Not as cheap as they were on Black Friday with the rebates but still about as cheap as I could find any online. https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/remington-umc-9mm-brass-115-grain-pistol-target-ammunition-bucket#repChildCatid=3376324 Also posted this in the general chat but I just realized Academy offers 5% cash back through active junky and if you sign up through my referral link below you’ll get $10 extra after your first purchase of $25 or more. Also PSA and Brownells are on there. You’ll need to go through active junky when you make the purchase though not the academy link. https://www.activejunky.com/invite/1065765 Also Winchester is currently doing 25% rebates on all centerfire pistol ammo excluding 9mm.

    Polymer Cases

    I found an article very interesting in Guns & Ammo this month. The manufacturer of the topic is: http://www.truevelocityinc.com/ I immediately thought of weight savings in using polymer instead of brass casings, but something that did not occur to me is that weapons will operate cooler on the polymer casings. Brass transfers heat quite well, polymer doesn't. As such, when fired, once the casing is ejected, most of the heat goes with it. Of course the barrel will still get hot, but the brass will no longer directly transfer heat to the chamber and surournding parts. I found that interesting. Through their tests, an M134 minigun operates 20% cooler at the bore on these rounds. I am now convinced that polymer ammo will likely be the future of shooting, at least until we get ray guns. The article didn't mention anything about it, but I doubt that these casings can be reloaded. I'm sure there will always be a brass segment to the market for reloading, but if factory brass ammunition widely disappears, it will have to contribute to a rise in the cost of reloading. I'd like to buy a box of 5.56 from them, but I don't think they are selling commercially yet. I just think the rounds look cool, and I'd like to buy a box to keep just in case some flaw is found in the idea and never catches on.
  15. What do you guys do to settle a load of powder? When I use stick powder like Varget in a bottleneck cartridge " 308" that there are times when, even though I am using a long tube on my powder funnel and all the same brand of case I don't have enough room for all the powder. I'd have to check, but I think I drop 37 gr. of varget out of the powder measure into the case. After tapping the case on the bench top a dozen of so time almost the whole inside if the neck is showing. This is a butt pain, it breaks my concentration, and it slows me down. What do you guys do in a case like this?

    WWB and WM

    First time I've been in a WM in a while to do any shopping. Strolled through gunz n ammo. Good to great selection of WWB. I was forced to buy a 150 value pack of 124 9mm for $27 and change. As a side note, I haven't bought any Win ammo in 10 years (and I couldn't tell you why) Across the brands on the shelf, 9mm target ammo seems to be hovering around $10- $11 / 50 round box
  17. Looking to pick up 1000 rounds of brass 5.56, since that is the only caliber i dont stock. What would be the best place to get it. All the local store prices are kinda crappy. I also need to pick up more 00 buck for my shotgun. And its almost $1 a round everywhere i have looked. Is that even right?
  18. Ive bought and shot probably 7-8000 rounds of Freedom Munitions before... This is my first time trying their "American Steel" line, I purchased it "New" not reman... So Im a bit saddened to see this...
  19. Anyone have a 3d printer, and have you tried printing one of these parts? It's to keep primers from jumping out of the ram, so you don't have to keep the primer attachment on the ram, if you prime off the press. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1972400

    sorting brass

    Ok so I been sorting out this bucket of brass I have and what I have been sorting is 38 Spl, 40 Cal, 10MM, 9mm, 45 cal and 380 calibers. Are there any of these that I am wasting my time sorting. If there is a caliber that folks don't reload there is no sense in saving the brass. I have no clue what people reload so any input would be greatly appreciated. Bersaguy
  21. Well the sorting is done and the 5 gallon bucket is empty. Now the counting and bagging begins. I'm sure it will be as boring as the sorting was but it at least gave me something to do which is about what the counting will do. If I don't get any one interested in the 38 Spl brass I'm not going to count it and bag it till someone speaks up wanting it. No sense in wasting the bags till it has a new home. I was not aware that the 38 Specials were so popular till I started sorting the brass.........................
  22. Had been having problems with static electricity, in my funnel with CFE powder. Tried different things/suggestions, some helped for a while, always returned. Got to prowling on the 'net, & found an aluminum funnel that is static free. It's also caliber specific ( only fits one caliber). I ordered one for my 9MM, it works like a charm....no more static, plus, it sits on the mouth of the case, don't have to hold it up. Ordered from Brownells, about $12 = S/H. Worth it. Some of you guys may already be aware of this , but this is for some of the newbees, that may be having the same issue.
  23. Any cast bullet guys try Trailboss for 45/70? I recently picked up an H&R that I want to play with. Bought some Missouri 300 gr. cast that I'd like to make some plinking loads with. Any past experience on such?
  24. Found one orange tipped round in a bag of 30 Carbine ammo that I bought @ an auction a few months ago . Just got it into the daylight this (Sunday) afternoon . Any one know what it designates ? I don't have a Carbine but now have some to trade or shoot. Thanks !
  25. Looking for a little 'baseline' info. I am not 'new' to reloading, but something I thought would be a walk in the park now has me seeking advice. I picked up a boat-load of German (MEN) 7.62 which has proven reliable in my FAL. I've been chasing the brass around for a while now and figured I'd re-load some. Got another deal on Hornady 155 gn BTHP from Midway, and I was enthusiastic about this particular bullet as it has a cannalure exactly where it should be and these are destined for the FAL, a good solid crimp seems prudent... and it was really inexpensive. Looked up some load data for 155 gr bullets to select a powder and settled on Hodgdon BL-C (2). Hodgdon data recommends a 45 gr starting load with a maximum of 48 gr. Now it gets interesting. Brass was de-capped full length re-sized using a Lee .308 Winchester die, and tumbled for a day. MEN does not appear to stake in primers so I did not need to mess with primer pockets. I seated Winchester WLR Standard Large Rifle primers. I dropped my first charge in the case (45 gr) and it was REALLY close to the neck. Puzzled, I threw a 48 gr charge and put this in a second case. This was well into the neck of the case... there is no way this is gonna work! I checked calibration on my digital scale and it's perfect. I did a little looking around on the internet and discovered that 7.62 brass is 'typically' thicker and may have a heaver 'web' than .308. I have not attempted to do a case volume measurement, I've never messed with this before. I am assuming (and you know what that means) the MEN cases are markedly smaller internally than the Winchester brass used to produce the Hodgdon data. From what I am 'observing, it looks to me like 45 grs is going to be about max without compressing, and there is no way I want to start compressing a ball powder! With bullet at the cannalure, LOA will be exactly 2.80 inches. So the question here, is how far back should I go to select a 'starting' charge. My gut is telling me maybe 42 gr, and work up in half grs from there. Any thoughts??
