  1. I'm getting ready to start reloading 357mag for a carbine rifle. I've got some Magnus 158gr JSP's (J-119) and I'll be using H110. Hodgdon's data shows that with a Hornady 158gr XTP the starting load is 15gr and max is 16.7 at COL of 1.580. I think I'll follow this being that it's the closest data to the Magnus bullet I can find. Does anyone load Magnus bullets? All advice welcome. Thanks. Her's a pic of the XTP and the Magnus J-119.

    Reloading Aluminum Case

    I recently received some empty aluminum 9mm cases in a batch of misc. brass. I don't see why these can't be reloaded, but I've personally never heard of anyone actually doing it. Anyone have experience or potential issues I should be aware of? Thanks in advance. I did a brief search on this but came up empty. My apologies if it's already been discussed.
  3. Hi guys, does anyone reload for AR pistol 5.56? I am looking something with as little muzzle flash as possible. I use IMR-4895 and it is pretty bright out of 10.5 inch barrel. Any comments appreciated. Thanks Mac
  4. Today I stopped by Walmart in need of 30-06 as I don’t want to break into my stash of HXP M2 ball held in reserve to feed the Garand. They have Federal Power-Shock 150 gr SP for $11.97/box. Cheapest they sell so that’s what I wanted. Looked it up later to see what I bought and it appears Federal is running a $5 per box rebate. Score. It might take three months to get that $10 back but when it’s all said and done that’s a mighty fine price for ammo. I’m cheap like that.

    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

    338 Federal

    Hello everyone. recently I have been looking at the 338 Federal. I am curious if anyone has any experience with this round. From the outside looking in it looks good? Blessings Doug

    M&P Sport II owners

    Hi all, I have shot mine very little, but need to buy some ammo. Is there a particular off the shelf .223/.556 that seems to be more accurate? Thanks AJ
  8. hey guys, I recently ran across a rare find ( I guess). Found 420 rounds of 5.56 ball ammunition still in bandoliers with the stripper clips and quick loaders all in the original green military steel ammo can. the bandoliers have a date of Mar 1971 (iirc). Anybody have any insight on if its safe to shoot? it looks like any other ammo ive ever seen but the brass is tarnished. A193 is the nomenclature of the ammo I believe. What would it be worth? as I no longer have an AR.
  9. I plan to use my Marlin 336 this year for whitetail. My shots won’t be over 50 yards max. Having never hunted with a 30-30 what ammo have you had the best luck with?
  10. Purchased the software about a year ago. Then realized ‘garbage in=garbage out’ so I then purchased a Pro Chrono for velocity measurements. I would like to spend some time with someone who is experienced with the software to learn “tip,tricks and traps” to get me over the initial hump of learning how to use Quickload. I’m a little overwhelmed with what the software can do and I am over analyzing everything. “Analysis Paralysis” I’ve printed out the Quickload manual and read through it several times. I do have many years of reloading behind my belt and recently got back into it after divorce, college, raising family and other life events that shifted my priorities. Could some kind soul allow me to spend an afternoon with them so I can pick their brains and experience? Willing to travel an hour or so and provide pizza and refreshments for your time.
  11. I always check my 9mm's by seeing if they will drop into my pistol barrel plus I'll try to make them as idienticle as factory target ammo but I was thinking of getting a Headspace gauge for easier measuring and saving time. When looking I saw the Hornady Headspace gauge that says its for 9mm in 9x19 AND 9x21 . I may be having a brain fart but the 9x21 case is longer and since the case headspaces on the case mouth , wouldn't that gauge read them differently ? Excuse me if I am wrong or confused. I thought you'd need a different gauge for each of those two rounds .

    5MM Ammo

    Primed hornady brass

    I recently bought some primed 35 whelen brass from A&H Reloading in Nashville out of the bins of brass. Does anyone know what kind of primers are used in the primed hornady brass? Also, do they need to be resized?

    Arisaka type 99

    I have inherited a WWII bring back from my step father who inherited it from his father that brought it back from WWII and would like to shoot it. So I'm looking for a soft load but being a chrome bore it really likes the high velocity ammo. Does anyone have any powder they would recommend for it. I am not looking for recipes as I will work up a load slowly, just looking for powder recommendations. Thanks every!
  15. I saw a photo of the Old Hickory Powder Plant in a Cracker Barrel restaurant here in Memphis. My uncle worked there just before he joined the US Army. At the time he worked there it was operated by DuPont and they were producing Cordite for the British. Cordite was a soft pliable stuff that was extruded. Before it solidified it could be molded like clay. My uncle made a shapely ladies' leg complete with a dainty high heeled shoe from Cordite and gave it to my mother, very racey at the time! When I first saw the leg, about 1943 or so, it was maybe six inches from thigh (blush!) to heel. The last time I saw it, 1985 or so, it had shrunk to about 3 1/2" long, but still perfectly portioned. It varied in color from charcoal gray to translucent amber. At my mother's death in 1998 it went to my oldest sister in Florida. I have no idea of its whereabouts now. I believe Old Hickory's output was for British artillery shells. I don't know if any was produced for small arms ammunition, but the British used Cordite for awhile after that War. My uncle was Maynard Wright and was on the editorial staff of the Nashville Banner then moved to Charleston, WV as an editor for the Charleston Gazette. Bob Wright

    .308 deal

    Not sure if any is left but Midway has surplus .308 at .58 per round. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/109678/military-surplus-austrian-ammunition-762x51mm-nato-146-grain-full-metal-jacket-battle-packs-of-240-12-boxes-of-20
  17. 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?
  18. Reading elsewhere I saw a statement that Tennessee has a special tax on ammo. Since we will soon be moving to Tennessee, should I be bringing a truckload of ammo with me?

    Ammo brass?

    I have a bunch of assorted brass that came from a range here in town that closed up. I have probably almsot two 5 gallon pails of it and I am thinking about sitting down in spare time and going through the pails and seperating out all the different calibers into different cans. Now with that said, are there any calibers that would be wanted more than another for reloading. I figure it will give me something to do this winter when I get bored. I know the 22caliber is junk but just looking to find out what might be the more popular calibers..............
  20. Has anyone tried this ammo ? Dunham's has it on sale today and tomorrow only for $17.99. I need more 22 ammo like I need another hole in my head but, as they say, there's no such thing as having too much ammo
  21. Fair price on 9mm Winchester ammo, plus free shipping if you buy 20 boxes (1000 rounds) https://palmettostatearmory.com/winchester-usa-9mm-nato-124gr-fmj-ammunition-50rds-q4318.html
  22. You just never know what you'll find when you go digging around your ammo stores... I stumbled across an ammo can containing 2 unopened battle packs and 1 opened, but full, battle pack of the 5.56 ammo pictured below. iirc I've had this since the early 1990's. I've not had much success locating it on the interwebs. It's 344 A 86 5.56 Ball M1A3 in 300 round battlepacks. South African maybe? Anyone familiar with this 5.56? Thanks in advance, Jamie

    Casting / Weight vs. Size

    Here's the question. I cast 100 .452 RNFP (Lee Die) 255gr bullets. Because of the high antimony content the bullets averaged out at 222gr. What if any considerations should I take into account for the weight difference? My first thought is that I would stick with 255gr load data as the size of the round is the same thus limiting case capacity. I would assume that velocity would more then likely increase since weight is different, unless the bearing surface of the bullet actually has more of an effect then the overall weight. Anyways, let the speculation begin. Round Details Caliber: 460 Rowland Powders: Accurate #7 / #5 Brass: Starline (New) Primers: Winchester (LP)
