Re: How do I stop breaking Dillon swage rods?

Wow it's been a while since that post. I got out of the brass game but the best rods I used were from fast and friendly. Much better quality than Dillon and lasted much longer. I found my press needed repairs from Dillon to fix the linkage issue but I stopped before I could send it off to Dillon fo...

Re: How do I stop breaking Dillon swage rods?

I run a Lee Decapper in station 1, swage on 2, size and cut on 5, then expand with a RCBS blackout die with the pin removed. I do everything in one pass. So far I don't know if any other presses that can do it all in one pass unless you can fit the RT1500 and still use 3 other stations. I'll be on ...

Re: .277 Wolverine Info

Hornady is making brass now too. I wonder if loaded ammo and maybe even some loading data isn't too far behind.

277 is a fun cartridge. I've found it to be surprisingly accurate from my 12.5" AR. There are some good bullets for it too. It looks like pretty much anything meant for the 6.8 SPC will work pretty well in the Wolverine.

Re: .277 Wolverine Info

Hornady is making Wolverine brass now. Does this mean factory ammo is on the horizon?

Re: Speer Gold Dot 150 BLK

I'm hoping to see a heavier version for this bullet for subsonic use. Can Speer pull it off? Can they make a 190ish grain bullet that expands at low velocity?

Re: Hornady 300BLK 190gr Sub-X in Gel

Okay. Two more through glass and into gel covered with light clothing. One bullet went about 9 inches and came out the side of the block. The bullet was found probably 6 inches away. That bullet now weighs 153.5 grains and mushroomed well. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180225/08c15ac54ebb6f73e7...

Re: Hornady 300BLK 190gr Sub-X in Gel

Wait to see what they actually lose. Yeah. Let's hold off until we have some user feedback with short barrels. I've found Hornady to be pretty good with true advertising. Using real guns for velocity results as opposed to using a universal receiver. Or listing their ammo at high velocity but hiding...
