Re: H&R Handi Rifle in 300blk having trouble firing

One trick owners of the 300 Whisper TC's (parent of the 300 Blackout) did was to cut a recess in the rear of the chamber the size of the .357mag case head. Then they could shoot both 300 W or 357Max brass formed in a 300w die. This gave them a rim that was easier to hold and a cartridge that head pa...

Re: CZ 527 300 BLK

I was just curious. Years ago I toyed with the idea of converting a Mossberg MVP to 300B because of the smaller action. I was saving funds and finding sources for the necessary parts. Then the RARR was announced and the MVP was forgotten. I have been happy with the RARR, but I wished the action were...

Re: CZ 527 300 BLK

How about measuring the difference in bolt throw between the CZ and the RARR? Also, bolt diameter?
Thanks

Re: Annealing 300 BLK brass

Or...don't bother annealing.
I have 300 Blk formed from LC02 .223 military brass that has been loaded 15 times. It was first formed to 300 Whisper, later trimmed and sized to 300 Blk.

Re: need help with cast lead loads

Keep it simple, just seat a bullet into a sized case that has the mouth belled/flaired to keep from shaving the bullet. Keep seating the bullet deeper until the bolt will easily close on the cartridge. Measure for your cartridge overall length. If you separate the lower from the upper, it will be mu...

Re: CTL312-160-2R nose diameter

Anyone have a Lee CTL312-160-2R? If so what is the nose diameter. Has anyone shot this in a 300 blackout AR? I measured a sample that has been laying on my desk for a couple of years. Measured just above the crimp groove- .309". Measured about halfway up the nose its still .309". In my opinion the ...

Re: 30 Mauser Dies For .300BLK Pistol Bullets?

Let me suggest a cheaper and simpler solution. Since you already have a Lee universal expander, try an accessory expander plug from Noe ($6.50) http://noebulletmolds.com/NV/index.php?cPath=88&sort=2a&page=2&osCsid=bsso0otmdg8gjfg0mvkjqda7g1 The Lee universal expanders and powder through expanders ar...

Re: Broke my 300blk lyman E-ZEE trimmer pilot can I cover my 308 one

Years ago before the 300 Blackout was a gleam in a reloader's eye, I cut down a Lee 7.62x39 trimmer pilot to make one for a 300 Whisper. I used a drill press and files.
From experience, I can tell you it's much easier to buy one than to make one.
