Re: Primer compatability

IMHO, the change in primers wont cause you any catastrophic problems.

Re: Issue with forming 300 BLK from 223

Not meaning to call CW out, but I only use RCBS dies. If I try to push a 223 case through the 300BO die, it crushes the case and makes it unusable. I am also not a fortune teller......but I am leaning toward RCBS coming back with a response that says their dies are for "resizing" cases not "forming"...

Re: Issue with forming 300 BLK from 223

Honestly, I could not tell you the length that I trim to as it has been a while since I have formed cases. I use a "jig" as well and the only adjustment I have is the length. I can loosen the screw that holds the jig in the saw and slide it either way to make the cases longer or shorter. I would try...

Re: Issue with forming 300 BLK from 223

What is your OAL before forming? Looks like your case may be too long before you form and it is hitting the mouth before you get a full length size on your case. I am in agreement, I think your case length before forming is too long. After all they do stretch out a little during forming. As far as ...

Re: Subsonic desintegrating bullets

This link is to 110gr "Sinterfire" projectiles. When striking some type of object they desintergrate into dust I guess. https://americanreloading.com/en/30-caliber-308/2436-308-110gr-frangible-sinterfire-250ct.html Anyway, they are a lightweight but in a bolt you could get the velocity down.....woul...

Re: Speer Gold Dot 150 BLK

Before I was recently prohibited from shooting, I had tried some Shooters World Socom with the 150gn Gold Dot. The last load I took and fired at the range seemed a little mild, no pressure signs in my 16" AR and shot pretty well. Definitely a load I will revisit at first chance when the shooting pro...

Re: Neck Reamer?

I have to apologize as I should know not to "post when your toast". I had neck surgery Thursday and am under medication, so disregard any load data I may post.... :lol: If I misunderstood your post Condor, I again apologize. I thought you were talking about the necks being too thick after conversion...

Re: Neck Reamer?

The best way to save time is to use only brass that is on the "good" brass list. It is the "sticky" at the top of the Handloading section. I have not a reamer and don't anticipate getting one. In converting 223/556 brass down to 300BO I sort it as to whether it is on the good list or bad list. If th...
