Re: Impressed with the 300 BLK

Ive tested the 110 grain nosler and it did the same violent expansion into water jugs.. mushroomed all the way back to essentially the base of the bullet and gave all her energy. I kind of wish they would do something with those 110s like they do with the sst. if Nosler or Hornady gave the bullet a ...

Re: RCBS FL Sizing Dies

Howdy guys! I have been having an issue with my expander ball also. I have now broken 3 expander balls from my RCBS full length dies. I thought I had enough lube and had prepared my brass correctly, but the expander balls would tear off the rods and get stuck inside my brass. when you look at the ro...

Re: Let's see your workbench / reloading bench / shooting areas!

I'm a fairly new reloader but still try to construct rounds with quality in mind. my set up isn't the best but I've never had a problem with any of my 300 blackout rounds. I have also loaded .223, 6.8 spc and .308. The only thing that I really have going for me is my 4 place analytical balance... I ...

Re: Nosler 110g Varmageddon Bullets.

I weighed my whole box of 110s and 125s... The weight spread is kind of big (I have a 4 place analytical balance). http://i1260.photobucket.com/albums/ii568/dark_nephi/IMG_9473_zps91151c7a.jpg http://i1260.photobucket.com/albums/ii568/dark_nephi/Mobile%20Uploads/EB4F9967-EBFE-4B18-83D7-A5CC449CD439_...

Re: Hunting load question

I did a ballistic test on the 150gr Remington accu-tip. I lined up 4 jugs of water(I got the jugs from work... They were these thick plastic jugs used for sodium thiosulfate). Bullet passed through 3 jugs and expanded pretty good. I think 150s will expand at 100 yards and probably even farther. Ther...
