Re: Just getting into reloading. Do i have everything I need?

One thing that jumps out at me right away is you will want to upgrade to a better size die than Lee. I started there first but quickly found from experience and reading hear that The Lee has problems converting 223 cases consistently. I use an RCBS Calipers. Bullet puller. Case lube. I also did not ...

Milestones in reloading

Thank you Industry for making the 300BLK ammunition so expensive. You forced me to start reloading 2.5 yrs ago. It is a fantastic endeavor and I really enjoy it. I was quickly adding up some of my reloading expenses for the last couple of years. I mainly shoot suppressed and smelt, cast, coat, conve...

Re: Set me straight!

I've shot 3K+ HTC and PC bullets through my 8" SBR/Chaotic and I've noticed no leading in the barrel but there is lead on the muzzle. I will take pictures next time I clean.

My Chaotic, which is not user serviceable, has gained almost 2oz since I've started shooting the HTC and PC bullets.

But first... get out of the humid garage. :)

Re: Hate to ask.. but can someone tell me the steps for converting 5.56 to 300blk? Everyones is diff.

I've made about 5000 cases in the last two years. I dream of buying new or converted cases, but then I spend the money on primers and powder. :) 1. Collect used American made brass off the ground at range. 2. Chop cases to 1.358" with Harbor Freight mini saw and jig. 3. Wash 30 mins in Frankfort Ars...

Re: How far can you shoot subs?

I took my SBR (8" Seekins SBR, PA red dot out, Chaotic suppressor, 220 grain Leatherhead loads) to the 500 yard range yesterday for the first time. I was not expecting to hit anything but I rang the 24" plate at 300 yards on the second try. Then I continued to ring steel almost every shot. I even hi...

Yup. The old cases were shorter than the min. on the Sheridan gauge. The replacement ammo's cases were in spec. I tested 1 box of 4. They shot fine.
