Re: Minimum case length?

Also, check those headstamps against the Bad Headstamp Sticky on this board...discard all that are on the bad list, check the mouth wall thickness on any you can't find on that list.

Re: Hornady manual

For 300blk supers in the 110-135gr, I use 300MP or H110. I've used LilGun in the past, but have abandoned that powder.

Re: Hornady manual

I have a bookshelf full of Load Manuals dating back 40 years. I like to reference the Powder Manufacturer Load data along with the Bullet Manufacturer Load data. I then develop a plan for a load ladder. Plenty of research before ever getting to the load bench. The Lyman load manual is a good resourc...

Re: Help needed on a 300BLK reload

So, the round wouldn't fully chamber, the bolt wasn't rotated in place and the "design" prevented the firing pin from striking the primer. That is good because you don't want the round going off on an open bolt.

Re: giving reloaded ammo to a relative

Yep...I give reloaded ammo to close relatives. Just can't sell it. Ammo shortage and component shortages have a few causes..1. Supply chain problems due to Covid 2.

Re: Alliant 300MP and Hornady 125 SSTs

I have load ladders with 300MP and Hornady 125 SSTs from 17.5 to 19.3 grs. COL that worked the best was 2.15.
Very Accurate loads across the ladder, but 18.4 seems to be the sweet spot.
