This forum rocks!! I feel MUCH better now about my prospects for my 300 Blackout rifle!
I picked up the Harbor Freight saw today, and just sent a payment to VZ58 for one of his jigs. I also ordered the Lee Factory Crimp die as well as the LE Wilson Case Length Headspace Gauge. My friend has a single stage and progressive stage press, brass cleaner and powder measure. I believe he has the chamfer and debur tool and case trimmer as well. I am not sure about a primer pocket swager though.
Is there a special die you need for the case trimmer? I talked to a guy at a local gun store who reloads 300 Whisper and he told me I would need to pick up a Redding Trim Die so I ordered this from MidwayUSA: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/757107 ... n-fireball
Is this used in the case trimmer? It is on backorder so I can cancel the order if it is unnecessary. It was $60 so I would just as soon skip it if it isnt really needed. The demonstrations I have seen use some hand crank looking thing that holds 1 piece of brass and is turned manually to shave off the end of the case mouth. Does the trim die go in that or do they use a generic .30 caliber piece?
What kind of powders are most commonly used for 300 Blackout?
Is there a manual or book anybody can recommend? I am not afraid to do my homework and I will be working with my friend who has a lot of reloading experience though not for 300 Blackout.
Thank again for all the help! This forum kicks A!
