  1. reloading the 303-270

    Australian Hunting
    Can someone point me in the right direction please. Around the start of winter here in Australia I am planing camping and going shooting and taking the old 303-270 out. I got some reloads done for it years ago and also put a scope on it and it shot groups within 2inchs so that was good enough...
  2. Technical Explanation For Difficult Shell Extraction?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I am relatively new to reloading long range .308 and .338 Lapua. I had a tough time extracting shells after firing and found it was because of lube on the reloaded cartridges. After cleaning cartridges and chamber, shells extracted easily. Being a curious engineer type, does anyone have a...
  3. Handloading Software

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    I have a question for everyone. I'm currently working for a company that's developed a handloading software that we'll be promoting shortly (this is not an ad btw) and before we do I'd like to ask you, what do you look for when you buy a program like this?

  5. Reloading dies for Ar-15

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    I bought an AR-15 and am in the market for dies. I just want some opinions on whether to by small base dies or just the regular full length dies. How many loads can I expect out of brass when sizing with small base dies as opposed to full length and is it necessary to use a small base die?
  6. Reloaded Brass Not Ejecting, need some help

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    Started back reloading after 20 years and I'm missing something here. My Mini 14 6.8mm shoots fine all day long with factory ammo and factory new brass I reloaded but brass that has been previously shot through the rifle before reloading often doesn't eject or stovepipes (about 1 shot in 3...
  7. Hornady FTX in 38 special?

    Handgun Cartridges
    Was reading the Hornady 8th edition for the FTX 140 grain. It states that I need to trim the casing down to 1.25. Instead of trimming can I use 38 special brass. The brass on the 38 is 1.144. So there is a 0.106 differance. Being very new to reloading I thought I would get some advice from...
