Today we talk about tyrants, correct some stuff, and talk about guns!
To all who have followed me! I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has followed me here and on YouTube, to the folks who have prayed for my speedy recovery, to the folks who reached out and checked on me. You are the people who make this world a better place, my […]
Anyone that has ever watched videos on YouTube has been relentlessly and continuously instructed to “be sure to like, share, subscribe, hit that notification bell, and comment down below…” We hear it so often that it is often just ignored, but did you know that you can do most of those things here on The […]
One of the most frustrating parts of reloading is when the rim tears off a case, leaving the case stuck in the sizing die. When it happens, this problem is usually attributed to inadequate lubrication of the case. I have used a number of case lube products for sizing brass over the years, but recently […]
I created the Headspace site (https://headspace.thereloadersnetwork.com) several months ago as a place for our community to interact. You will find a link to that site in the menu under the Community heading. We have not done much advertising of the site yet, and you’ll likely see some more advertising soon, but I wanted to take […]
Next week I will be attending SHOT Show in Las Vegas, NV. For those unaware, SHOT stands for Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoors Trade, and it is a massive annual industry trade show. There are multiple acres of exhibit space, and thousands of exhibitors. I am attending to spread the word about our community here at […]
A Cowboy From Chicago!?
Today, we talk about a few of our favorite knives.
Some news, some resolutions, and some what we did with guns!
If you recall my last article, I had too much expansion of a HP due to the softness, due to the low BHN of of the boolit metal I used. The Penta over-expanded and came right to the edge of losing its weight from the soft lead shearing off the edges of the mushroom. This […]
Today, Jason and I (taco) go and do some rabbit hunting without any guns--instead we hunt with a hawk with Mark Housekeeper from Magholder.com
I took the AKV that Santa brought me out for a spin today. The initial sighting in resulted in some keyholes, but I took off the brake and reinstalled it and no more issues. I’m going to put a few thousand rounds through it over the next couple weeks and then do a review. Let me […]
About Today’s Volunteers . . . Pictured above are todays test subjects, the .45ACP stuffed with a 212 grain Poly Coated Penta Hollow Point. Cases loaded with CCI-LPP’s and charged with 4.9 grains of TiteGroup. In the Chrono test they averaged 891 FPS and had respectable ES and SD numbers as you will see later […]
If you haven't yet, I would like to invite and encourage you to join the conversation on Discord.
Last week I came across an interesting video about using a drill motor and a home made jig to make Hollow Point Cast projectiles out of your solid casts you already have. This way, you don’t need an expensive HP mould to get into loading and testing the HP Cast. This is the video I […]
Welcome back, reloaders! Let’s get down too it. I was browsing through Brownells website the other day and decided to try out the famous Forster Micrometer Seating dies and do a review. I’ve heard a lot of hype around Micrometer dies in general and especially this one. If you follow any of […]
I took the new 357 Remington Maximum Encore to range today with mixed results. I shot H110 powder under.. 180 XTPs at 2.060″ reached 2128 fps 180 HCFPs at 2.245″ reached 2103 fps 200 FTXs at 2.35″ reached 2056 fps The charge weight for the XTPs was 22-23gr, for the HCFPs it was 23-24 gr, […]
Back in October I put together some light for caliber loads in 9mm with 90gr Hornady XTP bullets and Titegroup powder. My top load of 4.9gr of Titegroup averaged 1416fps. It was discussed at the time about seeing what kind of expansion I was getting, and today was the day.
The Lyman 358311 RN description: 358311 Standard bullet for revolvers using .38 S. & W. Special and .38 Colt Special Cartridge. These two wide bands are strong and hold the rifling well. Case should be slightly crimped in bevel groove. (PlainBase, RoundNose, 158gr. – Top Punch is 311) The Abused Mould This is the shape […]
Anyone else doing some shooting today?
Dear Reloader’s Network, Hello, and welcome to my first attempt at an article ever. My name is Norton’s Ammo Bench, and I thought that the best way to get me feet wet in this new arena was for me to introduce myself and give you an idea of what I’m about. My future posts will be […]
We finally get Stan back on the show as we discuss some news, what we did with guns, and some pew pew guns.
Back in June 2019, a new internal ballistics simulation program became available to the reloading community, it is known as Gordons Reloading Tool (GRT). It was announced on TRN by Marcus of Wiederlader TV in the TRN post just below this paragraph. I had been using a similar program known as QuickLoad, but was very […]
A few gift ideas for the gun guy...
