Today we talk bullet casting with Al Nelson from NOE Bullet Moulds
TC Encore SSK 45-70 with IMR-3031 Well guys, I took the Encore out for a spin, and on the recommendation of Rebel and Georgiaboy44 I got a couple pounds of IMR3031 to try. QuickLOAD predicted no pressure concerns for an Encore that theoretically could be rechambered to 458WinMag, so I did a ladder from 49.3 […]
Episode 51 is Live! Today we talk a bit more about building AR15's and share some news.
One of the corrective actions you can take it to accurately measure and adjust your headspace to help in reliable ignition, accuracy and optimal brass life. Due to the break open design and the inherent flex in the action when fired with more flex in higher pressure rounds, you cannot merely take a rimless bottleneck cartridge or even rimmed bottleneck cartridge and measure it as you would a bolt action gun.
Episode 50 is Live! Today we talk a bit more about the g42 as well as the g48 and turning the g48 into a "slimmed g19."
Last summer, Svarog Bullet Mold company out of Russia reached out to me and asked if I would review their new slug mold called the Botfly. I’ve always been impressed with the quality and ease of use with the Svarog’s mold, so I jumped at the opportunity. When the mold came in, I jumped on […]
Today, A "Happy Valley" Cop Joins Us For A Discussion
Welcome back to the ballistic gel tests series as I dive into the Barnes 127 LRX. I had been searching for multiple different types of bullets that I could use in .264 that was non-lead. Ultimately, so I could hunt in states that only allowed specific types of ammunition. With so many choices, I decided […]
Today we interview Kenn Blanchard from the "Black Man With A Gun" podcast.
Back when I first started reloading, my first trip to the range with my 9mm reloads, I had a squib load, a muffled poof and I had lodged a bullet about a half inch into the barrel. Fortunately I had the presence of mind to not pull the trigger again as that would have been […]
We are now offering roller handles for the Lee Automatic Processing Press, or APP! These ergonomic roller handles enable you to upgrade the stock grip on your Lee APP. There are two available handle styles: one with finger grooves, and one without the finger grooves. The handle with the finger grooves is a design by […]
For a while I have been considering an addition to my Lee Breechlock Challenger single station press to speed up my production rate. I’m not such a high volume shooter to justify a Dillon or Hornady AP, but when club matches start back up I will put a lot of lead downrange in a short […]

Friday, the fourth and final day of SHOT Show. Many of the attendees have already left town. It’s a great opportunity to tie up any loose ends, say goodbye to a few people, and then head back home. I stopped by the Sierra booth to see what they had on display. For those unaware, Sierra […]

Day 3 of SHOT Show - powder dispensers, revolvers, and a whole lot more
Still Under Quarantine...
Day 2 of SHOT Show 202 started out rough, but it ended well. Check out the highlights.
Lots of people desire to go to SHOT Show because they want to see all of the great new products, but I have found that the best part of SHOT is the people that you meet, and that you reconnect with as well. That said, there are certainly plenty of products on display as well. Here are some of the highlights of my first day at SHOT Show 2020.
This post doesn’t have a conclusion, at least not yet. I just want to share some experimenting with Satterlee load development. With that out of the way, my current recipe for 223 is a 62gr load I put together a couple years ago when I was starting out using the tried and true ladder load […]

Today we are joined by Evan from the Full.Lead.Taco channel & Eldon in a quest to keep you safely occupied while under quarantine.
