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 Range SquirrelI owned a […]
After looking at all of the powder tricklers on the market (except the Lyman Brass Smith that wasn't released yet) I settled on the RCBS Powder Trickler 2. This was because it was quality built, very sturdy, weighty, adjustable height, extendable tube and threaded tube.
Today I do a quick look at the Hornady Headspace Comparator

Hello to The Reloaders Network! BigE here! I thought I would try something different in my 308 target rifle. It started as a Savage 11VT that was found to be a little unsafe with the original barrel (short throat with rifling at 0.307″ would pop primers on factory loads occasionally and was almost always a […]
Before Christmas my wife went into Academy to buy me a couple boxes of bullets as stocking stuffers, she is an encourager of my endeavors. She knew I load and shoot 9mm, and knew I had trays of Hornady bullets over my bench, but not what weights. The retail droid at Academy pointed her to […]

Today I present part two in my series on getting started reloading: “Picking the needed equipment”. Hopefully you already read part one and decided to continue. In everything we do let us remember to do things safely and carefully. My guidelines here are to help you pick the needed equipment to reload your own ammunition […]

Just shooting two of my favorite bolt action military surplus rifles. The M1903 Springfield manufactured by Rock Island Arsenal and the Mauser K98k ( s/243 mfg 1937) refurbished by Yugoslavia. I was shooting Greek HXP in 30-06 and some different 8mm Mauser ammo that I had. The 8mm Mauser handloads were Hornady 8mm (323) 150gr. […]
Looks like it’s time for another post. Today’s topic is the Hornady 68g BTHP Match Bullet loaded with Ramshot TAC. This powder has been on my radar for some time, but I have never seen it locally. Recently I ordered a rather large powder order (12lbs) from Graf’s and made sure to include it. My […]
