In this video we test the best load that we have found so far with our Thompsin Center Compass in 300 Winchester Magnum.
Seeing how far I can make consistent hits on a 10" steel target with my trusty the 2 1/4" Ruger SP101 and my hand loaded 158 grain Hornady XTP .38 Specials.

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 […]
In this weeks video we turn some Federal brass and test it to see if we achieve smaller groups with our 147 ELD-M COAL test. We use Reloder 26 and duplicate the identical test that we ran with the same lot of brass that was not neck turned. Velocity and group data is shown at 150 yards.
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 […]

Which 45 Colt will go further through the material? Which one will do the most damage using the Hornady 225 gr FTX, the 250 XTP, and the Frontier lead 45, all at 45 Colt pressure level?

In this video we see if we can improve our group sizes by adjusting the bullet seating depth in our Ruger Precision Rifle. The barrel has ~2500 rounds through it and the distance to the land has increased by more than .040".

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 […]
This is a chronograph and clear ballistics test from a short barrel 2in Ruger Alaskan. Then we move to the other end of the spectrum with a 16in barrel, Rossi Lever.

This is a viewer request video wanting to know which of these bullets smoked less.
Hey everyone! Have you ever wondered how much of a difference using fire formed brass will make for your reloads? I set out to find out just how much smaller our groups can get using once-fired brass in my Thompson Center Compass chambered in 5.56 NATO. Originally I intended to use a 75gr ELD bullet […]
Match Grade Machine sent over a Thompson Center Encore Pro Hunter with one of the many custom barrels they make. This one is in 450 Bushmaster. Hunting season is opening up soon and this lethal combination may just put this rifle in your pack and bag you that trophy elk or buck.
Testing out some 38 and 357 loads with Hornady XTP bullets and Titegroup for the 38 and H110 powder for the 357. Shooting SoCalI’m just an average shooter here in sunny Southern California. Most of my shooting is done from the bench at 100 yards for rifles. I reload for accuracy and economy. I want […]
