Re: 5744 Loads

A Merrill Martin did a series of articles in Precision Shooting magazine quite some time ago where he used 0.060" poly wads with smokeless powders and soft plain base bullets. He was working to get the lube grooves to collapse and extrude lube out of the groove to the surface of the barrel which he ...

Handloader magazine

Starting in Jan. 1979 through today (Dec. 2013). 16 Handloader binders, Feb. 2011 through today are not in binders. Am missing June 2012 issue. A total of 209 issues, over 34-years. Counting the binders, I'm guessing I have about $1200 invested.
So...let's say $500.

Re: Hand Primer

Kinda spendy but the Sinclair version is a good one. You can really feel the primer as it progresses its way into the hole. And you secure the case prior to seating the primer so it takes a tad longer to secure and release each case but the case doesn't move while you are inserting the primer. Not s...

Re: GG vs PP for 1000 yd BPCTR shooting?

Hi Macca, Dumb question time....Is that two patches at the same time on the bristle brush or two passes, each time with a fresh patch? The front two bands on my PJ bullets (16:1) are smaller dia. that the rest, so I can seat bullet out to touching the rifling and gain some powder capacity. My mv is ...

Re: GG vs PP for 1000 yd BPCTR shooting?

Brent, What does SSSRC stand for? Grease groove bullets. So called armory patches, water soluble oil (NAPA) 1 part per 6 parts water, squished very hard to squeeze out all the excess water. Photo is some test groups that were fired in July 2011. Finger seated bullets, no neck tension, they can be ro...

Re: GG vs PP for 1000 yd BPCTR shooting?

I use this forum and others like it as a source of information and suggestions for BPCR shooting. A recent example is the suggestion of using two wet patches followed by a dry after each shot. My approach before that was a single wet patch and chamber mop between shots. Yesterday I tried the 3-patch...

Re: vertical stringing

If the picture sticks to this post, you'll see my version of weather reports. The LH group is getting closer. This is 200 meters off a front rest and rear sand bag on the bench, iron sights. I guess the question for me is would neck turning help reduce some of the randomness and is this an example o...

Re: vertical stringing

Dan, Any idea roughly what % of competitive BPCR shooters turn their case necks? I have the Forester turner for larger cases but before I use it I should learn what my chamber ID is where the case neck area will chambered. The chambering is .40-70 SS and I use a PJ Money bullet weighing 418-grains i...

Re: NEED to full-length size before fireforming?

I used a Forester trimmer for years but it seemed as if the cases varied in length when I was done and the mouths sometimes seemed to be "beveled" and not square to the center line axis. I bought a L. E. Wilson unit and the Sinclair base. The mouths came out square and the lengths were more uniform....

Overactive imagination?

After annealing my batch of (100) 405 Winch. cases that are used in a C, Sharps .40-70 SS, I set out to prep the cases for loading. As I passed them into the Lyman M-die to ever so slightly expand the case mouth, I found one case where the die (by feel on the press) didn't change the mouth opening. ...

Re: Forming Cases - .30-40 Krag to .40-70ss

And...the 405 Winch cases are longer than the .30-40 K's so you can optimize case length to best fit your chamber using the 405's.

Which primer?

This will appear to be a rather dumb request considering how much this subject may have been discussed off and on over the past few years here. I have a C. Sharps Model 74 chambered in 40-70 SS. The bullet is a Paul Jones Money weighing about 416-grains in 16:1. Cases are Hornady 405 Winch. Powder i...

MC,

Do you use poly or veggie/card wads?

I'll give your "sequence of operations" a try.
