  1. Reloading
    So I have been reloading .308 Win for a while now and want to work up a low recoil round for my father( he has had multiple shoulder surgeries and can't take the recoil to well.). I am planning on using 125 gr bullets. The only powders I have right now are 4064 and unique. I would like to stick...

    I am planing on starting to reload 9mm plinking loads for a Glock 19. I will be using small pistol primers and 115 grain plated bullets from Xtreme Bullets. Can anyone recommend a good powder for 9mm. I already have Alliant Unique if that will work. Thanks in advance, Dave
  3. Reloading
    I recently purchased a glock 34 gen 4 and took it to the range today. I brought 2 boxes of federal 115g and about 400 rounds of my reloads. The factory ammo worked perfectly (i love this gun) my ammo not so good. I was experiencing, failure to eject, failure to feed and stove piped a few times...

    I was wondering how many of you guys felt about using factory reloads or even cheaper ammo such as Tula/Silver Bear or aluminum or steel cased ammo in your firearms. Pros/ Cons would be appreciated. Looking to save money at range but not looking to damage any of my guns

    Okay...here we go. My second attempt at reloading (and MANY THANKS to all the members who saved me from myself on my first attempt) goes like this: Once fired brass from my Enfield P-14; Winchester large rifle primers; Lee Hand Press Kit; 150 gr. jacketed bullet (no name on it; weighed on my...

    Just finished my first reloads: .303 British 150 gr. jacketed (see pic), over 16 grains of Alliant 2400, in brass fire-formed in my Enfield P-14. They are 3.075 inches long (the maximum overall length as specified in my Lee Reloading manual as well on the instruction sheet included with the Lee...
  10. Firearm Ban & Recent Events
    Been traveling through major cities in South Carolina and North Carolina. Have stopped at many LGS along the way. Pretty sad state of affairs and eerie would describe the feeling. No magazines. Few sporting rifles meaning 1 to 3 per store Pathetic stocks of milsurp and no garands. Minimal...

  12. Reloading
    I went to Calverton last Sunday with the first batch of reloads. .223 75 gr. HPBT over Varget 23 - 25 gr. by 0.5 gr increments. Well they went bang, a good start. I was surprised by the different feel of the rifle from the varying charges. The 23's were soft and the 25's had quite a bit more...
