Hi all just looking some advice from you reloading experts. From my previous posts you probably no I'm new to reloading. So I have just finished reloading my first few rounds of ammunition for my rifle. Below is the stages that I took. If anyone could take a look and see if I have done something stupid please let me know.
1 - Inspected the brass (PPU Once fired) and deprived the primer.
2 - Resized the neck
3 - Cleaned the primer pocket
4 - Chambered the edges of the brass both inside and out
5 - Another visual inspection of the brass
6 - Primed the new primer
7 - Charged the case with Powder ( VihtaVuori N135) I loaded 5 at 26.5 grains and 5 at 27grains
8 - I then seated the bullet ( Hornaday A-Max 52 GR BT A-Max ) the bullet was seated to 58.40mm give or take a few hundreds of a mm in each cartridge.
9 - Final inspection, record loads etc
I would appreciate if you could point out anything that I have done wrong. Two more questions.
1 - On my Die set it gives me the Maximum Overall Length, I have kept my overall length below this, is it a case of altering the length to find out what works best in your rifle?
2 - When I was measuring the powder I was checking the amount of powder in the case 3 times each time I weighted it there was slight differences for example 26.5 , 26.4 , 26.6 would the 0.1 of a grain have an effect on the cartridge.
many thanks for talking the time to read the post and any feedback is greatly appreciated.
