    Honestly, it's supreme bullshizen...

    O rings for floating alignment...jeez some guys just will never understand anything.
    Volume measuring with powder omg clueless.
    Ahhh I give up with these BR types, truly a waste of time.
    Seems that competition guys need all this mental masturbation so that they feel they can compete, such a shame.

    Where to start!!!!!

    So after you have done everything that is in the 4th response. When do you get time to shoot?

    This is the problem with asking an 'expert'.

    The trouble with all this BS minutiae is that people can no longer see what is really required and what is true scheiße it just perpetuates the myths and leads poor guys down expensive unnecessary alleys.


    Here is a quote that should open eyes;
    I want to chime in, but it takes me four hours to load a set of twenty....explaining it longer yet. Donovan nailed the process overview. study this website like was suggested. learn who to believe also.
    If that does not say it all for you I do not know what will.
    Reloading is not a question of faith. Faith is not a pass on 'understanding'.

    I have a question:
    why neck turn, chamfer THEN FL resize and then have to neck turn and chamfer again?!
    what possible purpose can that serve?

    and he also neck turns then chamfers and reverses the process for the second time...

    interesting.
    i have little enough time to shoot let alone spend four hours on 20 rounds. That is two trips out!!



    "I. Starting Brass Prep:

    - Inspect brass for defects (splits, crinch, voids, contricity)
    - Expand the neck to my tuner mandrel (K&M Expander)
    - Neck Turn (K&M and a Stiller)
    - Chamfer the neck (Sinclair)
    - Uniform the primer pocket depth (Sinclair)
    - Uniform flash-hole (Index drill bit set)
    - Expand for false-shoulder (K&M Expander)
    - Fire-form (twice for me)
    - Ultra-sonic clean (Hornady)
    - Anneal (home made)
    - F/L Resize <> always/every time (Custom dies w/bushings)
    - Trim necks to length (RCBS)
    - Chamfer (Sinclair)
    - 2nd Neck-turning <> final cleanup (Stillar)
    - Segregate by volume <> cue out all culprits (I use ball powder, not water)
    - "Match Set" complete <> Use only for Matches <> Kept in same cycle"

    Amazing, anyone thinking of taking up reloading would have second thoughts after reading that, it must be an absolute nightmare for that guy to go shooting in a gusting cross wind, that is if he can bear to fire his "perfect rounds", they really belong in a display cabinet. atb Tim

    Fair enough doing all this but then he shoots himself in the foot by volume segregating using a ball powder where H20 will fill more evenly and to capacity

    What we can take from all this is, if you enjoy your reloading why not do as much as possible even if its not all needed for your chosen sport/discipline.

    I guess im luckey as i carry a gun every day of the week so my shiooting time is a lot longer than most, my reloading regme is how ever the same for both my competition shooting and also my job shooting.

    I enjoy my reloading more than ever now days and put in to it as much as i can/want/needed for said application.

    I dont like tinkering with cars, gardens, golf, machines but ill quite happily tinker with my reloading.

    because hes using brass to make fit his custom chamber,hence the false shoulder remark,long winded yes but if hes happy what the problem

    Hi
    dont take this the wrong way but every time there is a thread on realoding other than throwing it in with a spoon you seem to get very very aggressive with your replies,if your happy with what you do thats fine but others may want perfection with there reloads,to shoot 1000 yards or even 300 yards one does need to get the best out of there reloaded ammo.sloppy workmanship produces sloppy products
