replacing powder during reloading


Well-Known Member
Hi Guys

Just a quick stupid question. I filled a load of .260 brass with reloader 17 and then realised I was about 10 projectiles short. Due to supply issues, I have moved from Sierra TMK to Lapua Scenar 139's and I am going to use Vit N550.

So my question is, is it safe to just empty out the reloader and refill with the Vit or do I need to clean out the brass again?

If your OCD is bad just blow it out with an air duster once you have knocked it a few times

The only place the kernels seem to stick is in the flash hole. Just make sure you can see the shiny underside of the primer anvil though the hole and keep tapping until you do.
