    If you have a good load/round for 300AAC using true M80 bullets, I’d really be appreciative if you could share. I picked up some NOS M80 147 grain bullets and would like to work a load. I picked up the M80 bullets so I can reload M80 and 300 AAC from the same bullet stock. Also, if you have a...
  2. Reloading
    Just picked up a Bergara BMP 6.5 Creed and wondered if anybody with that particular rifle would mind sharing their favorite load as I've not reloaded this cartridge before. Looking to develop a good LD target and shorter range hunting load. Thanks !
  3. Reloading
    Hello! I'm concerned about my brass and the measurements I'm getting. I understand in bolt guns, you take a brand new never fired brass, size them, load them up and shoot them and the brass will stretch to fire form to the chamber and from there you can bump the shoulder back 2 thousandths. In...
  4. Reloading
    I was hoping the forum could give me a head start on loading the Berger 175 grain OTM to a muzzle velocity of 2600 fps so I don't have to burn a lot of components getting there (hard to find them these days). I'd like to restrict the powder for the load to IMR 4064. Lots of info on the 175...
  5. Ammunition
    Fellas, I have been absent for a while due to a recent move, some related homeownership disasters, and being too busy with work! But winter has come to the frozen TUNDRA with a bang, I have my house squared away (finally) and my new man cave/reloading room set up and ready to run. So it's...

    I have been watching, wishing for this press for some time now. Everywhere I've looked it has been on back order for at least the last 6-8 months. Well, about a month ago I caught them in stock on Brownells and ordered one. Glad I did too as I've noticed they quickly went back to being out of...
  7. Shotguns
    I've been shooting for about 20 years now +/-. Most of which was in the army or federal security so the ammo was always provided. Now that I'm out of both, I need to learn a new skill set so I can keep shooting as much as I would like to with out spending thousands of dollars every few months...
  8. Ammunition
    I've been running through the various reloading threads on this forum and came to the conclusion that IMR 4895 is favored over H4895. Actually, I haven't read one person reloading with Hodgon 4895. Prior to joining the forum, I read several magazine articles suggesting H4895 over IMR. Is this...
  9. Ammunition
    I have owned an SAI M1A for several years, shot it not too often, bought ammo off the shelf. I've fired most everything from .22s to Tank Guns. But I never got close to the bullet making end of things, until now. I got a good deal on a Hornady Auto Progressive (AP) Press, but bare bones. Bought...
  10. Ammunition
    Hey guys, I plan to start loading for my M1D in 30-06 and for an M14 clone in 7.62 NATO that I will soon have... GI1 I am looking for a plinking/target load that is not intended for serious long range shooting but is accurate and affordable. I have heard that Nosler Competition Custom...

    I am looking for feedback from anyone who is reloading any type of 168gr projectile in their M1A ONLY. -What 168 are you shooting -What kind of brass are you using -What powder and what charge are you using -What is your FPS -What length barrel I'm trying to figure out Lake City vs. commercial...

  13. The M14
    Now i understand that it makes sense that after i cleaned out my gas plug, and piston with the sadlak cleaning drills that all that carbon residue i removed will mean more volume inside my gas cylinder(man those tools work great). This should in turn lower my velocity just a hair, and it did...
  14. Ammunition
    I have been wondering about the crimping style on RCBS dies and i have discovered that they are all roll crimp unless stamped with TC on the actual die. I have a FL and small base die, and on the small base box it says T/C, but the seater/crimping die has no TC marking on the actual die itself...
