Neat idea. Never heard of such. Learned it old school myself. Books, articles, and doing it the hard way. Started with a nail, a board, a dowel and a mallet. That was about 30 years ago. If the ammo went bang and you didn't blow yourself up you were considered successful! Groups were secondary. We've come a long way!If you are familiar with Sportsmans Warehouse they offer beginning and advanced reloading classes, for free. At least they do here in Colorado.
I would recommend a New" Lyman reloading manual , so you will understand the difference in primer's , along with a 100's of other thing about reloading your on ammo , and use of the equipment ....So I finally took a reloading class! I plan to take these View attachment 113707
Back them with this View attachment 113708
Insert into these View attachment 113709
to make a bunch of this View attachment 113710 ! Just have to decide which primers to use and will have details when done!
We're half way thru a case of 10,000 Winchester Large Pistol primers and haven't had one FTF loading 45 ACP with a Dillon 550. Case was purchased late last year. Now I'll go out tomorrow and have multiple failures.:hmmmm2::vollkommenauf::hmmmm2:Unless Winchester make better rifle primers i would never buy Winchester. Large Pistol primers I have had over 50 not go off in out of a 1k box. I check evry rifle and pistol charge with a lee perfect powder measure and every charge gets weighed. I use only Remington or CCI primers now
Actually that happens to be one of my bucket-o-Remmington 405 grain bullets(scored a few thousand from midway a few months back)!Looks like you have a running start at this hobby. Not sure what kind of bullets you have but appear to be Speer 400 gr. do your research but the most accurate load I have found with this combination is the elmer keith load of 53 gr 3031 over speer 400gr projectile. I use winchester Large Rifle primers and have been satisifed with those and have not had any FTF in hundreds of loads. This load is on the heavy side so expect a bit of recoil with this load but I can get 1" groups at 125 yds, some were close to the same hole.
Enjoy the new hobby and we are waiting to hear how it went so a range report is anticipated.
WLP primers are harder than most. They are not for guns with a lightened mainspring that is for sure. I have had no problem with 1911s but tuned revolvers are a no go.Unless Winchester make better rifle primers i would never buy Winchester.
