Beyond it All

Beyond it All (9/11)

  1. research conversion kit to install a RCBS or Hornady powder measure. with extruded powders they can be more constant. otherwise look at other powder alternatives . now with all that said. US Palma team loads their ammo on a 650. David Tubbs loads on a modified 550. Accept the variation it has less effect than you may thick. If loading real long range weigh each charge. You already stated that your reloads are more accurate than the mill surplus ammo you have been shooting. It may. Just maybe time to . Just shoot and not worry about a minor variation .
  2. Q1 yes you can size .001 to .002 .but no more than that at one time .IE if you (for example) need to size .004 or smaller you would do it insteps. I currently make and coat my own bullets. The sizer that i use(star) is apush through that i have adjusted to not lube. A simple Lee sizer will work quite well. fyi most "9mm" bullets come out of the mold at .360 =/- .001 . then coated. then sized to what ever diameter that is needed within reason (.358/.357/.356/.355) Q2 NO Believe it or not coated bullets are tuffer than plated when it comes to sizing.(in a way) The coated bullet will .For lack of a better word flex. Plated on the other hand. The plating is brittle and actually easer to damage. When it comes to sizing.
  3. Call SNS. Have gotten .358 from them before. The 160 is a 38 supper bullet . It comes out of the mold enough to size correctly.
  4. https://www.snscasting.com/9mm-38-super-160-grain-round-nose-coated-1000ct/ http://www.acmebullet.com/38-CAL-SUPER-Lead-Hard-Cast-Reloading-Bullets/38- CAL-160-RN-hard-cast-bullets
  5. In my decades of loading ammo/operating equipment. I have found that most upgrades. Really are solutions looking for a problem. They cause more issues than they fix.
  6. Sounds to me that you have a good load for you. I would test it as the weather changes through the year. Mostly at temperature extremes.
  7. so what is your extreme spread? How many rounds are you basing this on? If I read your previs statements correctly. You are good to go. But if based on say 5 rounds . NO! Now if based on 20 rounds. Your good to go.
  8. keep track if it is the same head stamp . . Pay attention what the next case is also. Some lots of Remington have a smaller diameter rims. (four example) Could be catching the top of the case . This will tip the case below causing a miss feed into the shell plate.
  9. Tophernj has left the building. He now (a year ago) has a tack sport. But that was a year ago.
  10. 4064 is one of those powders that doesn't meter well. But it takes one full gran to make a difference in a 3006 case. 4895 meters better if you have accercy issues with the 4064.
  11. N320,Sport pistol,w231 are all very close in speed.
  12. there is nothing special about this bullet. lots of sources for 135 coated bullets . Pick one. SNS, Acme, just to name two.
