Reloading can be fun, but be safe.  Any data collected should be double and triple checked before firing a shot.  Do lots of research and be SAFE.



Got a few links that I would like to share.

Chuck Hawks has a lot of information on reloading and many other interesting topics.

http://www.chuckhawks.com/index2k_reloading.htm


Hodgdon powder has a great reloading data center.

http://www.hodgdon.com/


Accurate Shooter has tons of information on cartridges.

http://www.accurateshooter.com/

Share your links for info and data. :shaka:

Wow, that bullet puller did look cool. Lee was what I was planning on getting when I start reloading.

Lee stuff is a great value! I use lots of their stuff. I really like the collet neck die and pistol dies. Their full length sizing dies, I don't  like though. I feel they work the brass too much, causing excessive trimming and shortens case life.
That case trimmer die looks interesting to me. The old trimmers are one size only and cannot be adjusted, however they are quick and easy to use. I'm gonna give that trimmer a look when they come out.

Yeah, the trimmer is what really caught my eye.  Time saver for sure.  Not sure how often I would need the bullet puller. 

Heavies, need to consult you when I start reloading rifle!

I use the Dillon trimmer and it is awesome.  I can easily trim 500 cases per hour and it has a vacuum attachment to suck out all the trimming.   And, there is no need to chamfer the case mouth as it is a very clean & precise trim.  :geekdanc:

Bought Nosler cosmetic 2nds from here.  Last purchase I got was (100) .224 77s for $13.95 with a free shipping promo code "100SHPGF" you must register for an account and order must be over $100. Compared to Midway USA 1000 of 77s go for about $159 w/o shipping charges.
Also found a used Gracey trimmer at ar15.com  As fast as a Giraud but not as refined.

Yup that bullet puller is top shape.  Would think it would also work in a Rock Chucker.

Lead is a soft metal.  Its hardness is expressed on a standard scale, called the Brinell Hardness Number (BHN.)  The BHN of the bullet interacts with the pressure generated by the burning powder.  The mechanism of this involves the effect of the generation of thousands of pounds per square inch of pressure which causes the base of the bullet to expand, or “obturate”.  Properly obturated, the base will have expanded beyond its original diameter which has the effect of “sealing the bore” against the explosive pressure of the gases burning behind it.  Properly sealed, and working in conjunction with the lubricant in the lube groove, the bullet will thus not allow gases to escape forward from around the base of the bullets, which prevents it from shaving lead from the bullet body and forcing it into the bore grooves (otherwise known as “leading”.)

This failure to obturate (“seal the bore against onrushing gases”) causes leading which is a chore to clean and is a major obstacle to accuracy.

An optimally hard lead bullet is simply one which obturates at a given pressure sufficiently to seal the bore against the gases which would otherwise “cut through” the soft lead (called “gas-cutting”, forcing molten lead into your rifling.  A bullet which is too hard won't obturate and seal the bore, because the gas pressure is insufficient to expand the base of the bullet.  A bullet which is too soft at a given pressure will experience excessive base expansion and vaporization of the lead, causing leading.

There is a formula for optimal bullet hardness which is simple and it is worth knowing:

Optimum BHN = PSI / (1422 x .90)
