L.E. Wilson Full-Length Bushing-Type Sizing Die: Overview and Setup

It’s always exciting to try new products- the latest such product I’ve been working with is the L.E. Wilson Full-Length Bushing-Type Sizing Die. It all started when I asked Daniel Reichert (president at L.E. Wilson) about gear for the Ruger Precision Rifle I have in .243 Winchester. Daniel thought- why not try out the new Bushing-Type […]

Overview: New Enduron Powders from IMR

It’s always exciting to see new reloading products that make things “that much better”. That was my first impression when trying Hodgdon’s CFE-223 and CFE-Pistol powders. These powders have performed great, and I love the fact that copper de-fouling is “built in”. There’s a new crop of powders from IMR that feature copper de-fouling plus […]

Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron Press Kit: Mounting and Setup

I’ll admit, I’m having a hard time being patient when it comes to getting started with the Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron Press.

This will be the […]

Ruger Precision Rifle Part 2: 600 yard and 1000 yard Range Day with the 6.5 Guys

In my last post, I walked through the unboxing, overview, setup, and sight in of the Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. With only a quick 100-yard sighting completed, I was off to the range the next morning with Jim Findlay and the 6.5 Guys: Ed Mobley and Steve Lawrence. Sure, I had fired a […]

Hornady Rifle Bullet Feeder Part 5: Loading 308 for the AR-10

I am known to be a bit of an extremist. If shooting an AR-15 is fun, wouldn’t shooting an AR-10 be more fun? I actually enjoy both, but I do shoot my DPMS LR-308B quite a bit. That means I’m loading 308 Winchester quite a bit, and that’s what this post is about: loading for […]
