Awesome 308 Loading Setup Allows Monitoring of Brass Length While Loading

Ever since I started the AR-308 project here on Ultimate Reloader, I’ve been scheming up and crafting the “ultimate” (pun intended) reloading setup for precision 308 ammunition. I really enjoy shooting the LR-308B rifle, and I know exactly what I’m looking for in a 308 loading setup for everyday precision shooting: Efficiency in brass prep […]

AR-308 – RCBS Pro-2000 and 30 cal RCBS Rifle Bullet Feeder

Now that we’ve covered the precision loading process for the AR-308 project, it’s time now to move on to progressive reloading. This will enable us to load ammunition very quickly.

AR-308 – Brass and Brass Prep Basics

Now that we’ve finished provisioning the LR-308B rifle for the AR-308 project, it’s time to gear up for precision handloading! Before we start loading, we need to get brass, and prep that brass. It turns out that for precision rifle loading, much of the labor and attention to detail is really related to the brass. […]

AR-308 – Redding equipment overview

One of the things I like most about these kinds of projects (AR-MPR, AR-308) is the opportunity to showcase new reloading equipment (new to the market, or new to my shop :)).

AR-308 – Millett TRS-1 4-16x50mm Scope Overview

One of the most important components of a good long range rifle is the scope. It goes without saying that a scope must hold zero in order for a rifle to shoot tight groups. The quality of the optics, the repeatability and accuracy of the windage/elevation adjustments, and other factors also play a key role […]

AR-308 – Geissele SD-C Trigger Upgrade

A while back, I posted the Geissele trigger install video while building the AR-MPR AR-15 rifle. I liked the Geissele trigger used on the AR-MPR project so much, that I decided to buy one for the AR-308 project – this time a different version. In this video, we’ll remove the factory trigger, and replace it […]
