Priming cases is one of the most important steps in the ammunition reloading process. It can also be the most frustrating! If you want to optimize your reloading workflow, it’s imperative that you have a priming setup that’s easy to use and performs up to your expectations. In this post, I’m going to show LEE’s […]

Century Arms N-PAP AK Unboxing and First Shots

There’s nothing quite like the anticipation when you’re about to take a new gun to the range. You may have had your eye on a particular firearm for a long time, or put one on special order. Then comes the moment when you load the magazine and prepare for those first shots. That’s what I […]

TC Compass Hands-On: From Unboxing to 600 Yards

For value-minded rifle buyers, there’s never been a better time than right now! Over the last 10 years, the “standard equipment” list of features and attributes for entry-level rifles has gotten better and better. If you told me 10 years ago that I’d be able to buy a rifle for $350-ish that was loaded with […]

.25-45 Sharps AR-15 Part 4: Forming .25-45 Sharps from .223/5.56 Brass

I don’t like to spend a lot of money on brass- and I know I’m not alone! One of the great things about the .25-45 Sharps cartridge is the fact that you can take everyday .223 Remington or 5.56 NATO brass and form it into 25-45 Sharps. You can even take previously fired .223 or […]

L.E. Wilson Full-Length Bushing Sizing Die Now Available for 14 Cartridges

I was excited to be one of the first people to try out the new L.E. Wilson full-length bushing-type sizing die. When I got my .243 Winchester version, it was literally one of the first off the production line, and I picked it up from L.E. Wilson president Daniel Reichert himself! Since then, Dan has […]

.25-45 Sharps AR-15 Part 3: First Loads

After months of planning, getting my rifles, and setting them up- it’s finally time to start loading .25-45 Sharps!

.25-45 Sharps AR-15 Part 1: Kick-Off and Rifles Overview

I absolutely love the AR-15 rifle platform. The AR-15 is iconic and historic, it’s modular, it’s affordable,  it’s compact and light weight, it’s fun to shoot- and it even looks cool! The AR-15 platform is also quite versatile- a great option for defense, target shooting and competition, and even varmint hunting. But what about big game […]

This time, we’ll talk about precision reloads end-to-end for the Ruger Precision Rifle in .243 Winchester. Here’s the walk-through video: Hopefully […]

LEE Auto Bench Priming Tool: Overview, Setup, Priming .223 and .308 Cases

Priming tools and systems come in all shapes, sizes, and configurations. Priming your cases is one of the most important aspects of reloading ammunition, and it can also involve a lot of frustration and trouble. So when I saw the introduction of the new the LEE Auto Bench Prime, I was curious. Could this be […]

MagnetoSpeed Sporter Chronograph: Unboxing, Overview, and Shooting with the AR-15

I have somewhat of a checkered history with chronographs. You may be familiar with the drill: setup the chronograph, try and work with the lighting you have, possibly setup supplemental lighting, and then try to avoid shooting the chronograph gates (don’t ask me how I know this). Given the right conditions, light/shadow type (conventional) chronographs can […]

Save Money with Bulk-Packaged Bullets from Midsouth Shooters Supply

One of the reasons to reload your own ammunition (of many) is to save money! With bullets comprising much of the cost of reloaded ammunition, it makes sense to shop bullet deals! You can buy discounted bullets, blemished bullets, and trade with friends to save money. But there’s a simpler way to save on bullets: […]

LEE Precision has recently released a new product who’s goal is to […]

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 […]

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. The arrival of this press is great in its timing: I’m just about to move from progressive loading of 6.5 Creedmoor (for the Ruger Precision Rifle) to single-stage precision reloading. This will be the […]

Ruger Precision Rifle Part 5: 6.5 Creedmoor Load Prep

It’s been fun getting to know the Ruger Precision Rifle platform. It’s a precision shooting instrument, but you can only get maximum precision if you reload for your rifle. There are so many variables specific to each instance of each specific rifle that can affect the precision of the ammunition you shoot. Some of these […]

Hornady Lock-N-Load AP Unboxing, Overview, and Setup

The Hornady Lock-N-Load AP 5 station progressive reloading press is a popular tool for loading both pistol and rifle ammunition. I’ve published a lot of content related to this press, but one thing I have not yet covered is unboxing- so here you go! Time to take a look up close at the very latest (2016) version of […]

RCBS Pro Chucker 7: Loading 9mm with Style

It’s pretty exciting to upgrade to a 7-station reloading press. I’ve often thought “I don’t *NEED* a couple more stations, but it shure would be nice!”. Well now I have that chance, the opportunity to “stretch out and move about the cabin” as it were with my die station utilizations. Following on the heels of […]

Ruger Precision Rifle Part 3: Range Day 1 Recap and Fireside Chat with the 6.5 Guys

In my last post, I took you all to the range to try out two Ruger Precision Rifles at both 600 yards range, and at 1000 yards range. A great day, and great performance for these two rifles. In this post, I want to invite you to enjoy a new experience on Ultimate Reloader: 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 […]

Essential Gear: Using the L.E. Wilson Rifle Case Gage

There are certain tools that can save you a lot of time, effort, and money. For reloaders of ammunition, a case gage is one such tool. Have you ever gone to the range and discovered an issue with your handloads? I certainly have. While a case gage can’t prevent all ammunition problems, it is what […]
