.25-45 Sharps AR-15 Part 5: Precision Loads with the MEC Marksman

The quest for precision ammunition is something I never grow tired of. Well that is, if I’m dealing with a firearm of sufficient precision! If I’m not, I may resort to some gunsmithing because precision is just in my veins. So I’m excited to be working on precision loads for the .25-45 Sharps. I can’t […]

LEE New Auto Prime Tool: Overview, Priming .223 and .308 Cases

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 […]

.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! I’m not sure exactly why, but every time I start to load for a new cartridge, I get a feeling of anticipation and excitement. It’s one of the great things about ammunition reloading as a hobby- […]

.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 […]

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 […]

Overview: Inline Fabrication Quick Change Press Mounting System

Are you one of those people (like me) that want their cake, and you want to eat it too? When it comes to press mounting solutions, I want a setup that’s *both* totally rock-solid *and* super quick to setup and swap presses with. In this post, I’m going to cover a product lineup from Inline […]

Ruger Precision Rifle: Fire Forming .243 Winchester Brass

If you want maximum precision out of your rifle, a combination of fire-forming and handloading is a great way to achieve that goal. When you fire a cartridge in a rifle, the brass expands to the exact profile of the chamber its being fired in. This is why sizing is necessary as a part of […]

Exclusive Hornady AP Powder Measure Kit from Ultimate Reloader and Midsouth Shooters Supply

One of the questions I get from time to time here on Ultimate Reloader is: “Hey, I want to add another Hornady Lock-N-Load powder measure to my press, what parts do I need?”. The answer is, you’ll need the following (assuming you’d like to load both rifle and pistol cartridges with your powder measure): Hornady […]

Loading for the AR-15 with the LEE Auto-Drum Powder Measure

Here on Ultimate Reloader you can count on a LOT of AR-15 content coming over the next year: everything from reloading .223/5.56, to hunting, a lot more with suppressors, and some custom AR-15 rifle action! In this post, I’ve got some great highlights including the LEE Auto-Drum powder measure, the RCBS Pro Chucker 5 progressive […]

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: […]

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. 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 […]

RCBS Pro Chucker 5: Loading .223 Remington

It’s time for Part 7 in the series I’ve been covering on the RCBS Pro Chucker 5. This time we’ll get down-and-dirty loading .223 Remington, something any AR-15 owner will be interested in! I like to show different loading setups in each blog/video, and this time I thought I would try the “.223 equivalent” of […]

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 […]

In this post, I’ll give you an overview of the Hornady Lock-N-Load Rifle Bullet Feed 30 caliber conversion kit (Hornady product # 095345).

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 […]
