Load development is a critical pathway that leads to “great things” for those of us that are obsessed with precision and accuracy. What’s difficult about load development is how time consuming it can be. Variables include brand of brass, powder type, powder charge, primer type, bullet type, bullet seating depth, and more.

NEW Expanding Mandrel Die from L.E. Wilson

I do a lot of shooting with loads using brand new brass. And the results can be downright impressive! One challenge I’ve had with loading new brass (a frequent issue) is excessive neck tension.

Bullet seating force can tell you a lot about what’s going on with your reloads. Are you wondering if you have proper neck tension? Measuring bullet seating force can lend important insights.

Don’t Blow up that 1911: Reload 45 ACP the Safe Way

I haven’t blown up a gun, but I know it happens every day. Usually, reloaded ammunition is a part of the equation when a gun goes “Kaboom”. Reloading ammunition is a serious responsibility and isn’t without danger. Perhaps that’s part of the appeal- you’re literally working with explosives and building ammunition. While it’s possible to […]

Any shooting sport that takes precision to the extreme will involve exacting brass prep as a part of the reloading process. In order to achieve such exacting standards, case length and case squareness must be held to exacting tolerances. L.E.

Concentricity King: L.E. Wilson Chamber-Type Micrometer Bullet Seater

A wobbling football doesn’t fly very straight. In the same way, a wobbling bullet will not group well at range. There are two major factors in eliminating bullet “wobble”: stabilizing the bullet properly (a function of bullet weight and rifling twist rate), and bullet/case concentricity. In this article, we’ll focus on concentricity, specifically bullet concentricity […]
