Ultimate Reloader Celebrates 200 Videos Milestone

When I started Ultimate Reloader, I had no idea I would ever produce 200 videos, acquire 29,000 subscribers, and rack up nearly 8,000,000 views (averaging 40,000 views per video!). Today I’ve met those goals! It’s been a lot of work, a lot of fun, and has been one of the most satisfying experiences in my life. I […]

.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 Pistol Dies: Overview and Setup

My very first set of reloading dies were LEE 44 Magnum pistol dies that came with the LEE Pro-1000 press that I started out with. Since then, I’ve acquired many more sets of LEE dies ranging from 30-06 to 9mm to 45 ACP to 357 SIG and quite a few in between. LEE Pistol Dies […]

Offering ready-to-load brass in a variety of popular chamberings, ECRS brass comes shipped to your door in neat-and-tidy re-sealable […]

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 […]

Reloading Essentials: RCBS Vernier Ball Micrometer

If you demand precision from your rifle, you need precision from your ammunition. If you need precision from your ammunition, you’ll need the proper precision measurement tools to “dial things in”. A good ball micrometer is an example of one of a handful of precision measurement tools you should have in your tool chest in […]

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 […]

Ruger Precision Rifle: Vortex Viper 6-24×50 Riflescope Discussion with the 6.5 Guys

The Ruger Precision Rifle is a great rifle platform. I’ve had some great groups right out of the box, and have had no problems staying on target at ranges of 1000 yards and beyond. To me, the Ruger Precision Rifle is an “easy buy” for the new competitive shooter or practical field shooter. But what […]

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 […]

Ultimate Reloader Deal: Save 10% Off Inline Fabrication Ultramounts

When it comes to shopping online, I’ll search the ends of the earth for the best deal. The first thing I do is to search for coupon codes and promotions. Today, I’m excited to offer my very first partner promotion here on Ultimate Reloader. For a limited time, you can save 10% off Inline Fabrication […]

Hands-on with the new L.E. Wilson Case Gage Depth Micrometer

One of the most critical aspects of reloading rifle ammunition is proper sizing. First, you need to have a good sizing die for the cartridge you are reloading. Second, you need to setup your sizing die for optimal functioning (Ex: feeding in an autoloader) and accuracy/precision. While it may sound simple to setup a sizing […]

Bushnell Elite Tactical 1 Mile Rangefinder: Unboxing and Overview

When it comes to long-distance precision shooting, there are some tools you can live without, and others that are just mandatory. A good laser rangefinder falls into the “mandatory” category if you are serious about long-distance shooting in the field where target distances and angles are not pre-defined. I’ve been pushing my shooting out further […]

Ultimate Reloader is Teaming Up with Midsouth Shooters Supply

One of the things I love about running Ultimate Reloader is the opportunity to partner with online personalities, companies, and other like-minded people. Recently, I had the opportunity to get connected with the guys down at Midsouth Shooters Supply (I’m a customer of theirs!), a great family run business. Today, I’m happy to announce that […]

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 […]

Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron Press Kit: Unboxing and Overview

If you are like me, you’ve been eagerly awaiting the availability of the new Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron reloading press system. I have been working with Hornady on getting the first videos up for this press, and literally received the first kit off the line. In this series, I’ll cover this new press system and kit […]

Ruger Precision Rifle Part 6: Progressive Loading 6.5 Creedmoor

My journey with the Ruger Precision Rifle has been exciting, but we’ve only just begun the part of this story where things get really interesting. My initial loads (no development) have yielded some great results in the Ruger Precision Rifle: a 0.626″ 5-shot group with 6.5 Creedmoor, and a 0.341″ 5-shot group with .243: (click to […]

Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron Press – Coming First to Ultimate Reloader

Hey everyone! I’m very excited to announce that I’m going to receive one of the first Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron reloading presses shortly, and I’ll be first to bring you extensive information and content (including videos) about this exciting new press. Here’s what I think is interesting about this new press (can’t wait to get my […]

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 […]

New Products from Vortex for 2016

Recently, I’ve become a big fan of Vortex Optics, specifically the Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50mm scope that I’ve been using on my Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. So what’s the latest and greatest from Vortex? Here’s a quick overview of some of the new products from Vortex for 2016. Vortex Optics Razor HD LH Riflescopes […]

Hornady ELD-X Bullets Are In The Shop

For 2016, Hornady has unleashed a bunch of exciting new products- two that I’m particularly excited about are the new Lock-N-Load Iron press (I will be covering that in detail shortly!) and the new line of bullets including ELD-X and ELD Match bullets. I just got my hands on some ELD-X bullets, and I’m really […]

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 […]
