Merry Christmas 2015 From Ultimate Reloader

Hey everyone- hoping you are having a great Christmas day this year! Hopefully you aren’t sick (as many of us get this time of year) but rather enjoying time with family and friends. Perhaps you’ll even get a chance to shoot with friends, or head down to the shop to do some reloading together and share […]

RCBS Pro Chucker 7: Unboxing and Setup

It’s been fun working with the new RCBS Pro Chucker 5, but things are about to get even more exciting. Yes, it’s time to add the RCBS Pro Chucker 7 into the mix! This 7-station progressive auto-indexing is the “big brother” of the RCBS Pro Chucker 5, and is built on the same frame. While […]

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 4: First 100 Yard Groups and Deer Hunting

When it came time to go deer hunting this year, I didn’t have to think long before deciding to take the Ruger Precision Rifle rather than my light-weight 30-06. Yes, this rifle is heavier, but I was curious to find out if it was something I could hike all day with. It actually took me […]

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 […]

Ruger Precision Rifle Part 1: Unboxing, Overview, Setup, Sight-In

I’m very excited to kick off a new content series that will feature the Ruger Precision Rifle, 6.5 Creedmoor and 243 Winchester cartridges, as well as in-depth reloading and shooting coverage. The Ruger Precision Rifle will serve as the platform I’ll use to push my long-range shooting skills to the next level (or two, or […]

A New Ultimate Reloader is Coming Soon!

Hey everyone! Wanted to let you know about some exciting changes coming to the Ultimate Reloader website and YouTube channel. Shortly, you’ll start to see the roll-out of an updated Ultimate Reloader that will sport a new “look and feel” as well as some other great improvements. Here’s a preview of the new logo for […]

RCBS Pro Chucker 5: Loading 40 S&W

It’s hard not to appreciate the 40 S&W cartridge. It’s compact, it’s powerful, and it’s very versatile at the range or for personal defense. Heck, if you reload your own ammo, you can practice with premium hollowpoints for near the same price as your “economy” reloads. Whether or not you carry your own reloaded ammo is 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 […]

6.5mm Grendel: 308 Ballistics for the AR-15

When Steve Lawrence from the 6.5 Guys asked if I’d like to shoot his AR-15 chambered in 6.5mm Grendel, I said: “Absolutely!”. We were up at the “Ultimate Reloader Outpost” working on another shooting project, and had some spare time. A great opportunity to try a new AR-15 chambering! Prior to to this experience, I […]

Meet the 6.5 Guys

One of the things I enjoy most about what I do with Ultimate Reloader is meeting like minded people who share a passion for any number of my hobbies. Some of these interests include reloading, shooting, motorcycles, diesel and heavy equipment, fabrication and machining, technology, videography/sound, photography, retro iron, and the list goes on! Recently, […]

Cleaning Reloading Dies with an Ultrasonic Cleaner

Disgusting. That’s the word I use to describe my crusty jar of mineral spirits that I use to clean dies. It’s a mess to use, and when I blow dry the dies there’s a fine mist of mineral spirits that you can smell in the shop air. You may know the feeling: the excitement of […]

Unboxing the RCBS Ultrasonic Cleaner

In preparation for loading 45 ACP on the RCBS Pro Chucker 5, I thought it would be a great idea to “get serious” about my die cleaning setup. Well, I’m about to show you a huge upgrade from my “shake the dies in a can of paint thinner method” that I’ve used for years. I’m […]

RCBS Pro Chucker 5: Press Assembly Part 2

In this post, I’ll continue where we left of in my last post (see RCBS Pro Chucker 5 Press Assembly Part 1) by taking on the assembly of the new-and-improved RCBS Uniflow powder measure. This new version of the Uniflow that’s included with the Pro Chucker 5 features some great updates that include a quick-change […]

RCBS Pro Chucker 5: Integration with Ultimate Reloader Bench System

Following-up on my unboxing video for the RCBS Pro Chucker 5, it’s now time for the important task of mounting this new press to the reloading bench. Since many of you have asked about my “Ultimate Reloader Reloading Bench System” I thought I would provide more details and information about how this system works in […]

RCBS Pro Chucker Presses Have Arrived

The day has finally come! It’s not too often that new progressive reloading “systems” are introduced, and this year RCBS is doing that with the all new “Pro Chucker” presses – available in 5-station and 7-station variants (and you can even convert them back and forth without buying a new press). After working with RCBS […]

DIY 40 S&W / 10mm Quick Changeover Setup

My metal lathes are tools that I just can’t do without. I am frequently amazed at how often a metal lathe will come in handy around the house and shop, especially for gunsmithing and reloading accessories/tools. I’ve written several times about how I’ve machined shims for various reloading fixtures. Examples include calibrating my Hornady Lock-N-Load […]

Redding offers Master Hunter 2-Die Set

If you are looking for the best quality dies available on a reasonable budget, it’s hard to beat Redding dies. Furthermore, the construction and features of the Redding Competition Seating Die are very compelling (micrometer seating depth adjustment, sliding collar seating stem, etc). Until recently, you had to either buy dies individually from Redding or […]

Video: Custom Bullet Feed Setup: Reloading 40 S&W on the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP

I enjoy the process of designing and building things, and I guess the “inventor” in me can’t help but want to create new products. It’s always a pleasure to see what other people come up with, and to help them market and sell their inventions (Example: Doug Williams’ 38/357 quick switch kit). Recently, one of […]

Video: Loading 40S&W with the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP

40 S&W is one of the most popular cartridges with handgun shooters, and it’s not hard to see why. Packing a powerful punch in a package smaller overall than 45 ACP, it’s a great cartridge for target shooting as well as defense/carry. Recently, I picked up a Glock 20 and 40 S&W conversion barrel, and […]

It’s Official, RCBS Pro Chucker 5 and 7 Content Coming!

I wanted to give everyone a quick update on the new progressive reloading presses from RCBS. I have been working with RCBS on planning a series of content that will highlight the new “RCBS Pro Chucker 5” and the “RCBS Pro Chucker 7” progressive reloading presses. I am happy to announce that Ultimate Reloader will […]

Glock 20: The Ultimate 10mm and 40S&W Shooting Setup

For a long time I’ve been looking forward to producing a blog/video series covering 10mm Auto and 40 S&W. What’s not to like about taking 9mm to the next power level? 40 S&W essentially does that. Want to go extreme? 10mm Auto packs a major punch, it’s the most powerful semi auto handgun cartridge that […]
