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 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 […]

RCBS Announces new 7-Station Reloading Press

I started loading on a 3-station progressive press. Soon after starting my reloading career, I realized I wanted more stations. “Wouldn’t it be great to have separate stations for seating and crimping” I thought to myself. Soon I was loading on a 5-station press. Well, later on I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be great […]

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 […]

Revisiting Case Lube Alternatives

Over the years, I’ve talked quite a bit about different case lube products and techniques for both rifle and pistol reloading. Depending on your goals, the cartridge being reloaded, and what you have on-hand, your options will typically be honed down to a few “best options”. But the more you talk with seasoned reloaders, the […]

Wishing all of you a very merry Christmas this year, and a time that’s filled with family, friends, celebration, and [hopefully] shooting! Hopefully you all will find some great reloading gear under the tree as well! I recently got a shipment from Santa that included both Hodgdon CFE 223, and Hodgdon CFE Pistol, so look for some blog content related to […]

Video: Rifle Brass Prep Made Easy with the RCBS Trim Pro 3-Way Cutter

In a previous post, I demonstrated using machine shop equipment (a metal lathe and milling machine) for rifle brass prep. In this post, I’m following up on a suggestion to show the RCBS Trim Pro 3-Way cutter to collapse thee steps into one. Here’s the steps that I showed in the original post: Lube, size, […]

Christmas Gift Ideas for the Reloading Enthusiast

Has your wife, girlfriend, mom, or grandma been asking you “What do you want for Christmas”? Well here’s some ideas to make your list easier to write! Reloading Components OK, it’s a bit obvious, but who can’t use more powder, primers, or bullets? If you take 5 minutes to look over your inventory, I’m sure […]

Poll: What Reloading Components Can’t You Find?

Seasoned ammunition reloaders are used to shortages, but every shortage looks a bit different. Reloading component shortages are influenced by f political climate, tragedies, military and government component buys, and many other factors. So I’m wondering- what are you all having trouble finding at this time? Hoping you all can find what you need to load […]

Be sure to check out the video at the end of this post and the overview post if you haven’t already. Fortunately, Hornady supplies an excellent owner’s manual with this rifle […]

Video: Use Your Machine Shop Equipment for Brass Prep

One of the most important aspects of reloading rifle ammunition is correct brass prep. This is especially true when you are reloading military brass like 5.56 NATO (similar to .223 Remington) and 7.62x51mm (similar to .308 Winchester). These military cases are a great deal, and in some cases you can buy once-fired machine gun brass […]
