Don’t overlook surplus rifles like the mosin nagant or sks. If your set on 30-06 you can find lower cost fire arms out there.Statistics: Posted by danthman114 — Thu Nov 09, 2017 4:01 pm

If you’re running corrosive ammo you have to remove the salts. Regular solvents dont do this. The cheapest way is hot soapy water or Windex. If your is rusted it needs replaced unless accuracy is of no concern.

Thank you all finished the first read of the beginner’s guide to reloading. Started the A B C’s of reloading. Was look ing at kits like on the link by danthman114. Need to get reading……….

If you get one of those Lee loaders BE CAREFUL. Don’t have any powder near by. They may be cheap but the chance of a primer detonation is higher than other kits due to the fact that a mallet is used. I have one but never use it. You would be better off getting the Lee hand press. http://ads.midwayusa.com/product/650614 … oCAQfw_wcB

You still need other equipment like a tumbler, a trimmer, a deburring tool, scale and or dippers, dial calipers, an inertia hammer Incase you need to take apart your rounds.

The Lee loader is a cheap press like package. Sewhat dangerous if you go too fast. I had a primer detonation on 45lc. Wasn’t fun at all. http://leeprecision.com/reloading-kits/ … er-pistol/
But, if someone wanted to reload it would be the cheapest way to start. I still use a Lee hand press even tho I have a Hornady progressive and a rock chucker. Mostly because most of the year it over 120 degrees in my garage.

I learned off a Speer book and lots of questions. The best thing to do is have someone that knows how there with you. The Lee book is probably the most versatile when it comes to load data. They have many manufacturers in it…

Wow Kappydell,

Paper patch bullets…for sure.

That is exactly how they used to do it in the olde days before gas checks.

Thanks for reminding me.

Not sure , however, if it would work well in a magazine fed rifle.

But if you have little else…you can single feed said ammunition…in whatever you have.

Thanks,

The old days they didn’t use modern powders and the pressures were nowhere near what you see now. This is why they invented gas checks.

Knowing how to cast is a great skill to have but I only cast for certain guns. Revolvers, muzzle loaders, shotgun slugs, and will be ordering a 220 gr rn in 310 for my 30-40 krag. I’ve also been looking into guns that started out as shooting black powder cartridges. Like the 45-70 or 44-40. Primers would be the hard part. You can use the white tip on strike anywhere matches and rebuild the used primers but it’s not reliable at all. I’ve read on making fulminated mercury but I’m not keen on possibly killing myself for primers when there’s flintlocks for sale everywhere. Or bows and arrows but that is another subject all together….

Best place to ask that question would be at the cast boolits website. There was a guy there that did all the testing for an m1a and I’m sure that someone has done an ar15

No sir I do not. I’m in Yuma AZ. Just curious what you considered training. Look into something like gunsite or the like, but closer to your area to get the training you’re looking for. Don’t pay attention to the YouTube commandos who “train” with firearms. 9 times out of 10 it’s some guy who watches and parrots other videos from Chris costa when in reality what they do will get you shot up…

I don’t keep one. I have packs from when I was still in but have no desire to leave home. Yuma will be fine. We can take care of our own here. 3 ways in and can be closed off. With the farming we have, we have food. The Colorado River supplies the water. I think we’re good here. Not worried about it but when we go to California I have a full kit depending on time of year and always in a 4wd and always take a rifle and pistols…

Thank you for for sharing. Pray tell, do run RRA stock or modded?

I had them build it when I shot for the base team. A4 upper, a2 butt stock and grip, stainless Wilson match barrel, RR 2 stage trigger. I have the lead weights for it but only use them for competition. My colt has a vltor modstock and a Leupold mk4 cqt. No batteries required…
