  1. Very nice write up! On the hornady 68s non-cannelured, try 24.8-25.0 Varget and REM 7 1/2 or 205m primers. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    New to reloading

    You're on the road to a good addiction. Single stage press is sufficient for starting out. I would highly recommend getting the Dillon swager and take a look at the Giraud tri-way trimmer. A primer pocket swage gauge will come in handy also. If you're loading for an AR, small base dies. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Case Trimmers

    Take a look into the giraud tri-way. I have one each for 223 and 308. Indexes off the shoulder. Trim, chamfer and debur at same time. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    De crimping Military ctg

    I picked up a Dillon 600 swager in a second hand setup I got. Once I get a good rhythm going, it's pretty quick. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    WFT?

    Have been pondering the investment myself. Torn between the WFT or the Giraud tri-way. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    An the loading bench is nearly operational

    Looking good! What's the size of your bench top? I picked up a solid core door the other day from work. It was going to be thrown out till I got it. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    Hello, new to the site

    Yep, that happened to me too. My first AR was a Ruger, did a few mods to it, girlfriend started shooting it while I was building my next one. Long story short its hers now. ;) I had it cerakoted for her, she picked the colors and the battle worn theme. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    Email from Hornady.... New 2018 products.

    Got a side job that helped with that. Averaging around 70 hrs a week. Will take the extra cash whenever I can get it. Been four years since I had a side job this good. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    My piggy bank is broke for a while now also. New FFP scope, mount, new aero precision lower and LPK, and got my girlfriends AR cerakoted. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    Trying out some Norma TAC-223

    Thanks! I mainly bought it for the brass for reloading - 1/4 the cost for 400 Norma casings. Hopefully I'll be able to start investing in reloading equipment soon. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    Trying out some Norma TAC-223

    I honestly don't have any complaints about it. Using a brass catcher to save the brass for eventual reloading. Was a lot cheaper buying the ammo vs just buying the brass. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    Buffer Wear

    What kind of shot groups are you getting with yours? Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    Buffer Wear

    There is an excellent Facebook group Ruger SR/AR 556 that you should look into. I believe the main issue with the Ruger AR is the back of the bolt carrier was leaving a circular groove on the buffer. I own a Ruger AR556 and haven't had any issues with mine. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
