    How do You prep Your brass? UKV survey.

    Try to anneal brass every third firing. Tumble in walnut media , re size full length, check length. chech cases for cracks, if found brass is scrapped. if trimming is needed spend more time in the garage! ( find this trimming seriously boring). clean primer pockets with Lymons prep centre. prime using RCBS rock chucker, use Hornady lock and load scales, charge ! seat bullet check each loaded bullet, check OAL , 3”117 . Wipe cases down. Box and write load data and date of re loading. Nick

    Newbie - needing a reloading kit

    Hi, i have a mixture of reloading kit RCBs rock chucker press, Hornady Lock and Load scales along with Hornady beam scales. Forster dies, Lymans prep centre.Lymans Tumbler, All good stuff and hasn’t let me down . It’s up to you bearing in mind once bought should last a life time in reloading. you can go over board ! And buy kit that’s not quite needed . So if you see something that you want but not quite sure ask on this forum as someone will have a answer for you! Then it’s up to you !

    Importing reloading equipment from the states?

    I never bothered with buying from abroad, you read about duty and tax . I support my local gun shop from the club I shoot at. I sometimes wish I could buy more ! Like the shop but at least I can browse the shop shelf’s and buy as and when I want items.

    Importing reloading equipment from the states?

    Whilst on holiday in Italy couple of years ago I met a chap who like myself enjoyed shooting, he was from Belgium, he says brass such as Lapua is cheaper there than the uk. I often wondered if you can buy certain non explosive reloading components from other countries.other than America
