  1. Hi I have the Hornady lock and load powder dispenser. I have no bad issues with it only small issue it doesn’t like fine powder for instance H335 which I call fine powder
  2. Any preference on the Sightron scopes? I shoot Fclass using 8-32x 50 LRMOA reticle nice scope! Each to there own I guess!

    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
  11. my hornady scales work fine on Viht 165, but when i try to weight H335 its a bloody nightmare
  12. Hi redshift what weight are the 6mm ? Cheers Nick
  13. We all have our likes and dislikes, at the end of the day the one who pulls the trigger has only them self to blame if it goes pair shape. I have used Lee Aniversary beam scales they were my very first scales, but I moved forward and purchased Hornady kit. I have a mixture of kit Rcbs rockchucker press, Hornady scales, Forster dies, I am more than happy with my kit and have no intention to change what I have.
  14. since reloading i have used Hornady Lock n Load scales. and i double check each weight with Hornady Balance Beam Scales. Both scales are Fantastic. nick
