  1. Anything considered but preferably under £50, ideally some hornady’s thanks, Dave
  2. Hi Guys, a reduction in free time means I need to clear out some bits that I'm not likely to use up any time soon. I have for sale 1 full kg of N550 and a further approx 750g 2 x 1kg tubs of Elcho 17 (RS60) 2 x 1kg tubs of EI130 (which was the early name for RS52) I honestly can't remember what I paid for any of these but it all seems to average £90/kg RRP so I'm looking for £70/kg for the sealed RS powders and as it is a few years older £60 for the sealed N550 and £30 for the partial bottle. Finally I have approx 300g of Viht N140 and 450g of Lovex DO 73.6 these both came to me from a friend who was emigrating as I don't know what state they're in they are free to anyone who wants them with preference to anyone who buys something else. Can meet at Bisley weekend of 18/19th or Saturday am this weekend. If you're looking to meet mid week drop me a message. Advertising elsewhere and open to sensible offers or possible trades. Cheers Chris

    Brass preparation

    Hi, what are the pro and cons of using a Primer Pocket uniformer? This is for 6 br rifle using Lapua brass. Nick
  4. I have an excellent set of RCBS 22-250 Rem dies for sale. FL resizer and bullet seater. I'd like £30 for them. This includes postage UK mainland. I've advertised these elsewhere too. Any questions please ask. Thanks, Rupert
  5. I have for sale over 1000 5.56 once fired cases and roughly 800 7.62 once fired cases. Planned to reload them myself but haven't got around to it yet... Also around 100 7.62 NRA imperial 2017 once fired cases still in original packaging with the appropriate head stamps. Happy to sell in any quantities. Looking for £7.50/100 for 5.56 and £10/100 for 7.62 but open to sensible offers. Will post at cost or can collect from Stoke/Ashbourne area. Thanks for looking
  6. It started life as a .223 Remington 700P. The rifle was sent to Valkyrie Rifles for Dave to work his magic on. I wanted to be able to hit gongs out to 1000 yards! The rifle was built during January 2015. The action was blue printed and a barley twist was added to the bolt along with a tactical bolt knob. It has a 28” Pacnor Super Match Barrel with a 1 in 7 twist. Chambered in .223 Wylde, an 11 degree target crown was added and it was then screw cut for a Jet-Z moderator and an invisible end cap! The action, the bolt, the barrel and the moderator were then all Ceracoated in graphite black H series! This superb barrelled action now sits in an MDT Tac 21 chassis system. This modular chassis system has a built in 20 MOA Picatinny rail that runs the length of the system. Because this chassis accepts AR parts, I opted for a Houge pistol grip and a Magpul PRS adjustable but stock. Because of the removable butt stock, this long rifle is easily carried in a hard case. The rifle has fired a total of 344 rounds including the 5 rounds Dave fired through it way back in 2015! Using the load I’ve developed this rifle shoots .3 MOA @ 100 yards and reliably reaches out to the required distance! (We’re not talking about a barn door size target either. I shoot a 20”x 20” steel gong… Thats 2 MOA!) I have spent quite some time collecting the tools and materials required to make this rifle preform how I wanted. When I found the bullets it liked, I bought them in BULK! I’d like to sell it all including the info on load data. The Sale consists of: Semi Custom Remington in an MDT chassis system 1x 10 Round metal Accurate Mag Jet-Z Moderator Black Rifle Picatinny Rail (Mounted to fore grip to mount Bipod) 14x Box Hornady 80gr A-Max (1400 bullets!) 11 boxes all from the same batch 2x Tubs of H4895 (Enough powder for 540+ rounds) 200x PPU Brass - New 200x PPU Brass - Once fired (Formed in this chamber) 132x PPU Brass - Twice fired (Formed in this chamber on 2nd shoot) 118x Magtech Brass - Twice fired (From a previous chamber) Redding Competition Bullet seater (Micrometer type) A-Max bullet seater Stem. (VLD Stem and original also included) Hornady Lock-N-Load .223 Bullet Comparator insert Brush & Jag attachment for barrel cleaning Hard Case with egg shell foam All the above has cost in excess of £4.5k and the rifle has seen hardly any use. (The A-Max bullets alone make £500 of that and obviously they’ve never been used!) I’m asking for £3,500 for the whole package. £2,000 for the rifle in the Chassis System, Prs Stock, Pistol Grip & Mod - Once the rifle has gone I will be willing to split the rest. With this rifle and it’s reloading accessories, you will be out hitting steel beyond 700 yards as quick as you can get a scope on it! If you would like to negotiate on price, feel free to make an offer but you must be able to collect the rifle or pay the RFD fees... If I get full asking price, I am prepared to cover the RFD fees. If you'd like to know any more info, just use the thread or send me a PM. All The Best. Jay

    Kit Advice Please!

    Hello All! Have acquired a RCBS Rockchucker Supreme Kit, although there are things I need to acquire and would like your opinion / advice. Would like to get started loading 6.5 Creedmore, .223, 303, 7.5X55 and possibly .38/.357, in small quantities but to a decent standard - even if it is at a slow rate. Trying to stick to a budget as far as possible. Dies: Redding Premium Deluxe Die Set Primer Pocket & Flash Hole Prep: Is a brush and cutter required? Case Cleaning: Is this required? Digital Scales: Pocket-Touch 1500 Trickler: RCBS Trickler Case Trimmer: Lee Deluxe Quick Trim Case Trimmer Calipers: RCBS Calipers Headspacing & OAL Gauge: Hornady? Cartridge Holders: RCBS Compatibility? Hornady Lock N Load: May speed changes up, are these compatible with various dies? Appreciate your thoughts!

  20. Lapua's 6.5 Creedmoor is here! We are happy to announce the addition of the 6.5 Creedmoor case to the Lapua line! Despite a relatively short time on the marketplace, the 6.5 Creedmoor has made a tremendous splash in the field, rapidly becoming one of the most requested cases we hear about from shooters. Lapua's 6.5 Creedmoor is designed to function in a short action, which is also a plus for hunters, vitally concerned with the rifle’s weight and compactness. In fact, many of the same features which make for a successful competition cartridge, translate nicely to the hunting fields as well. For most species of mid-size game such as deer or boar, the Creedmoor will prove to be a deadly performer. And while the selection of high grade Match bullets in the 6.5 bore size is tremendous, there’s no shortage of exceptionally good hunting bullets either. The 6.5's as a group have always been known as excellent performers on game. Made with Lapua’s typical dedication to precision, our new 6.5 Creedmoor case has been refined just a bit, to make it an even better performer. We’ve opted for the small rifle primer, which normally produces an optimized ignition and better accuracy than large primers in mid-sized cartridges like the Creedmoor. We’ve also incorporated our smaller diameter flash hole (1.5mm, rather than the industry standard 2.0mm), which has proven to provide enhanced accuracy, and is used in a number of our other accuracy oriented cases. In this respect, the new 6.5 Creedmoor joins the ranks of our other dedicated accuracy cartridges such as the .220 Russian (6mm PPC), the 6mm BR Norma, the 6.5x47 Lapua and the .308 Win. Palma cases. And naturally, the new 6.5 Creedmoor will be made with our well known Passion for Precision. Strictest control over the metallurgy, the forming and drawing processes, precise annealing all performed under the watchful eyes of our production experts. For you, the handloader, that means the durability for which our cases are famous, combined with consistency and long life. Already proven in competition, we predict that the 6.5 Creedmoor will be a force to be reckoned with for many years to come. In stock now £99.99 inc free P+P for UKV members
  21. Hi all can anyone tell me what is causeing the following? I load 7mm and when my bullet is seated in the case, on odd occasions I find copper from the bullet head rubbed down the brass case and have like a splinter of copper on the bullet.i assume it's coming from the brass but it's not on every case. Any ideas please? And how to tackle this unusual mark on my bullet head ? Cheers Nick.
  22. For those of you that shoot the 6.5 Creedmoor and use Sierra bullets, Sierra have recently released reloading data for the cartridge. Check the two links below. Web page off their blog with the reloading data. PDF download.
  23. Good morning ladies and gents, Now I know I've been round this buoy before, but I STILL can't find a supplier fro .22 Hornet brass and I've reloaded all of my cases so many times that they are getting pretty "tired" now! I've had a couple of hundred cases on back-order for months (a lot of months) and none of the usual suppliers have turned up with the goodies yet! Is there anyone out there that can supply .22 Hornet brass???? Cheers, Lee.
  24. Just wanted to get thoughts on how handloading techniques contribute to accuracy - specifically the mechanisms and what can be done to improve them. I appreciate there is a lot on the forum on this but wanted to tangibly link it to a bit of thinking/learning/testing I am doing. As before I an relatively new to this and am tring to build up my knowledge. I am testing loads for my TRG22 - in .308 - it is a rifle that has a reasonable reputation for being unfussy. At the moment I am working on the basic assumption that accuracy is driven by 2 main components: 1, Load interaction with rifle harmonics - the 'nodes' - largely empirically found by ladder testing for group size (although Spud suggested they could be estimated on Quickload - I have QL but how do you do this?) 2, Overall load consistency as driven by charge, OAL etc consistency and demonstrated by MV consistency Is this correct? Any other major drivers? On point 2 - stand alone consistency (as apposed to fit / interaction with rifle) I am reloading with entry/mid level kit. Have a lee classic turret press, lee dies and a factory crimp (gentle crimp - including a 45degree rotation and repeat to smooth the impact of quartered petals) Use lapua brass and lapua rounds (prefer 155gr but have used 167gr Scen) but do not sort brass or bullets nor prep beyond tumbling and full length resize. CCI 200 primers but don't pay much attention here Loading around 44gr of N140 which gives good accuracy although not completely finished with ladder testing Use a Lyman Gen6 powder system because I'm lazy - do not dump the measures off by 0.1gr back - but might do in future Yesterday shot about 70 rounds at 300m in practice and measured 3 10-shot strings on a Magnetospeed V3 The 3, 10 shot SD's, were 8.4 fps, 12.3fps and 13.4fps, Excel calc gives overall SD of 11.2 fps and av MV of groups within 6 fps although av MV was 2752 fps vs 2791 predicted by quickload Now this is not the type of benchrest performance I often hear quoted a lot but it is: A, a statistically significant (ie 30 round) data set and B, Compares well with real world independent testing of .308 match ammunition - tested SD's of from what I can pick up in the range 20-40 fps aretypical and Bryan Litz aims for SD's "typically under 10fps" in his top of range, applied ballistics, "weighed charge, top component...." match ammo (I am ignoring the cherry picked anecdotes because they are statistically meaningless) presumably lab scales and a trickler will get the charge more uniform but in the spirit of Bryan Litz's WES analysis - where will I get the biggest 'bang for my buck'? (excuse pun) - I can count grains and weigh every bullet, sort or discard the least uniform 50% of my cases (hell I could get the bullets polished between the thighs of Balinese virgins and have my dies blessed by a Tibetan monk) but what gives the best return in the (very considerable) experience of the forum? Is it custom dies? a more rigid press?, I am assuming Lapua components are pretty much up there in quality - does sorting make a huge difference? How accurate and how effective is charge weighing and what is the best method. Thank you for reading this far ;-) Cheers Hobbit
