    243 bullet weights

    Stability has as much to do with length of bullet as well as weight, you should be able to shoot Sierra 100grain pro hunter through your .243 as these are flat base and short.

    Hi would anyone know if there is a max weight of barrel that a rem or tikka action can take saying barrel is fully floated, just thinking the longer and heavier you go much put a lot of stress on the action , Thanks

    Case lube

    Try thinning it down, I find 12 to 1 works well

    Redding Type s dies both full length and neck size come with a expander, it's the Redding competition die set that has no expander.

    reloading 6.5x55

    I had the same rifle what I found with the short barrel N560,RL22 and other slow burning powder that shows good speed in reloading books are lucky to get 2500 fps with a 140g bullet, I changed to RL17 ,RS60 and found good accuracy and 2700 fps,

    Removing expander ball on dies

    If you don't neck turn you will end up with a case that's round on the outside but oval on the inside this will give inconsistent neck tension

    Where are all the hardcore Varmint hunters gone ?

    N140 works well with 77g tmk N135 Will work with 50g v max but N133 would be better if you had it
