precision reloading
« on: October 12, 2013, 05:38:01 PM »
   I was wondering if any one knows of any one that puts on a precision reloading course here in Alberta.I have been reloading for some time now and would like to attend a course that covers the finder points for reloading.I think it would be interesting to see what type of equipment they use,and how to they use it.Just thinking of something to do this winter.I am in central AB.so if any of you F-class shooters/long range shooters/etc want to share/teach some of us, I think there would be lots of interest and I think it would be nice to meet some of form members in person/and any others who share the same interest....just putting this out there.

Great to see a new post in the Guns and Shooting forum.
I'm sure some may argue, but precision reloading is all about consistency and controlling as many variables as possible.
Equipment can vary, but a common theme is accuracy, with low tolerances. Scales capable of better than plus or minus one grain, measuring equipment to four decimal places, powder dispensers capable of better than plus or minus one grain, bushing dies, a quality press, a quality case trimmer, primer pocket tools, flash hole tools, various chamfers, a myriad of other gizmos and doodads, and last but not least, an accurate chronograph.
Case prep is often disputed, and methods vary, but as long as it is the same, other variables should be easy to identify.

Accurate ammo makes accurate rifles.

If you get enough guys together, and time permitting, I could certainly partner with a certain someone, load up some junk, and put something on.

Dinty Moore is to shooters, like spinach is to Popeye.
Hell of a thing, killing a deer. You take away all he's got, and all he's ever going to have.

...myriad of other gizmos and doodads...

And several cans of Dinty Moore.

And a canned chicken, or two...

General rule of thumb is advance case pressure to just under the brink of explosion then back off to match harmonics
Sorry I don't ice fish or hunt rabbits, but I did stay at a Holliday in express last night.

I would attend all my reloading gear is stuffed away and I haven't touched it in 15 years but would like to get back into it. My dad used to reload all my stuff but he's in the happy hunting grounds permanently now, he taught me to hand load, he taught a lot of guys to hand load.

Will never forget him teaching his neighbor and went to check on him, and the guy had all his casings lined up with powder in, and my dad asked him how many grains he had in each casing, and the guy was up and down a grain here and there, my dad smacked him in the back of the head, made him dump all the casings, and start over lol.
