    Talking Reloading Day!

    So this happened
    image.jpg
    Just over 200 rounds.

    Not sure if I missed something. I had some trouble with some of the Remington casings. When I seat the bullet some of them would fall in. I fixed this by pulling the bullet out a bit by Hand and putting a light crimp on them before reseating the bullet. Kind of weird it only happens with RP. The FC and Winchester had no trouble.

    Also there seems to be some variances with the seating depth. Some of the Bullets for RP cases got seated 0.02 to 0.05 mm too deep. I am going to try and pull the bullet tomorrow to redo them.

    P. S. I forgot to load the new brass.

    RP. Must have thinner brass at the shoulder. Dad used to have that problem. Not sure what he did to fix it. I never loaded 30-30 before.


    It doesn't matter whether the gun they have is illegal or not they don't care about laws in the first place. You could make every gun illegal and you would still have these guys armed to the teeth it's not laws against guns we need laws against criminals !

    30-30 rounds should be crimped imho. Nice batch of reloads.

    I certainly hope you kept the assorted brands of brass separate and worked up loads for each rather than just putting the same charge in all?
    Different brands of casings have different case capacities, so you could have some serious issues IF you are loading in the upper range of what is recommended in the manuals.
    You will most likely also find that the assorted brands will shoot differently from 1 to another.

    I can see mixed brass being an issue if you're loading for a precision competition, but from a safety perspective, if you're so close to your rifle's max pressure that a foreign brass sample is going to push you over the edge, then you should probably be backing off on your load anyway.

    Did you load up the 19.1grn loads? Honestly shouldn't load so much at a time, if its not tried and tested. Saves pulling 200 +.

    basic lee load data for H4198

    start load is 21.6gr never exceed 24.


    Bullet limit is 1950fps so actual limit is 22.16gr.

    I find that the powder measure wavers about 0.1gr from time to time. So I try to start 0.1 gr higher then the min to maintain a variance within acceptable min.

    compared to factory Winchester loads they will shoot kind of light.

    I think this is the 21.8gr rounds.

    Kind of weird that there is sort of a burn mark around one of the shots.

    So what was that 19.1/ 19.2 load then?

    So you loaded 200 rounds, w/o really testing it?
