Is there a reason why I can't use WSR Winchester Small Rifle primers in 6mm Norma BR brass? I have a lot of WSR primers and can't currently find Fed 205M or CCI 450's.
I'll be loading Lapua brass with 25.0 gr of H4895 under Berger 105g target bullets.
Yes Max; you are spot on.
I just went to the San Francisco Gun Show yesterday, (12-Jan-2013). It was insane. The venue is huge, and the parking lot was absolutely full. The Cow Palace, (place where held), is not a small place. It was jammed with people.
I have been actively going to the gun shows for about 3 years now. Even last month, (December 2012), it was OK. However; the place was just absolutely jammed packed yesterday. There was definite panic in the air.
1. All of the pric
Don’t know what bullet you are loading for your Sav but I have used the Sierra #2140 165gr HPBT Game King in everything from the .308 Win to the .300 Win Mag, have seen over 200 deer killed with it and for the .30 cal, that is my go to bullet and I have yet to see a gun that did not shoot it under 1” with a li’l work.
86 Ram: I have been using only CCI rifle and pistol primers(both large and small magnum and regular and some BR2) for ever and did have 1 miss fire (BR2) I still use only CCI in everything except Winchester Small Rifle in my .22 Hornet no problems there either.
One step in the right direction, I do have received a manual. It’s a copy of a the original users instruction booklet, in this booklet is a clear drawing of the parts list. A German friend who collects manuals had one and send me a copy.
It looks like we can start ordering parts and the correct punch to remove the old bushing. This project will take a couple months before everything is back as normal, but at least there is a good chance we can repair it.
I do have a very goo
I have seen primers becoming available lately but also found that some shops are really jacking up the price and it can't be the manufacture. I have seen CCI Large Rifle primers range from $34.95 to $42.95 per 1000 (guess what ones I bought). There is some limiting on quantity, one shop had a 1000 limit and the other had 2000 limit. When I have found primers I have not seen limits to packets of 100. A VERY FEW bullets have shown up and the
Load tested Hornady 68gr match in 223 I am shooting a Savage model 12 VLP 1/9 twist best loaded with winchester brass CCI 400 SR primers 100 meters (109 Yards) were the following;
24.4gr Varget 68 gr hornady match
5 shot Group size 0.355 in
25.3 gr varget 68 gr hornady match
5 shot group size 0.290

Have started using American Select for my 9mm target loads. Availability of powders locally is a problem and I am experimenting with what I can find. Loaded with both Montana Gold and Berrys 115gr FMJRN. CCI 500 primers. 5.1 gr powder with oal 1.154. Works very well in S&W Shield.
Well it has been a bit since i shot at 1000 yards but most reloading bibles for us reloaders mannuels state 168 match projectiles 42 grains of reloaders 15 and cci 200 lr primers. I have used wolf primers since 3 years ago though and they hang in with any that i have used I shoot it out of a howa V 24 inch bbl and hit x ring at over 600 yards alday long took a bit working the round on seating depth before it would though. There are different ways to get your over all length worked out for your chamber bu
What I have done,this past weekend,is load .30-30,.308 Win. and .308 Norma mag. For the .30-30 and .308 Win. I used CCI 200,which I understand is the same as Federal 210.For the big magnum I used Federal 215 large magnum primers.I did back the charge off a little on the Mag as I am told that the magnum primers actually count as 2 gr. of charge.Thanx for the tips guys,one of these days if the weather smartens up I will get to the range and try out some of these loads...........NM1.
Wolf is the most consistent primer I have chronographed. I use them exclusively in competetion. They are great for hot loads and slightly stretched primer pockets. I think they are a few ten thousandths oversize. They conform to pressure about the same as CCI primers.
I forgot, my favorite 3" lead 1 3/4 oz load.
It's listed on alliant's site, so for the exact data go there.
3" Rem Hull with separate basewad, CCI 209M, Blue Dot Powder, RP12 wad - 1300 fps.
Nice tight crimps.
Aside from Ballistic Products, Precision Reloading is also a good source of Data, Hulls and Etc.
I've had good luck with this load, running it through Colts, a Remington-Rand WWII M-1911A1 and a Ballister-Molina.
Bullet: Lyman #452460 cast 200-grain semi-wadcutter.
Powder and load: Alliant Unique, 6.5 grains.
Primer: CCI Large Pistol Magnum (you can use regular primers, but the mags give a little better velocity and help the powder burn cleaner).
Velocity: Approx. 1025 fps at around 16,000 psi chamber pressure (max is 18,800 psi, according to the NRA).
I recently was told about bayoubullets.net ran and owned by Donnie Miculek (great guy). His bullets are cast lead coated in a proprietary lube nicknamed gator snot. I order 500 124 gr LRN 9mm to test after doing some research. After placing the order even with his back log i received them in less than a week. I loaded up 50 rounds with 6 grs of power pistol in starline cases and CCI primers. I shot 25 rounds through two different 9mm handguns, a S&W M&P Shield, and a Ruger LC9. I'm ve
i get flyers all the time, never figured out exactly the cause of them.
I did a little exparament and loaded the same brass bullet and powder over different primers.
i was shocked at the results, using 168gr sierra bullets and something like 41 grains of H benchmark in a 308win rem700
i shot 3 shot groups, cci large rifle primers shot about 2" left , remington 9 1/2 prettymuch dead center (sighted in with this combo earlier)
and benchrest cci or
