    280AI Body Sizing Die

    Just a side note. I also have a NCR 280ai. Love it by the way. I also have a set of Redding dies (bushing type). I had the same issue as you after sizing brass. I have a rcbs rock chucker press and was using a rcbs shell holder. My bolt would close a little hard for my taste after setting the...

    300 WSM

    My 280ai has me covered in the hunting department but this would look so nice in my collection. The serial number even matches my 280ai. AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!! I think I am going to pass on it. It's a real beauty of a rifle though. I...

    300 WSM

    I am having a hard time deciding on this rifle. I usually dont' weigh all the options first. I have a 30-06Ai that shoots great. The 300 WSM doesn't seem all that better of a choice but when were talking about buying a rifle what difference should that make. :roll:

    Best: Press and Dies

    Bingo. I believe the chrony is the most important tool available to the hand loader. I have redding, hornady and RCBS dies. I have used a rock chucker for an eternity. I have found that consistancy is the key to everything and if you don't shoot over a chrony you will never know how consistant...

    What was the first chambering you reloaded?

    I started loading 20ga on a MEC loader when I was sitting on my dad's lap. I took him to school in first grade for show and tell. Dad brought the MEC loader and some components. No powder though . He also talked to the class about gun safety. Those were the good old days. My brother taught me...

    Bore Solvents

    I used to use Hoppe's 9 and Sweets. The odor of Sweets bothered me and I made the switch to Butch's bore shine. I still miss the smell of Hoppe's 9. I need to take the shotgun out more often

    Thanks again Nosler

    I lucked out this year and drew a antlerless tag. After two weeks of not seeing anything but grouse and pickup trucks I managed to spot a doe in a cut. I went for my laser rangefinder only to find out the batteries were dead. Luck would have it that I was packing my Nosler custom in 280ai with...

    case trimming question

    I am not familiar with the Sinclair trimmer. It sounds like you took some meat out of the shoulder instead of or in addition to trimming the neck. I would discard the brass if the shoulder was cut. A picture would say a thousand words.
