    You are right. I had to nose size the 6.5 RCBS bullets and the NOE 6.5 Grendel bullets to keep them from falling into the cases and chamber correctly. I was able to get the NOE 6.5 Grendel bullets to some what shoot, but it was a lot of work and...

    I feel that he should have pulled some bullets also. I have seen this discussed around. Hence not leaving your powder in the hopper. I would think that the powder has to be in contact with the bullet. So if he stored is ammo projectile up I don't...

    http://www.adi-powders.com.au/powder-equivalents/ I trust that chart. Use it wisely and within reason. N130 is an equivalent of Reloader 7 and 4198. Not: An equivalent. Not an equal. So start low and work up. 6.5x55 is going to be a beast...

    Second Ed Harris's the load. Basically figure out what you are doing with that load out. Light plinkers, far away plinkers, dead deers, or dead rabbits. Then use powders that allow you to achieve pressures that are the most efficient for your...

    Thanks everyone for reminding me not to be discouraged and to stick to the basics. Today was the closest taste of success the .260 Rem has ever given me. I just adjusted the seating depths on the Grendel and .260. Dropped the charges down to...

    +1 to what Bookworm says. All my guns will perform differently. So i just reserve it for plinking work. Haven't used BLL but i use 45/45/10 at the moment.

    Well how soft and hard of a lube is going to be one of those "your mileage may vary." kind of deals. Personaly i don't like hard lubes. Hard lubes are good for shiping and can cause leading. For pan lubing without a cake cutter, you need a firmer...

    For a tumble lube i would recommend 45-45-10 or Bens Liquid Lube. Both of those are made from Alox and the only tumble lubes i know. At 1100 fps just about any lube can work. What is your wheather like in your parts? Do you have a lubersizer or will...

    Rcmaveric replied to a thread Hi pressured load? in Cast Boolits
    PCing will also thicken the nose. So your nose sizes may be affecting seating depth if they varry alot. Sticking one into the lands or leade will spike your pressures.

    Don't forget to countersink/bevel that center hole edge. That way you swage down the bullet and don't scrap off the PB.

    For the 260: I honestly think i just seat out too far. Seating into the lands will cause a pressure spike. I also think i over estimated the begining charges also. All the loads i used were published. They were just big jumps beteen min and max. I...
