Re: .30-30 case resizing Yes/No?

I just started to have problems with my 30-30 reloads sticking in the chamber after firing because I wasn't full sizing. I'm currently full sizing ALL my 30-30 brass. Extracting some of the spent shells really got be worried that one would stick in so bad it wouldn't come out. For bolt guns, yes nec...

Re: Ridgway Super Shoot 2019 on concrete

Awesome shoot. Sorry I'm going to miss it this year. If you shoot both guns you'll be firing 400 rounds in 2 days. 3 matches on Saturday and 2 matches on Sunday. The Standard & Hunter Gun matches are run simultaneously. With 4 relays you shot Standard, spot, shot Hunter, spot and repeat. Where else ...

Re: Reloading

Let's get serious about reloading...nobody can afford to spend 10 minuets loading one cartridge with that Lee reloader. You're going to need 40+ cartridges for a match. You will NEED to invest a certain amount of money say about $150 to get started. So either do it or continue to spend $$$ trying to...

Re: Reloading

Sporty: Have you tried Magtech: 357 MAG 158GR LFN Muzzle Velocity 1085. I used these a long time ago before I got into reloading.

Re: 260 Rem Loads

Dang9 and everyone else: Thanks for the help and suggestions. I finally got a chance to get back up to the range yesterday and have settled in on using Varget. I have had good results with loading 37.5 gr for my 123gr HPBT and 37.0 for my 140 gr HBPT. Got a match coming up next weekend and will try ...

Re: Front sight height

Chuckd
Here's your choices. Hard to tell until you put one on the gun even if you use the formulas. CAUTION>>> You can only use a 17A not a 20A. The 20A is larger than allowed by the present rules.
17AHB - .404
17AEU - .464
17AUG - .594
17AML - .494
17ATC - .852

Re: Ridgway Super Shoot

Ridgway Rifle Club: Can't make the Super Shoot this year but will be there for the Sierra Classic, SB/HP Nationals and the 3 Gun Lever Regional match. The cement on the firing lines will be big plus. No more having to deal with the divot left by the previous shooter after they buried themselves in t...

Re: 260 Rem Loads

Dang9, I haven't got a real precision method of measuring how far off the lands I am . I am but using a empty case and pre-seating the bullet long and letting the bolt closure determine the lands. Than I pick it up with my seating die and back off about .020 There's still a good .250 in the casing e...

Here's what I have: Savage Model 10 purchased in 2012 Predator Hntr Max1 / accu trigger 24" Fluted Barrel Maybe I'm asking to much for a out of the box gun. Probably no more than 200 rounds put through it so far. I bought it to use in the 1000yd silhouette at Ridgway. I shot a couple of matches with...

Re: 260 Rem Loads

Rickf:
I guess I should have been clearer. My current loads are with Varget and 4831sc and they are producing great accuracy, but I'm looking for suggestions to get out to the 500M line better.

I've tried 4831sc and Varget with varied success going from the min to max with each in 0.5 increments. There okay but would like to get more accuracy. Would like recommendations for these powd...
