1. Uniform Primer pockets

4. Trim all brass exactly after using chamber length gauge
5. Chamfer with VLD tool
6. Anneal
7. Use redding FL bushing die for .001" neck tension
8. Stoney Pointe tool to determine OAL. Ruger's like no more than .01263" of jump!
9. Polish with stainless steel media with cat litter buffer
10. Use only Winchester 209 shotshell primers. Don't ask me why, I just know. If you can't get them to seat, refer to "Handloading for Dummies" manual
11. Use mica dry lube after you polish the inside of the necks with fine steel wool
Then seat bullets. Use only Winchester bulk bullets. Awesome! Seat bullets pointy end first. Micrometer SEATER die will help
12. I forgot. Lyman dippers for charging cases. Level off with pocket knife
13. Check concentricity of each loaded round. If more than .0002" exists, use collet bullet puller and disassemble rounds and start over. Try to diagnose where you went wrong.

If really master this process, your gun should shoot around .9" groups

Oh, I just read that it is already shooting .8" now.

NEVERMIND!

laugh


You guys crack me up- everyone knows that you can't seat bullet pointy side down with .01263" of jump! The ogive won't have sufficient neck tension to be concentric to the bore. You're going to have this poor kid so confused about reloading, shooting, etc.... he'll be afraid to drop his pants to crap in the woods without checking in with the forum first..... wink

WTF, I thought that's why we have our smiths add more freebore. Nothing like a loooooong throat...

I can tell by the way he wears his hat that he seats bullets the way I recommend.

If you don't believe me I can email you a picture of the group, had a couple <1 MOA groups but I kept the best one. Although that was a pretty hilarious post if I do say so.

I look at the cut of his jib, it's much more telling.

Yep

Shoots in his bath robe. Comfortable enough to simply dip the 7892sdsc

He throws his charges of 7892sdsc (wayyy slower burning than Retumbo, and super duper short cut) I believe. Says his ES stays well below 3.

Well, that explains it. Those new IMR powders sure are versatile.

He likes to cant the rifle, huh? Must have something to do with the hat or maybe the ugly angle of the targets on that slope.
