No, I have my grandson with a de-capping die on weekends performing this task and 3 vibratory cleaners that he puts the decapped brass into about 180 pieces per cleaner. It gives him something to do and he isn't board with it yet. He is 6 Y.O. and so far does a good job. I take it after that and carry on with the inspecton and further cleaning and resizing. He's not quite old enough yet to shoot but it's coming up soon. He gets to see a part of the process of reloading and I think this is good. As he gets older I'll give him more tasks in the reloading process so he will know what he is doing when he comes of age.
I'm into this accuracy reloading, resizing brass to fit COAL to sloulder and seating the bullets to the throat, naturally with some clearance. It's a bit difficult for the M1A.
Reguardless, I want him to learn how to reload like this. This is his start.
The Springfield M1A is a troublesome rifle to reload for and this is the only .308 Win. rifle I have. I've been pushing the limits reloading for this rifle especially in the muzzle velocities I'm developing for it. Im working against "Slam Fire" and gas pressure issues with this action.
This rifle is shooting steel at 200, 300, and 500 yards now and I'm up against bolt rifle guys. They have the advantage. So far not so bad. A new Krieger barrel is in the works for this rilfe. Then all the bullet to throat space will be different.
The .300 Win. Mag. Remmy 700 target rifle for 1000 yard, I'm having built, won't be done until December this year and experiminting on this M1A with my reloads is tuning me up for this rifle. There will never be any factory ammo in this rifle. Custom reloads for this rifle only. I will only be ably to compete in F-class open rifle (F-O) and not F-Class Target rifle (F-TR) with this .300 Win Mag. target rifle.
That being said; I've once again taken a simple reply and written a short novel.
