Default What are your reloading Recipes

I curently do not reload, but after recent experiences with some commercially available ammo (Magtech), I've decided to set aside some money and buy the equipment and materials. I've decided that to start I would purchase Lee Percision gear. My first reload recipe will be for my .308 Savage Modle 10. I intend to buy Lupa brass and use IMR4064 powder (if I can find any), Federal Gold Medal #210M primers and Berger 210gr. VLD bullets.

That done, there is the issue of reloading recipes! What powder, bullet, case, proceedure is best for what application? No need to teach a reloading course, just the specs.!

So come on all you reloaders!!

Post what you are doing!! None of this "Well ten years ago I was..." stuff. Recent accurate complete info. on your reloads that the membership can use today.

Your post must include the following:

The specific weapon or application you reloaded this round for.
The Brass manufacturer, and case trim length.
The Bullet manufacturer, bullet shape, and weight.
The Primers used.
The Powder manufacturer, type, and charge weight.
Crimp? yes or no.
OAL of the finished round.

If you are posting your reloading data, please double check your post for accuracy, and typos before submitting your final post or edit to make corrections.

Members should be aware that the reloading can be dangerous and the information posted here is for the purpose of gaining insight into ammunition reloading for specific weapons and applications. All information is submitted voluntarially and should be double checked with one of the published reloading guides to insure the load is within the maximum established for that caliber you are reloading by anyone intending to use this information to reload ammunition. Always begin 10% below any recommended load and work your way up.

(Mods, if you feel further disclaimer is required, please add, if you feel or Admin determines this type of posting is inappropriate, feel free to delete)

Goodness! ?? At the risk of being obvious, that would take a lot of writting. And for little effect.

Laboriously writting and meeting your criteria for data while giving you our loads, even if we could talk you into using them, would only leave you loading for our rifles, not yours!

All of my data can easily be found in a Lyman, Lee, Hornady, Sierra, Barnes , Nosler or Speer manual. Take your choice!

True, but to access the entire data base, it costs $30/year! That would buy me 100 bullets, or a pound of powder or 1000 primers!!

What if I'm loooking for a specific reload for a DPMS LR-308 and a member who reloads has found THE reload combo for that gun? If they are willing to share information, why not?

Just thougt this could become a member resource.

I don't think your going to see much difference in Rem brass and laupa over all in a factory rifle. Them 210gr bullets are big and heavy for a 308. If your rifle is not a single shot it will be with them. they recommend you seat to touching the lands.

Ive found that a certain load in one rifle may not be the best in another.
ex. Two identical Rem700's may like a little different charge weight, bullet seating depth etc.
It can be a good starting point however.

Thanks Tango! Yea, the 168gr. Bergers were the member recommended bullet for the .308, just; they the 210VLD's, are available! Tough finding powder and primers, too.

210's are a bit heavy for a .300 WM unless you are shooting 1000 yards.

+1 with Gatekeeper,I have to load two different powder charges using the same 75gr Hornady AMax bullet for my 1-8 twist AR's. My RRA has a 20" bull barrel,and my Model 1 has a 18" heavy barrel but each one likes a little different powder charge to shoot almost identical groups at the same distance. Same is also true with my 300 WM rifles,one has a sporter barrel,and the other has a bull barrel and they like completely different loads.
